Hoods Up at the Kutztown Kruizz

by Kutztown Strong

The Kutztown Kruizz will return to Main Street in Kutztown on Saturday, July 27. One of the fastest-growing car events in the region, the Kruizz annually attracts over 250 cars and several hundred spectators.

The day will begin at 9 a.m. with registration and staging at the Kutztown Area High School, followed by a 10 a.m. parade of the cars down Main Street, where they will remain on display for the day.

In addition to viewing vehicles of all makes, models, and years, visitors will be treated to many other activities and, of course, lots of great food and shopping. Children will have an art space hosted by the Local Folk Creative Studio, Cub Scout Pack 101 will have an interactive activity, and the Kutztown PTO will have some games. You’ll be able to get a close up look at a Kutztown Police Department vehicle in celebration of their 100thAnniversary as well as check out the display of equipment brought by the Old Time Plow Boys.

There will be live music performances during the afternoon. The Dave Mell Blues Band will provide blues, classic rock, and R&B standards on the Main Street Stage. DJ Jeff George of Jumpin’ J Entertainment will have you rocking out or singing along with Karaoke in the 100 block of Main Street.

At 1 p.m., there will be a car awards ceremony at the Main Street Stage. The Main Street event draws to a close at 2 p.m.; however, the Kruizz continues into the evening with a 6 p.m. concert in Kutztown Park featuring the Fabulous Grease Band.

The Kruizz is hosted by Kutztown Strong, a local charitable non-profit. All proceeds from the Kruizz help the grassroots coalition to continue programs and activities that support the behavioral health and well-being of local children, youth, and families.
