Local Car Clubs & Car Meets

If you love cars and you are looking for something to do, check out these fun events. Cars are like a piece of art but it is not only the cars that are interesting, it’s the people that own them. Visit an event and listen to the stories the car owners tell of how they got their car and why. You will come away with new fiends and an appreciation of their vehicles.

Gainesville Car Friends

Every Friday night you will find this young, enthusiastic group on the roof top of the parking garage by the Phillips Center. You can expect to see around 30-50 cars. Lots of Japanese imports, American muscle cars, and European cars, of which many have been modded. You will find many people involved in the automotive world here, hanging out and talking about their straight pipe exhausts and their latest add-ons to their vehicle. This club is free to join via their Facebook page and open to all.

Gainesville Street Rods

Meets every 2nd Saturday of the month at Publix on 39th Ave, near I-75. The club consists of Classic American cars, Street Rods and European cars. There is a small fee to join.
