Custom Car Show 2019

2015 Car show

Each year the city of Mason City celebrates its musical history with a Band Festival Parade. In the past, The "Music and Wheels" Car show was put on by the River City Street Rods and held each year in conjunction with this. However with the many activities going on during the festival it has become increasingly difficult for people to be able to partake of the all of the weekend events.

Therefore the members of the River City Street Rods have decided to seperate ourselves from the Band Festival and hold our event on the following weekend in order to give more people an opportunity to participate and enjoy the show.

The show this year will be at the North Iowa Event Center on June 1st, 2019. We will have 4 classes of vehicles - Up to 1959, 1960 to 1969, 1970 to 1979, and 1980 to present. Awards will be given to the top cars in each class. We will have specialty trophies also for Best of Show, Best Paint, Best Engine, Best Interior, Best Custom Paint, Sponsors Choice, and Club Ladies Choice.

Why "River City" Whats in a name?

Mason City, known for its outstanding musical heritage, was the birthplace of Mason City's "favorite son" Meredith Willson. His crowning achievement was the famous musical "The Music Man" . Many of the ideas in the show were taken from personal experiences during his childhood in Mason City. In that show he coined the name of the town as "River City, Iowa"
