Saturday, Oct. 7, San Bernardino Area Chamber of Commerce (SBACC) hosted the 5th annual Route 66 Rendezvous in downtown San Bernardino.
This year, hundreds of car enthusiast came to Route 66 Rendezvous to see over 1,000 cars, listen to music, eat good food, and have a great time with their families.
We are happy to be able to maintain the same event area this year. We are anticipating 1000 vehicles this year. The event borders are "E" Street to the West, 5th Street to the North, Arrowhead to the East and 2nd Street to the South.
The cruise route will wind itself around and through the event area. The approved route is 2nd St to Arrowhead Ave., north to 5th, West on 5th to "E" St, South on "E" St, East on 4th St. to D St, South on D to 2nd St., East on 2nd to Arrowhead Ave. Approximately 1.3 miles.
Court Street Square
Court Street Square will be the activity center of this year's event. The Court Street Stage area will be the location of the CARtoberfest (Beer Gardens) where the brew will be flowing.
Court Street Square parking lot will be filled with food and merchandise vendors. The vendors are being taken off the streets to leave room for the beautiful cars and more room to cruisin. We believe there will be something for everyone.
We have three Beer Gardens at this year's event. Located at Court Street Square, the front of City Hall and on Courst St. between "D" St & Arrowhead Ave.
