Montana's Best Auto Show Is This Sunday In Bozeman: Pro Tips

It’s big, well organized, insanely full of cool vehicles, and also free and open to the public. We tell you how to have the most fun at the Cruisn’ on Main Car Show next Sunday in Bozeman.

So here are the basics of the Cruisin’ on Main Car Show and we’ll also give you a few “Pro Tips” we’ve learned over the years so you can enjoy it even more. It’s four whole blocks of fun to have!

Cruisin’ on Main is a family-friendly event and children are welcome. But remember two things: some vehicles are quite valuable, so keep a close eye on your kids. Many of the vehicles need to be viewed, not touched. Second, the auto show can get quite crowded and it’s easy to get separated. Consider having a meeting point if you lose your group.

PARKING FOR THE EVENT: It is ideal to walk to the car show as the main street area will be closed for 4 blocks and the one way streets will have more traffic than usual. Of course the parking garage is available but it can get full for this big event. Patience will be needed. Keep in mind that there will be a lot of nice cars in the center that day… drive slowly and with a lot of caution. A small fender bender can be expensive 🙂
