We are back in 2022!

The Coos Bay-North Bend Rotary Club is proud to present that Annual Cruz the Coos and Show ‘n Shine as part of the Bay Area Fun Festival. Cruz the Coos is one of the longest-running and largest classic car cruises on the Oregon Coast. It runs through the streets of downtown Coos Bay and is enjoyed by thousands of spectators.

The Show ‘n Shine is an opportunity to see vintage cars and trucks that have been beautifully restored. Talk with the owners and visit restaurants and amenities offered at The Mill Casino Hotel and RV Park. Proceeds generated from entry fees are put to use by the Rotary club to fund projects throughout the area including scholarships, humanitarian efforts, and other non-profit organizations in the community.
