Petaluma’s Salute to American Graffiti is an annual celebration of the film American Graffiti (1973), classic American cars, cruising the “main drag”, and rock ‘n roll music of the ‘50s and early ‘60s. This multi-day community-wide celebration is most known for its large car show and cruise.
This is a non-alcoholic community-wide celebration offering family fun for everyone! Proceeds fund the Petaluma Save-A-Life Project, Scholarships and other projects and programs that support arts, education, history, safety, and welfare.

If you are interested in participating and cruising back to the 1950s and 1960s, this year’s cruise route, will be nearly six times the distance as last year taking you through Petaluma’s Historic downtown and some of Petaluma’s oldest homes on D street.
