Northern Star MCA National Day 3

Show Details

We are expecting to host a great show in the Minneapolis area. The weather in late June should be pleasant without being too hot, or too cold.  The show site is well located to enjoy much of what the Twin Cities has to offer in terms of family activities, shopping, theatre, dining and sporting events.


While some details remain to be finalized, the following activities are planned:


  • Show field of about 425 registered cars

  • A Friday night family friendly event consisting of transportation to and from the Mall of America; dinner and activities on your own

  • Saturday night buffet banquet on-site at the DoubleTree Hotel with live music, speaker(s), and entertainment

  • Sunday morning buffet breakfast on-site at the DoubleTree Hotel before the show awards ceremony

  • A number of chain restaurants are within a 5 minute walk of the show site

  • Possible associated local tours depending on availability and interest

The hotel is easy to access at the intersection of interstate highway 494 and Minnesota State highway 100

Emergency ramp parking in case of severe weather will be identified within two miles of the show site.


Please watch this site and the NSNMS Facebook site for updates.
