North Modesto Kiwanis

We will be serving breakfast downtown at the Love Modesto kickoff on April 30.

Our biggest annual event — the American Graffiti Festival & Car Show — will be held June 11 and 12, 2022 at the Modesto Junior College West Campus. All profits go to support local non-profits, scholarships and our large Christmas basket program.

Car registration is under way on the show website, www.americangraffitifestival. Note: show and parade are open to classic vehicles (1979 and older), and cars must be registered for the show to be eligible to participate in the June 10 car parade/aka cruise.

On Sunday June 12, Cars and Coffee Modesto will join us with newer exotic and muscle cars. Registration for that will be available on their Instagram account — carsandcoffeemodesto — later in the spring.


We hold in-person meetings at 7 a.m. Thursdays at Skewers restaurant at 821 L St., in downtown Modesto. Breakfast is $15 per person. We usually wrap up at 8 a.m.

We continue to have live Zoom meetings in conjunction with the in-person meetings. If you would like to join our in-person or virtual meetings as a guest, please fill out the contact from.
