Events Description

Rock’n August 2020 will celebrate its 24th year of operation as the finest festival of Cars and Music in Western Canada and the City of St. Albert’s third largest annual event. Funds raised support the Alberta Diabetes Foundation.

ROCK ’N AUGUST Show and Shine has become one of the major events of Western Canada.

This year’s event will definitely have a different look and feel than past events. The current pandemic has caused the cancellation of virtually all large scale social events over the summer. As a result, social distancing and other health safety guidelines prescribe the guidelines for the planning of Rock’n August 2020. While some events are new, all the events this year pay homage to events of the past. At the heart of the week’s activities are opportunities for classic car owners to get out and enjoy their rides and spend time with so many of the friends they have met as part of this unique car community. Every event is designed to get you driving without worrying about where or why you are going –true classic car nostalgia.

There are two different neighbourhood cruises and one Country Cruise during the week. The new neighbourhood cruise routes take cruisers into a variety of neighbourhoods throughout St. Albert, much like the very popular Friday Night Cruise of old. The Country Cruise will have cruisers “stretch their legs” as the route passes through Morinville and Cardiff enroute to the Edmonton Garrison.

The “Wheels Of Fortune” scavenger hunt guides participants to solve clues to arrive at each of 10 locations where they will meet many of our cherished sponsors. A draw will determine the top 3 prizes of $300, $200, and $100. PLUS Mercato’s is hosting a free draw for a $100 store certificate.

The Poker Runwas an event last year, but this year it is fully compliant with the social distancing and health guidelines set out by Alberta Health Services. While there are prizes for best hand and runner-up, there is also a prize awarded for “worst hand”.

Cars and Coffee is a new event that “brims” with simplicity. Bring out your classic ride and join us at Mercato’s. Buy a coffee and get a complimentary RNA doughnut on Friday. It is a great way to begin your day.

In our current environment of social distancing, we are
7bringing back the drive-in movie in a big way with a movie on Friday and Saturday night.
