Salute to “American Graffiti” Festival & Vintage Car Cruise | Petaluma

Salute to American Graffiti Festival 2013 | PetalumaAn annual Salute to American Graffiti honors George Lucas’ timeless, coming-of-age film, American Graffiti, most of which was filmed in Petaluma in the early summer of 1972. Grab your favorite squeeze, jump into your hot rod, candy-colored screamin’ machine or the family car for that matter, and cruise on back to the “happy days” of the ‘50s and ‘60s.

The details change each year, but typically there’s live music, a street dance,  and see all the cool classic American cars & trucks cruise the same streets where the movie was filmed.
