Salute To American Graffiti

Event Link

Saturday May 20, 2023

10:00 am - 8:00 pm


This year marks the 50th year since George Lucas’ coming-of-age movie American Graffiti was released on the silver screen. Cruisin’ the Boulevard invites American model cars 1972 or older to join the annual parade of classic American cars cruising through the streets of downtown Petaluma where most of the movie was filmed in the summer of 1972. The best place to watch will be along Petaluma Boulevard, south of B Street to D Street. Bring a chair and/or a blanket, dress up in your best 1950s and ’60s gear, and wave to all the cruisers!  There will be food vendors, old-school DJ live radio, special activities, and guest appearances from some of the stars from the film.
