As the summer months disappear and Labor Day is upon us, the Mustang world points its attention to the South Carolina coastal town of Myrtle Beach for the annual Mustang Week event. Now in its third year on the September date (the event was traditionally held in July before making the calendar move in 2017), the event has grown from less than 100 cars to one of the largest automotive events in the South.
It was not too long ago that the only unofficial events you had to worry about were getting into town early enough to go to the unofficial meet and greet at the old Hard Rock Cafe on Monday night, whatever shenanigans Travis and Stacy at SVT Performance had dreamed up, and finally, waking up Saturday morning in time to make it to the SEFB Fox-body Cruise. Today, things have changed, and even the Mustang Week staff now embrace all of the after-hours events during the week. It has become a tradition almost as big as the official events themselves. Take a look below we inform on everything going on from start to finish at Mustang Week 2019.
First off, your best bet for all official Mustang Week information is visiting www.mustangweek.com. There you will find all of the official events listed on the Event Overview page. You will also find the FAQ section which will prove very helpful during your week at the beach.
Beyond that, the best guide to reference is CJ Pony Parts “Ultimate Guide To Mustang Week”. This easy to use chart definitely hits most of the highlights of the week. It’s is a must for any Mustang Week participant to print out or have saved in their phone.
While this certainly presents participants with a week’s worth of Mustang fun, we wanted to dive even deeper into the week and provide you with the information needed for every single event possible, big or small. Take a look at some of the other unofficial Mustang Week events we ran across below.
