Our annual show started at the South Bay Galleria in 1997, where it was held for 3 years. Then in 2000, we moved it to Long Beach Harbor, in the shadow of the Queen Mary.
The first few shows in Long Beach were held in a parking lot close to the ship, called "Seaport Village". We quickly outgrew that lot, and moved to the Queen Mary Events Park. Soon after that, we filled the park and had to expand into the large adjecent parking lot. For 13 years in a row, we passed the 300 vehicle mark! Now with our new location, not only is there more grass parking, but almost every spot has a view of the water!
MORE THAN JUST ANOTHER CAR SHOW....
Use our show website to book a hotel room. Many Ford lovers make a vacation out of the show. Late summer traditionally has the best weather in SoCal. If you live locally, then make it a STAYcation! There are several fun and interesting things to do, all within 25 miles of the ship. After exploring the Aquarium and other Long Beach attractions, make your way to other world-famous attrations like Knott's Berry Farm, Disneyland or even Hollywood.
We've found the perfect location for a car show! Be sure to register soon before we sell out again.
Take a look around the website and let us know what you think...
In 2014, we moved our popular Mustangs at the Queen Mary to a new, awesome location: Shoreline Aquatic Park - also known as "Lighthouse Park". With dozens of attractions, eateries and things to do within walking distance we found the PERFECT location for our annual show. Plus, NOW EVERY PERSON WHO PRE-REGISTERS WILL BE PARKED ON GRASS!
