Route 66 Cruisin' Reunion 2020 has been canceled
Greater Ontario Convention & Visitors Bureau has announced the annual Route 66’ Reunion® classic car event has been canceled. The eighth annual event was due to take place on September 18-19, 2020. “It is with deep sadness and heavy hearts that we announce the cancellation of this year’s Route 66 Cruisin’ Reunion” said Michael Krouse, President & CEO. “We know that this will come as an enormous disappointment, not only to classic car owners, but to our visitors and the regional community as well.”
This was not a decision made lightly and there are two overriding concerns that have caused the decision to cancel the event at this time. First is the uncertainty caused by COVID-19 that has forced the closure of entertainment venues and several festivals in the State of California. With the current uptick in cases of this disease and unknown conditions predicted for September the probability of factors outside the control of the event organizers forced the decision to cancel the event. Second, the primary concern of Greater Ontario Convention & Visitors Bureau is the safety and responsibility of the classic car owners, sponsors, exhibitors and the general public.
Route 66 Cruisin’ Reunion® is a Southern California ultimate weekend celebration of America’s love affair with the automobile and its world-famous highway, Route 66. Two days of cruisin’, contests, live entertainment, fabulous food, and revelry make it one of the best events of its kind. Held annually each September along historic, tree-shaded Euclid Avenue in Ontario, California, Route 66 Cruisin’ Reunion is where classic cruisers, convertibles, hot rods, and wicked Woodies fuel a jam-packed jamboree. Route 66 Cruisin’ Reunion is a family-friendly event located on historic Euclid Avenue and the downtown streets near Ontario Town Square. Come as a family, food or retail vendor, bring your classic car, and enjoy a stroll along the historic tree-lined Euclid Avenue to admire the beauty of these fabulous vehicles from yesteryear.
