2024 Maine Classic Car Show Cruise-Ins

Hello Car People! We’re off to an early hopeful start for 2024. It’s still a bit early to update this so this is all still info from 2023 but by April we’ll start to get some confirmation. By all means, please let us know about a regular public car gathering if it’s not on this list. I am occasionally surprised to hear about one I haven’t ever heard of after 15 years of managing this calender.

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.


Most of these weekly or regular events do return each year — you can reach out to confirm for yourself. We’re working on the annual car shows for now — check back mid-May for confirmation of the Portland Motor Club 2024 Car Cruise-in Calendar
