The Benton Partnership, City of Benton, and Kentucky Lake CVB are proud to present the 2019 line-up for their Annual Benton Cruise In. Since 2014, these organizations have hosted multiple car shows in Benton. Each show is held at the Benton Court Square, also known as “Kentucky Lake’s Downtown”. This year, the events will be on June 1 and September 7. Both of the Cruise Ins kick off at 4 pm.

“Visitors can expect to see a little of everything – older classics, classic cars that have been restored, and brand-new cars,” said Bethany Cooper, City Clerk and Treasurer for the City of Benton. Registration for cars is free and all makes and models are welcome, so don’t be shy about entering!”


This year, over 1,500 people have showed an interest in attending the Cruise In and organizers are excited at the high level of interest.  The Cruise In’s have live entertainment - Jay Larkin and Craig Russell will get the party started in June, and Daryl Carr & Friends are already geared up for September.

Visitors can enjoy registering for door prizes including gift cards to restaurants, gas cards, oil changes, car wash buckets, tool sets, and even straight cash! There will also be the fan favorite 50/50 raffle as well. Kids activities include big wheel races for kids along with a coloring contest, and more.


Hungry? Grab some food from the food vendors while you admire the cars! Food vendors Sweetie’s Ice Cream, Happy Hot Dogs, and Amazin’ Blaze BBQ will be open and ready to serve you. At the September event, Burgers On Wheels will also join the line-up.

Everyone in the area is encouraged to enjoy a night of looking at impressive cars, visit with friends and neighbors, and relax with your family. For information on The Benton Cruise In, visit their Facebook page at The Benton Partnership.
