Magic Dragon Street Meet Nationals 2018
MAY 4-6, 2018
Historic Bagnell Dam Strip
Lake of the Ozarks
The Magic Dragon Street Meet Nationals is a unique show for all makes, models, and years of cars, trucks and motorcycles. The show celebrated its 29th year in 2017 with phenomenal weather, 1,000 participants and close to 10,000 spectators. Located in Central Missouri, we bring over 25 years of show experience to the historic Bagnell Dam Strip at the Lake of the Ozarks. The strip is closed to normal traffic during show hours, so we only have show vehicles within the boundaries. This creates and absolutely electric atmosphere! Some say it’s like being on the set of “American Graffiti”.
How did we get our name?
Some folks say that the Lake of the Ozarks, which is over 90 miles long, looks like a big dragon from the air as it winds through the central Missouri hills. Several years ago, it became known as “The Land of the Magic Dragon”. At our very first show in 1987, we used the name “Magic Dragon” and it has stayed with us to this very day.
