About the event
The Chattanooga Cruise In is a laid-back car show located in the Dynamo of Dixie, Chattanooga, Tennessee. It all started as an open house at Coker Tire and Honest Charley Speed Shop, in downtown Chattanooga, Tennessee, and has grown into one of the premier Cruise In events in the South! The event is sanctioned by the Coker Tire staff, and each Chattanooga Cruise In features an open house, allowing spectators to view all of the cool stuff inside the 100-year-old Coker headquarters.
Streets surrounding Coker Tire are closed for the event, allowing participants to park on the street and nearby parking lots. We’re expecting more than 2,000 cars, trucks and motorcycles to invade Chattanooga for the one-day event, which has a 8am to 4pm EST schedule. Southside Saloon & Bistro is within the Cruise In area, but there are also food vendors who set up at the event. We promise you won’t go hungry! Chattanooga also has an excellent selection of restaurants, so when our event is over, you’ll have plenty of choices for dining!
As for the event overview, it’s fairly simple. Drive to Chattanooga, park your car and have a good time. There is no entry fee, no judging and no pressure. As this event grows, it continues to have a relaxed atmosphere with some of the coolest cars, trucks and motorcycles in the Southeast. Enjoy the special give-aways and promotions (door prize drawings are given away at 2pm EST), but don’t forget to check out the Coker Tire Museum while you’re here!
New for 2017 is the Scenic City Swap Meet, a spin-off event that will be held in the First Tennessee Pavilion, within walking distance of the Coker Tire headquarters. The event will feature up to 80 spaces of new and used automotive parts and memorabilia. Spectator admission is $5 and children 12 and under get in free.
This event is making Chattanooga a car guy destination, and we hope you will join us for our next Cruise In event! You DO NOT want to miss it! You can find more detailed information on our next Chattanooga Cruise In event on the Directions and Details page.
