Magic Dragon Street Meet Nationals – May 2-4, 2024

One of the first big events of the season is the Magic Dragon Street Meet! Head over to the Historic Bagnell Dam Strip for one massive car show, the largest in Central Missouri! While this year’s event is already sold out for participants with vehicles for show, all spectators are welcome, and the fact that it sold out so early goes to show it’s going to be one event you won’t want to miss. This unique car show features all makes, models and years of cars, trucks and motorcycles. The show started in 1987 and now has 800+ participants and over 10,000 spectators annually. The strip is closed during show hours on Saturday, which makes for an electric atmosphere; according to their website, “Some say it’s like being on the set of ‘American Graffiti’.”
