Cruisin’ The Coast makes #2 in USA TODAY:
Best Car Show Competition 2019

Polls closed on Monday, July 15, 2019 at 11am CST, after a month of online voting. The winners were announced on on Friday, July 26, 2019.

“Last year, it was fantastic to be voted USA Today’s Best Car Show. We were extremely excited to just be nominated again this year alongside other world-class car shows, but making the #2 spot is a great honor, and we look forward to welcoming many more people from near and far to Cruisin’ The Coast for many years to come,” said Woody Bailey, Executive Director of Cruisin’ The Coast.  

“We are thrilled to see Cruisin’ The Coast receive such a great accolade. As one of our signature events held across the three coastal counties, it is a perfect example of how all three counties can work together to produce an absolutely phenomenal week of festivities throughout Coastal Mississippi. With over 36 million visitors to its website every month, USA Today has provided us with an excellent opportunity to showcase what we have to offer, which will in turn benefit the entire region as a destination,” said Milton Segarra, CEO of Coastal Mississippi.

According to USA Today, “Cruisin' The Coast is considered ‘America’s largest block party’. Imagine more than 7,000 vehicles – hot rods, classics, antique vehicles – in a massive car show along the beachside highway on the Mississippi Coast. Car lovers love this annual event, which has taken over the Mississippi Gulf Coast every year since its inception in 1996. Cruise between the different venues, each a festival in and of itself, and catch live music, food, merchandise, a car auction, swap meet, parade and plenty of car talk”.
