Surf City, originally scheduled to take place in August, has been reset for this weekend at Chinook Winds Casino Resort in Lincoln City.

Come to the beach in Lincoln City for a high-octane event fueled by cool classics, 4x4s, low riders, motorcycles and every description of American muscle car. Whether there to shine and show your cherished chariot, or admire the automotive audacity of others, you won’t be able to steer clear of the fun.

Chinook Winds Casino Resort is hosting the 21st annual Surf City Classic Car Show and Sound Off this Saturday and Sunday, Oct. 2 and 3. The event had been scheduled for August but had to be postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Surf City and Sound Off offers great vendors for food and car-related items and DJ Ultrasonic playing everyone’s favorite hits all day. This show takes place in the parking area of the casino, located at 1777 NW 44th St. in Lincoln City. There are classes for every type of vehicle, from muscle cars to trucks to imports.

There is no admission charge for the public to attend this family-friendly event. Registration for the Surf City car, truck and bike show and Surf City Sound Off is $10 and includes entry into one competition format, a T-shirt and $5 in free slot play. All registration proceeds go to support Angels Anonymous, a local nonprofit organization created to assist local residents with basic, immediate needs. The event is in the main parking area in front of the casino this year. People can register online at or at the registration booth at the event.

The Sound Off Competition will be awarding the loudest car audio competitors, as well as the best sound quality. In 2020, more than $10,000 was raised, and this year, the hope is to raise even more money for this worthy local charity.
