Registration for the Lake Area Chamber of Commerce’s 29th Annual Magic Dragon Street Meet Nationals continues to fill! Registration for this monumental event has been open since January 1st and already we are over 1/3 full! We encourage all participants to register early, as registration is limited to the first 1,000 entries.  The 29th Annual event will take place May 5-7, 2017 at the Historic Bagnell Dam Strip. 

The Chamber is proud to host this annual event that brings several visitors to the Lake area. Without the support of the community, this event would not be possible. 
“The average attendance for this event is 10,000 people not including the 1,000 registered participants.  It takes the support of many great sponsors and community partners to host such a successful event.” Stated K.C. Cloke, Executive Director of the Lake Area Chamber of Commerce. “We are pleased to announce, for their third year in a row, Summer USA as our Presenting Sponsor for the 29th Annual Magic Dragon Street Meet Nationals.” 

“We are proud to be part of such a prestigious event which benefits the entire Lake area,” stated Joe Page, owner of Summer USA.  “This is obviously the best classic car event in the Midwest.” 

Participants can expect to see new and exciting events during this year’s show, as well as some old favorites. 

On Thursday, participants can try their luck for a winning poker hand during our Aces High Poker Run. The winning poker hand will receive a generous prize package sponsored by several Lake Area businesses. 

Stick around after the show closes on Friday night for the Beaver’s at the Dam Classic Cruise, and watch both classic and modern show vehicles cruise the historic Bagnell Dam Strip.  Enjoy the electric atmosphere of the show after hours, and enjoy tunes from our official media sponsor, Cool 102.7. 

During the show, visit with several different vendors along the strip and at the new Pit Stop, “fueled by Iguana”, conveniently located inside Two-Bit Town.  While visiting The Pit Stop, be sure to check out “Injun’ Joe”, aka “The Big Indian”, newly restored and standing proud outside of Two-Bit Town.  He made his return debut last June. 

Participants are invited to attend a sunrise church service on Sunday provided by Racers for Christ, and held at Luby’s Plaza from 8-8:30 am.  

Visitors and participants alike are encouraged to check out our list of accommodation sponsors on our website,, when planning their lodging during the show. 

The Magic Dragon Street Meet Nationals is the only car show in the Midwest that gives away a brand new muscle car every year.
