Throwback to the '50s



From the poodle skirts to the antique cars cruising through downtown, Back to the Fifties is such a nostalgic event for many of us who grew up in Grants Pass. Thinking on years past, images flood back of color and excitement all throughout the town.

For many, Back to the Fifties is a chance to display vintage cars they've put so much work into. Grants Pass houses many car enthusiasts, but people from all over come to join in the event. For a large majority, Back to the Fifties is an opportunity to celebrate this era in Grants Pass with family and friends.

Visitors and locals alike get to experience a step back in time during Back to the Fifties week. Various events are held throughout Grants Pass - and many are held in Historic Downtown, from the parade of vintage cars to the Elvis concert.



There's something about seeing your town hop back in time together that creates a magic experience.

The community comes together to make this week special. Various organizations host '50s themed festivities for the public, and many downtown shops participate ad well, staying open later and offering special discounts.
