Somernites Cruise Celebrates 15th Season

Somernites Cruise recently wrapped their 15th Anniversary season of cruisin’ fun in Somerset, KY. The monthly classic and custom car event began way back in 2001 when a handful of local gear heads sought to create a unique event that focused on hot rods and good, FREE, family-oriented fun.
15 years later and Somernites Cruise has grown into a nationally recognized event that attracts 1,000+ show cars and trucks to town from 12-15 states on a monthly basis.
The event has changed some over the years but, has stayed true to its roots. The small town atmosphere with welcoming shops and friendly southern hospitality greet car owners and participants alike as the streets fill up during the Show & Shine each 4th Saturday, April thru October.
Each show features a special Showcase Corral area where amazing examples of a specific make or model are highlighted. Regular monthly attractions include a Vendor Alley for new restoration and performance parts along with a sizeable Swap Meet for used parts. A good variety of food and drinks ensure your tank never runs on empty while checking out the show. Cruisin’ tunes fill the air to complete the scene.   

The Show & Shine is just the prelude to an even more nostalgic Cruise Weekend staple. Late in the afternoon, huge numbers of hot rods and spectators gather along the main drag (US 27), a six-lane boulevard that runs thru the heart of town to see all the horsepower in action. ‘Cruising the Strip’ at Somernites has become a must-do tradition and a great way to cap off a fun weekend. 
Hot rods, customs, muscle cars and everything in between can be seen making laps, revving engines and even occasionally smoking the tires. It’s cruising like you remember it!
As Somernites Cruise rolls into its Sweet 16 season, it’s safe to say it’s a show that just gets better with time.  


Somernites Cruise is held on the fourth Friday-Saturday of each month April thru October in Somerset, Ky. The event is held rain or shine. Admission is FREE for participants and spectators. Visit for complete event info.
