A beloved Canby tradition will drive on this summer, as the 27th annual rendition of the popular Cutsforth’s Cruise-In has been confirmed for Aug. 28 at the Clackamas County Fairgrounds and Events Center.
The popular classic car showcase founded by the Cutsforth family and sponsored by Cutsforth’s Market has traditionally been held at Wait Park in downtown Canby for most of the event’s history.
But the coronavirus pandemic forced last year’s move to the larger and more open spaces of the county fairgrounds — and Frank Cutsforth, owner of Cutsforth’s Market and founder/organizer of the Cruise-In, has confirmed to The Canby Current that the event will stay in park for the coming year.

One change will be a return to the more traditional walk-through format, as opposed to last year’s drive-thru setup.
“That’s what we’re hoping and planning for right now,” Cutsforth said. “It will be walk-through unless something changes.”
The event will be free for attendees, while those who want to showcase their rides will be asked to pay a nominal fee ($15 for early bird registration or $20 at the gate), with proceeds benefiting a local nonprofit.
Despite last year’s significant modifications due to the continuing pandemic, the 2020 Cruise-In was a runaway success, with more than 500 classic cars and other vehicles on display, and an estimated 2,000 more in attendance.
