Mustang Week 2017 Brings New Dates and Venues
The 16th annual event has a lineup designed to make it the best one yet
There are certain events we look forward to each year in the Mustang world. One that could be at the top of the list for most Mustang enthusiasts is Mustang Week, held in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. With a week full of festivities, large shows, smaller meets, and driving our Mustangs from here to there, there’s no shortage of activities in which to partake. There’s a burnout competition like no other, drift displays, drag racing, and autocross action, as well. It’s truly an event that has something for everyone. Plus, let’s not forget about our own Battle at the Beach dyno competition.
The annual event has reached driving age, and just like with teenagers, turning 16 has brought a few changes. First, the dates changed from July to September in the hopes of cooler temperatures, and with the previous date, the Myrtle Beach Convention Center was always booked. Well, the new dates corresponded with the convention center being available. For the Friday and Saturday car shows, that means there’ll be even more relief from the heat, and Mustang Week will host the first-ever Mustang-only trade show inside the convention center, as well. Along with the trade show, there will be a special indoor Mustang showcase on Friday and Saturday.
Mustang Week officially starts Tuesday September 5th with the Meet and Greet at Broadway at the Beach, but unofficial activities start as early as Sunday the 3rd with various club and Instagram meets across Myrtle Beach. Monday the 4th is known as Beach Day, and frankly where else would you rather be than Myrtle Beach on Labor Day?! Driving events take place Wednesday and Thursday at Myrtle Beach Speedway and North Myrtle Beach Drag Strip, respectively. Friday and Saturday are the two main show days before we all head back to reality on Sunday.
Mustang Week withdrawals are real, and attending the next event is the only cure. Get your Mustang ready for a week of fun you’ll never experience anywhere else, and we’ll see you there.
