Breaking News: Remainder Of Mustang Week 2019 Canceled

Breaking News – Due to circumstances out of anyone’s control, the Mustang Week staff has been forced to cancel the remainder of Mustang Week 2019 due to Hurricane Dorian. After much speculation and hoping that the Hurricane’s path would change, a South Carolina coast landfall became undeniable late Sunday evening. South Carolina Govenor McMaster ordered an evacuation via an executive order about 6:00 on Sunday evening. You can see the official order here.

The Mustang Week Staff did everything possible to hold any portion of the event possible, and were able to carry on both Monday’s Pre-Meet and Greet at Hard Rock and Tuesday’s Meet and Greet at Broadway At The Beach before being left with no choice but to officially cancel the event. The official word came down from Mustang Week staff member Mike Clay via social media about 1:40 on Tuesday. You can see the official announcement below:

September 3, 2019– Important Announcement from the Mustang Week Staff Over the past couple days, the Mustang Week…

Posted by Mustang Week on Tuesday, September 3, 2019

The Mustang Week staff first canceled the track events on Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, before ultimately making the decision to cancel the Friday and Saturday car show portion of the event. It seems they’ve made the best decision in regard to the safety of Mustang Week attendees and staff, as Myrtle Beach prepares to brave the storm.

Our thoughts and prayers go out to the Mustang Week Staff, all the participants, the vendors, and everyone still in the path of this storm. Please be safe returning home!

About the author

Jeff Southard

Growing up with a dad who loved Corvettes, I was destined to be a gearhead from day one. Beyond that, my dad owned an auto parts business for over 25 years. There, I learned the automotive basics as a child, then began my professional career working there after high school. From Corvettes and Superbirds to Hemis and Cobra Jets, my dad has owned a little of everything over the years, so I've had my chance to get some quality seat time behind the wheel of some rare, unique, and sometimes, just odd automobiles. I have owned my share of toys, including over 20 Mustangs. I guess to make a long story short, if you look up "car crazy" you will probably find my photo listed pretty close to it!
