50’s Roadhouse Classic Car Show & Festival

The 50’s Roadhouse Classic Car Show & 50’s Festival 

Free for Spectators

Celebrate the fabulous 50’s and Americana! The era is synonymous with fins, chrome, Elvis, Marilyn Monroe, Rock N’ Roll, pinups, and American Graffiti. The 50’s Roadhouse Classic Car Show & Festival, located on a beautiful grass field next to the 50’s Roadhouse Restaurant in historic Knights Ferry, hosts a classic car show, a pinup contest, vendors, live music, a raffle, and more! This fun-packed family event is free for spectators. You’re welcome to dress in 50’s attire and take a nostalgic journey back in time!

There’s plenty to do and see in this historic little town beyond the car show and 50’s festival.  Knights Ferry is perhaps best known for the Covered Bridge, the longest covered bridge west of the Mississippi. Knights Ferry is also home to wonderful hiking trails, and a number of small businesses that give visitors a nostalgic glimpse into the past, including a delightful ice cream shop and 2 great restaurants, in this quaint and scenic California foothill town.
