Festival & Classic Car Show
In 70 years of operation, El Cortez Hotel & Casino has seen hundreds of thousands of cars come and go. We would like to showcase some of the classics that have graced our hotel over the past seven decades. In conjunction with our 70th year anniversary we are throwing our 2nd of 7 events, our Classic Car and Motorcycle Show.
This outdoor event will be held on the Jackie Gaughan Plaza and is open to the public. We will feature two live bands, The Ryan Whyte Maloney Band and The Freddie Eckstine Group. In addition food will be available with Engine 1 Pizza, a 1965 Seagate authentic fire truck which has been modified to include a wood-fire pizza oven. El Cortez Hotel and Casino will provide a cash bar as well for all guests.
The free event will showcase approximately 60 American-made, classic cars and motorcycles, courtesy of Ultra Car Unlimited, with five of the vehicles open to guests for photo opportunities both inside and outside the car. In true “vintage Vegas” fashion, El Cortez will also have a 1963 pink Cadillac on display with an Elvis impersonator behind the wheel for photo opportunities.
