2019 Maine Classic Car Cruise-Ins

Hello Car People! We’ve hopefully updated the Calendar for 2019 and/but many of the items stay the same. There are occasional new events and sometimes we lose some. If you know anything about these events for 2019, please be in touch. It’s been hard to confirm a couple of them still indicated by a question mark — (?).

Listed by weeklies and monthlies — start and end dates & times as available. Please, please, please — help us keep this list current and accurate — if you KNOW of any changes, additions or cancellations, please let us know by email to info@portlandmotorclub.com or by phone to 207-233-9970. Portland Motor Club prides itself on having a list you can count on of what’s going on in the car world in our car state. We actually call or try to contact every location if we are unsure of their show or cruise-in status. Thanks for your help. A clean list is a happy list!

Any other regular summer destination ideas for a cruise? Please send us an email and hopefully we’ll include your suggestion.
