Classics and Cruisers


The mission of “Classics & Cruisers on Hamilton” is to return to the nostalgia of cruising in Allentown.

In the late 1970’s, it was common for car enthusiasts to cruise the Hamilton Street “circuit,” park at one of the nearby eating establishments and enjoy camaraderie with other car enthusiasts.

With the rebirth of center city, America on Wheels & RB Collection as partners, and the dedication of several city staff, a vision of cars once again lining Hamilton Street was born.

“Classics & Cruisers on Hamilton” was a great success in 2018 and 2019. The event included trophies, music and a police-escorted cruise to the Ritz Barbecue. The planning for 2021 involves many new activities and pre-show attractions at the “Automobile Corner of America."

Pre-Registration cost is $20 per vehicle. Starting September 1st it will be $25 per vehicle.
