Friday Night at Old Town

Muscle Car Show & Cruise

Every Friday night beginning at 3 p.m., Old Town Kissimmee turns the streets into a series of high-performance, true horsepower engines. You’ll see show-quality muscle and factory-performance vehicles from 1964 and newer and classics from 1985 and older. The car cruise loops around beginning at 8:30 p.m. If you’re there to watch the cars go by, the best spot is the one you can find with a front-row area on the sidewalk. If you want to participate in this historic event, it’s free for car owners, just be sure to register before the event.

For participating cars, enter Old Town Kissimmee from Highway 192 under the east (left) side of the Jukebox signs where you’ll be greeted by event staff. Then, you’ll meet with a security escort for further instructions. Please do not drive on the bricks without permission (that’s a special treat!).

Every month, Old Town Cruisers could win $1,000! 

Saturday Nite Classic Car Cruise

America’s longest-running car cruise. A weekend tradition for more than 33 years. What more could you want?

Drive down memory lane with show-quality 1985 and older hot rods, street rods, and antiques. Come by during the day starting at 1 p.m. to view the cars up close and personal, and then see them cruise Old Town’s brick Main Street at 8:30 p.m. You can also stay until 11 p.m. for live entertainment and late-night bites.

Sunday Night Import Car Show

Trophy Row is hopping with the Import Car Show on the last Sunday of every month from 4-9 p.m. Not only is it free to participate in, but it’s also free to attend!

If you’re looking to enter your car, it must be show quality. JDM (Japanese Domestic Market), KDM (Korean Domestic Market), and Domestic Turner models are all welcome.

Exotic Cars & Coffee on Sundays

The word “exotic” usually refers to unusual or expensive cars. Here at Old Town Kissimmee, the term means “the type of vehicle that dreams are made of”. On select Sundays each month from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m., Trophy Row is display central for these unique cars. When you think of these exotic car brands, imagine the finest Ferrari, Lamborghini, Aston Martin, Lotus, and McLaren, just to name a few that you’ll see.

Wednesday Themed Car Show

Every Wednesday, Old Town Kissimmee hosts unique cars featuring show-quality specific types, models, or makes of cars and trucks. This event is free to the public and to participate in. Park in any open spot at Old Town, watch the cars go by at 5 p.m., and then finish the night with live music on the main stage.

Each Wednesday is a different theme, so you’ll see themes like Jeep Night, Camaros and Corvettes, MOPAR Night, VW & Mini Cooper Night, Mustangs & Classic Fords.
