August 25-26th: Wallowa Mountain Cruise Car Show

Come join us for a fun filled weekend for the new Wallowa Mountain Cruise Car Show.

It’s one of the best little car shows in the Northwest. Up to 200 antique cars and hot rods take over Joseph's beautiful main street to redefine AWESOME!

This event was formailiy known as the Oregon Mountain Cruise and was created by Chuck Garrett of Moonlight Graphics and Jim “Ragman” Tuschhoff in 1988. It is now directed by the Joseph Chamber with the help and grants from the local community. Origionally held in early June, the show got rained on about half the time - it's now in a dry time of the year.
