WHO ARE THE MAINSTREET CRUISERS?
The Mainstreet Cruisers is an Edmonton area not-for-profit car club established in 1993 to provide place for people with an enthusiasm for the car hobby to get together in an informal atmosphere. Our members come from all walks of life and own all sorts of vehicles from 1915 up to and including the newest modern muscle vehicles. They drive classics, customs, hot rods, rat rods, sports cars, trucks, and motorcycles.
Owning a vehicle is not a requirement for becoming a member. All you need is a keen interest in the automotive hobby and that alone will make you more than welcome.
All through the summer, we get together at car shows and cruises. On Tuesdays you will find some of us at Safeway on Wye Road in Sherwood Park, on Wednesdays at Wendy’s at Mainstreet Mall, 66th St. and 28th Ave, on Fridays at White Oaks A&W in Edmonton, 122nd St. & 137th Ave., on Saturdays at A&W on 112 Ave and 149 St., and on Sundays at Blackjack’s Roadhouse at 2110 Sparrow Drive in Nisku from 11:00 AM to 3 PM. These are all informal gatherings and folks come and go as they please. Afterwards we usually end up at a Tim Horton’s for coffee or we may go for a little cruise.
During the summer we attend car shows throughout Western Canada, often travelling as a group. In the winter months we do shop tours and Sunday brunches, meet at area coffee shops on Fridays, and have a Christmas party, usually in late November.
We meet once a month to determine how we can best serve the automotive community and our area charities. Our charity car show is held on the second weekend of July at Mill Woods Town Centre, 23rd Avenue and 66th Street, in support of Little Warriors and the E4C School Lunch Program.
Membership is renewed each June. Dues are $20.00 for a single membership, with one vote for club issues, or $25.00 for a family membership, with two votes on club issues.
If you would like to join a club with friendly, like-minded individuals with no pressures attached, think about coming down and visiting with the Mainstreet Cruisers.
