Crusin' da Vines Metal Muscle Nights

 

1st Cruise – May 20, 2021 – tentatively

Preliminary plans for the 2021 season. *Note subject to change based upon social considerations & responsibilities.
Enjoy the open spaces and gently rolling grass meadow space behind the main market barn building. Much like our great Cruise In Tradition of years past with the addition of an informal swap meet!
ALL parking for the event will be held on the lawn/meadow area behind the market and in and around the hilltop pavilion. Activities (Tire climbing pile, pedal trikes etc.) areas will be open also.
NEW in 2021 will include an outside food vendor and our outside beverage barn serving wine, beer and soda! You are still welcome to go inside and visit the main market with our full menu and beverage selection as seating permits.
The music and events related to the cruise will NOT be taking place in front of the market. We need this area for our everyday guests. The area just became too congested before 2020 & Covid-19. Our local first responders had suggested we needed to do something different to ensure they would be able to perform their duties to the best of their abilities if necessary.
We have hung on through 2020 and hope to adapt and do even better than years past in 2021. By making these changes we now have acres and acres of parking that we maintain year round that in the past has only be used in the fall and during special events. 300, 500, 800 vehicles….. we got this.

We offer activities and fun for the whole family!  Of course it all starts with the cars – and we get a lot of them .  All different kinds –  classic, oldies, rods, customs and bikes.    Farmer Bill dj’s the music from 5 – 8 pm with door prizes, 50/50, and a different food special every week.

There’s no admission and no judging.  Just bring your cars/bikes and have a lot of fun!  Official start time is 5 pm, but some days cars start pulling in as early as 3:00.  As the nights get shorter it wraps up sooner too. We get a very nice mix of cars, some are regulars who come every week, but there are always new rides to look at as well.  The folks who bring out their cars are a real friendly group of people who are always happy to tell you about their ride. Bikes are always welcome as well and we have been seeing a steady growth in numbers of bikes.

Maize Valley offers free wagon rides around the vineyard, delicious food (including a weekly cruiser special) and you can  grab a glass of wine, or a delicious cold craft beer to enjoy. As we get closer to fall – the pumpkin cannon might make an appearance.  Maize Valley’s pumpkin cannon can shoot a pumpkin 1/2 mile in the air!

We are not just a business who opens its doors to gearheads and tries to make a buck off them.  Members of the family have oil in their veins you might say!  Bill & Michelle, two of the family members and owners at Maize Valley own a 65′ Impala SS.   It has been on the road since 1990.   It’s a bit dinged up but they raised three kids in it and it has gone on its fair share of Ice Cream runs and trips to high school dances.  Bill  did a frame off recondition of his Jeep (It is a “work Jeep around the farm) which included making up cross members and over all cut, weld, and rebuild.

We hope to see you soon!  At Maize Valley We Make Great Wine and Beer…FUN!!
