Cruise, BBQ & Blues Car Show 2017

Cruise, BBQ & Blues Car Show takes place on April 1, 2017 from 10am-3pm at the Oro Valley Marketplace. Blending science, mechanics and design is an innovative art form in its own right. Car design is a ubiquitous but often overlooked art form which SAACA brings to light through their annual Classic Car Show. Over 30 Exhibitors, Food Trucks and Vendors. Up to 200 Classic & Antique Cars on display. Art Activities and Family Jump Land. Live Music on the event main stage

The event invites thousands of people out to rev up the weekend with live oldies music, kids’ activities and great food. With multiple Best of Show, Best Interior, Best Paint, Best Engine and People’s Choice awards will be given.

The one day event will feature live Blues music on the main stage, classic BBQ on the grill, and an endless supply of everything we have come to love about fast cars and classic auto!

LIVE MUSIC Main Stage Performances: Bryan Dean Trio offers more than good music but an experience. One might have seen them perform number of times but it guarantees no two shows are alike. The band believes in improvisation rather than exact repeats of the tunes to keep the audience captivated. The band won the last Southern Arizona Blues Heritage Foundation Blues Challenge. Competing with 110 bands nationwide in International Blues Challenge, they advanced to semi-finals. Each member is an honoree of Arizona Blues Hall of Fame, and Dean and Gilmore are inducted into Tucson Musicians Museum. They have opened for many international acts such as Kim Wilson, Coco Montoya, George Thorogood and Dr. John. The band has three critically acclaimed albums, “Pink Elephant” and “Sobriety Checkpoint,” “Live at Boondocks” and now working on their fourth release.

CLASSIC CARS The Southern Arizona Arts and Cultural Alliance is proud to present the annual Oro Valley Cruise, BBQ & Blues Family Festival on Saturday, April 1, 2017 from 10am-3pm, Oro Valley Marketplace.
