This year, automobile lovers will be able to celebrate Indiana’s Heritage in automobile manufacturing along with a bevy of Porsche vehicles during the annual CruZionsville rolling into town on June 4.

The largest Porsche gathering the state is simultaneously a fundraiser for Alzheimer’s research, raising more than $50,000 in the past five years.

In celebration of the state’s bicentennial, CruZionsville has been designated an Official Legacy Project, supporting Indiana’s community projects and programs. Five Hoosier-built automobiles are anticipated to share space with the Porsche vehicles including Stutz, Auburn, Cord and Studebaker. A program by Dennis Horvath, noted author and expert of Indiana-built cars, at the Brick Street Inn is free to the public with first-come, first-served seating.

The day will begin with a parade at 10 a.m. leaving from the Stonegate Meeting House.

“It will be an opportunity for people to see another part of Zionsville that they haven’t seen before,” Steve Tarr, event organizer, said.

The vehicles will travel east on Oak Street to reach their final parking spot on Main Street where they can be viewed until 3 p.m.

The day is filled with art projects for kids, automobile judging for car lovers and a food eating contest for all to enjoy.

The automobiles that range from 1950s to new are judged based on car class with a Best in Show prize selected by the public. After inspecting the cars, hearing them run and speaking with owners about their vehicles, a pre-selected group of young judges will present the Youth Award to their favorite Porsche.

“Cars are art,” Tarr said. “We want to create an appreciation of art in all forms.”

CruZionsville products can be found throughout town from a special blend of Inga’s popcorn, to Hopwood Cellar’s wine, to an original blend of B. Happy Peanut Butter. Proceeds from shirts, signed posters, visors and a silent auction will go toward Alzheimer’s research.

Tarr appreciates that the event brings together so many different facets of Zionsville.

“We feel that this is a community event,” said Tarr. “It’s really getting the community together to be a part of this fun family focused activity.”
