About Our Event
The Cops, Cars & Cruisers event is a long standing community outreach event which began in 2006 under the name Cop & Kids and Rodders & More at Post Falls PD. It was both a department open house and a car show. I brought the event over to Liberty Lake when I transitioned to the Liberty Lake Police Department as the Police Ambassador. Over the years, the event has grown from just a car show, to a community outreach event that includes a car show, community oriented displays and activities, and a variety of performances and demonstrations. In 2023 we were supported by close to 200 vehicles in the car show, 15 community oriented displays, and a variety of spectators, supporters and friends! 2023 brought record attendance and record support towards Special Olympics. As the event continues to grow, we will be adding a Craft & Vendor Fair in 2024. More attractions to be added and announced soon!
This is a one-of-a-kind event that is designed to involve the community, in a laid back, family and fun atmosphere. Along with it being our annual community outreach event, it also benefits our local Special Olympians. All registration fees and donations collected prior to and during the event go directly to support the local Special Olympics programs. There is no expectation of you to pay a registration fee or donate to Special Olympics, but there is an expectation for you to enjoy the event!
What To Expect At The Event
Expect a good time! Expect to meet some wonderful people who share your same interests in cars, community, and Special Olympics in a great family oriented atmosphere! Expect a relaxed event with a variety of great vehicles of all type, a community oriented display area where local organizations that cater to the local communities will display and provide information on their services, and a vendor and craft fair which will showcase local arts and crafts. There will be various car clubs represented. In 2023 we had members of The Pharoahs of Spokane, The Gents, The Dirty Bombs, The River City Dodge Challengers and others. Various events and activities will be scheduled throughout the day including the arrival and departure of the Spokane Sheriff's air unit and others.
