West parking lot and inside the Bancorp South Arena!

This festival celebrates the history of the American automobile with a huge cruise-in of over 1,000 cars for this three day event. It’s also a celebration of the birth of Rock n Roll and it’s roots in Tupelo, MS.  The event kicks off on Thursday night, May 4th, with a drive-in movie in the west parking lot of the Bancorp South Arena. The movie feature is usually an Elvis classic movie.  On Friday and Saturday nights there will be free 50’s and 60’s style entertainment inside the Bancorp South Arena that’s guaranteed to make you move your feet. A parade of classic cars early on Saturday morning puts over 400 classic cars rolling through the streets of Tupelo.  If they choose to participate, there is a Poker Run with sites located around the area that will keep these classics rolling throughout the day. It’s all just a weekend of cruising and enjoying the hospitality that Tupelo is so well known for. The event concludes on Sunday morning with a cash giveaway of twenty $500 cash awards along with several other special awards. Everyone will be headed home or out to eat by 11:30 Sunday morning and hopefully they will share their trip experiences with their friends back home. 

Vehicle registration is only $35 before April 15th and $45 after that date.  This event is free to the public.  There is no fee to come out and look at the cars and enjoy what the Tupelo Blue Suede Cruise has to offer.  Plan your trip now!
