Over 1000 Classic Cars and Trucks and over 10,000 spectators

In 1978 local car club The Freeport Street Machines got permission to host a 'cruise' through downtown Freeport as a showcase for the hard work put into their cars. Today, Freeport Cruise Night is the premier show car cruise event in northern Illinois.

Upwards of 1000 show vehicles and something over 10,000 spectators gather in downtown Freeport, Illinois to marvel, reminisce and talk classic cars and hot rods. There's good food, live music and great photo opportunities.
