Cruising The Alabama Gulf Coast Car Show And Parade

Cruise the coast—or just check out the cars and vendors—at the annual Bama Coast Cruise show at The Wharf in Orange Beach, Alabama.

Cruising The Alabama Gulf Coast

The 7th Annual Bama Coast Cruise show will be held April 28-30, 2016, at The Wharf Entertainment Complex in Orange Beach.

Show Hours & Location

Thursday, April 28: 10 a.m.-5 p.m.
Friday, April 29: 9 a.m.-5 p.m.
Saturday, April 30: 9 a.m.-5 p.m.

The Wharf Entertainment Complex is located at 23101 Canal Road, Orange Beach, AL 36561.

The Show

The Bama Coast Cruise is an inclusive show that welcomes anyone who loves cars and enjoys cruising the open road. There are no restrictions to vehicles that can be entered into the show. “Bring your dream ride and cruise with us” is the show’s motto.

The show is a laid-back, family-friendly weekend full of cars, fun events, entertainment and Southern hospitality.

Main Street and the large west parking lot will be closed to thru-traffic on Friday and Saturday during the weekend. Only Bama Coast Cruise show cars will be allowed to drive or park in these areas.

Vendors, Swap Meet, Music & More

The Vendor Area and Swap Meet are always popular with exhibitors and spectators. D.J. Ronnie Foster will be on hand all weekend long spinning tunes and announcing prizes.

Poker Run

Friday’s poker run is high stakes fun as participants cruise all over the island in search of the best poker hand to win cash prizes.

Parade Cruise

The highlight of the Bama Coast Cruise is Saturday’s annual parade cruise, which will take place at 30 mph.

Stretching out over 14 miles, the parade cruise runs from The Wharf, down the scenic beach highway and back. This allows beachgoers to enjoy the parade.

As the parade approaches, many cars along the parade route will pull off the road to wait and watch the parade file by.

Make participating in the show or hanging out with the exhibitors easy by staying at a nearby condo or gulf front house in Orange Beach.
