2018 Cruise Nights
May 2, June 6, July 11, August 1, September 5
6:00pm to 8:30pm
(rain dates each following Wednesdays)
Motors are running, oldies are playing, and families are enjoying both. Cruise Nights offer the opportunity for a stroll down Main Street while viewing the art, muscle and uniqueness of antique, collectible and performance cars and motorcycles. With 40 cars average for each of the 5 Cruise Nights, there is so much variety from a farm tractor to motorcycles to tricked out newer cars to antiques to street rods to the classic muscle of the 60’s and 70’s.
Vote for your favorite car at our registration desk located in front of the Metuchen Savings Bank and by the DJ stand. There are three People’s Choice Awards: 1st, 2nd and 3rd Place. This year the awards will be trophies along with a Metuchen Area Chamber of Commerce Gift Certificate.
These nights bring back the nostalgia of the old town neighborhood, the excitement of a fair, the enjoyment of meeting friends and neighbors and the tastes of Metuchen’s eateries, taverns and ice cream shops. So mark your calendars for the first Wednesday of every month beginning with May and ending in September. Rain date is typically the following Wednesday but always check our website for announcements.
The Metuchen Area Chamber of Commerce extends their thanks to our many sponsors and volunteers without whom this event would not happen. Stop by Chamber businesses and thank them for supporting the community!
Have an interesting car, a vintage car, antique car, motorcycle, even a great new model such as the latest Corvette or electric car, or other unique vehicle come on down and show it off on Main Street in Metuchen. A member of a motor or car club, come on down. We would be happy to see you. No preregistration required or registration fee; however, a donation would be appreciated. Simply register your car after 5:30 PM at the Metuchen Area Chamber of Commerce registration table located in front of the Metuchen Savings Bank and by our DJ (just follow the music). Find a parking space on Main Street or adjacent New Street. Available spots are located at the parking meters which have the Red No Parking signs; these spots are reserved for the cars on display.
Aside from a great evening, meeting fellow enthusiasts and visitors to downtown Metuchen, and enjoying local eateries, you have the chance to win one of three People’s Choice Awards (1st, 2nd, 3rd Place). In 2016, trophies will be awarded along with a Metuchen Chamber Gift Certificate.
Please note, Rain Dates are typically the following Wednesday. Cruise Night cancellation due to inclement weather will be posted on our website.
