 McAllen Convention Center

 Indoor Spaces 

Conservator, Concours Trailered and Driven, Unrestored, Preservation, and Thoroughbred cars are considered the best examples of the Ford Mustang that the hobby has to offer.  As such, these vehicles deserve a special place of prominence at an MCA National Show.  Conservator, Concours Trailered and Driven, Unrestored, Preservation, and Thoroughbred Cars will automatically be situated inside the McAllen Convention Center.  The placement of these cars will offer good visibility.  The Steering Committee of the Lone Star Mustang National has agreed that should not all of the 125 (or so) spaces be taken up by Conservator, Concours Trailered and Driven, Unrestored, Preservation, and Thoroughbred entries, then the vacant indoor spaces will be awarded as "first come, first serve" to those who registered early. Should the 125 indoor spaces be filled by Conservator, Concours Trailered and Driven, Unrestored, Preservation, and Thoroughbred the additional vehicles in these classes will be parked outdoors in the adjacent show parking lot. Vehicles parking indoors must must remain until end of show on Sunday at 5pm.

Fire extinguisher required for every vehicle. Indoor vehicles no more than a 1/8 tank of gas.

 Outdoor Spaces 

If outdoor parking is preferred please contact us to confirm your outdoor space. Overnight security is provided for outdoor vehicles Friday and Saturday nights.

Fire extinguisher required for every vehicle.

The McAllen Convention Center District will be home to the Lone Star Mustang National, March 16-18th, 2018. Vehicles and Vendors will on display both inside and outside in the adjacent parking lot.

 Our Location

Located in the heart of the Rio Grande Valley, the McAllen Convention Center is the preferred venue in the Region for gatherings.

The Rio Grande Valley is a region in deep South Texas, which includes Cameron, Hidalgo, Starr, and Willacy counties. To the East this region is bordered by the Gulf Coast of Texas. To the South it is bordered by the Rio Grande River and Tamaulipas, Mexico. To the North and West it is bordered by the Texas counties of Kennedy, Brooks, Jim Hogg, and Zapata. The Rio Grande Valley is sometimes referred to as the RGV or The Valley by locals.

The region is known for its warm weather, exotic birds, and citrus orchards. The warm weather attracts large number of retirees from the Northern United States and Canada during the winter months. The abundance of great shopping opportunities attracts Mexican Nationals throughout the year. Beach lovers and sports fishermen are drawn to South Padre Island, Port Isabel, and Port Mansfield on the Gulf Coast.
