Save the date and plan to head to the Beaver Dam Park Amphitheater for a fun day for the entire family. Last year the attendance record was set with close to 400 cars, trucks, and motorcycles. Let's beat the record this year. The Beaver Dam Cruise-In is set for Saturday, May 25th, 2024. This one-day automotive event will be something special. This year they're adding a vintage bicycle show to the event!



Whether you want to show off your classic car, or you just want to check out the best vintage vehicles in town, there will be something for everyone in Beaver Dam. Not only all of those vintage vehicles to admire but also the world-famous Larry Brown Memorial Burnout Contest with a $500 cash prize for the best burnout.

Check out the footage of the Beaver Dam Cruise-In and burnout contest!


The Down Hill Derby is a popular event with a chance to snag money.

I'm newer to the area, where can I find more info about this? - Jason Kodatt II

We're ready and can’t wait! - Mark Stephens


Cash prices will also be awarded during the Ronnie Southard Memorial Hot Wheels Drag Racing contest for the kids. It's for children ages 5 to 15 years old. Cash prizes for 1st and 2nd place will be awarded.

Ronnie Southard was my cousin and what a great man he was! I’m planning on bringing my Mustang GT convertible to the cruise inn in honor of him! - Donna Fox

The Bike show is back this year hosted by Ky. Hawg Mafia. There's a cash prize for the best in the show.


Get ready to rev up those engines for the Dyno Challenge with a cash payout at stake. Do you have the most horsepower under the hood? Will you walk away with the cash and braggin' rights? I love the roar of the engines and hanging out with fellow classic car enthusiasts. It's so much fun!

The Beaver Dam Cruise-In helps the community in a very big way.

We were able to present a $5000.00 donation to the Ohio County Vocational School Auto Mechanics class. When Beaver Dam Cruise In started almost 10 years ago this was the goal to give back to our community. This donation will buy much-needed tools for auto mechanics students so they can learn a trade and possibly a career in the industry.

Beaver Dam Cruise-In presented a $700.00 donation to Boy Scout Troop 173 yesterday. They will be able to use to money to help send kids to camp and other activities.
