Going strong since 2006, the Monterey & Rod Festival is back in town. Take a trip back in time this week, May 9-10 and experience the iconic era of rock and roll. Let the Monterey Rock & Rod Festival act as your own personal time machine and enjoy the era that gave us malt shops and sock hops. This fantastic combination of live Rock n’ Roll music from the 50s and 60s and displays of the classic cars that defined their decades, there’s a reason the Monterey Rock & Rod Festival is a beloved and much anticipated event on the Peninsula.
A perfect event for car buffs and vintage lovers alike, this celebration of 50s and 60s-era music and custom and classic hot rods, street rods, muscle cars and trucks, this festival is more than just a good time. The festival helps to raise much-needed funds to support the Gateway Center of Monterey County. With food and vendor arcades set up around the Monterey County Fair Grounds the Monterey Rock & Rod Festival promise top notch entertainment and has the little edge of nostalgia to bring you back to the good old days.
Enjoy a Friday night Sock Hop at the Monterey County Fair & Event Center and a full weekend of car shows and live entertainment at the Custom House Plaza in downtown Monterey. Musical entertainment throughout this two-day festival includes Terry Sylvester, formally of The Hollies, Ron Dante of The Archies and Monterey’s own Chicano All-Stars and so much more!
So, don’t miss out on this weekend of hot rides and catchy beats, we look forward to seeing you there!
