About The Event
Our goal with Bama Coast Cruisin’ was to create an inclusive show that welcomes anyone who loves cars and enjoys cruisin’ the open road. There are no restrictions to the vehicles that can be entered into the show. Our motto is: Bring your dream ride & cruise with us!
Bama Coast Cruisin’ is an absolutely stunning show. Held at The Wharf in Orange Beach, AL and set against the backdrop of the Inter-Coastal Waterway and the Canal Bridge. It’s a laid back, family friendly weekend full of amazing cars, fun events, entertainment and Southern hospitality.
Main Street, which takes visitors through the heart of the shops and restaurants at The Wharf, the large Carmike Parking Lot, the Boat Owner’s Lot & the Marina Lawn will be closed to through-traffic on Friday & Saturday during the weekend of our show. Only Bama Coast Cruisin’ show cars will be allowed to drive or park in these areas. It’s a unique and exciting atmosphere for a cruisin’ event and we have had only positive feedback from our attendees; our exhibitors who appreciate the opportunity to visit local shops and choose from several delicious restaurants without ever leaving the show and patrons who come to The Wharf and find themselves in the middle of a car show! With plenty of convenient parking, we would like to invite everyone to come and enjoy the show!
