Crystal Lake Car Shows Return in May

The Crystal Lake Car Show ain’t your grandad’s cruise night, but we think he’d really like it, so bring him! Bring the whole family! This is the place to be first Thursdays at Park Place (406 W. Woodstock St.) May 3 through October 4.

Enjoy live music by Jimmy Nick & Don’t Tell Mama, the burbs’ best rock-blues band; food trucks; bar (indoor/outdoor); and family activities. Each night has a theme and there will be plenty of awards, lots of eye candy for all!

The May Hot Rod show will feature guests 103.9 The Fox; and the June Ladies Night show will feature Star 105.5. Shows run 6 p.m.-9 p.m.

All are invited, there is no registration fee. Show cars park in the Park Place lot, spectators use marked lots. See Facebook event page for details.

Vendors and sponsors please contact or 815.900.8522.

About the Show

The city of Crystal Lake was without a cruise night for a decade until McHenry County Living and Crystal Lake Brewing partnered to bring it back in 2017 with roaring success. The show immediately outgrew the brewery’s lot, but fear not – adults will be able to enjoy CLB beer at the 2018 shows!
