Thousands of Mopar collectors and drivers gather in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina each year for the annual Mopars at the Beach events. The 2019 dates are set for June 18-23 at many locations around the Grand Strand. Mopar Week is sponsored by Coastal Carolina Mopars whose profits benefit three separate charities – Quilts of Valor, Teach My People and the Lowcountry Food Bank.
Rides, charity events and car shows are planned throughout Mopar Week Myrtle Beach that are open to the public. Prizes will be awarded for Top 25 Modern cars, Top 10 Classics, Best in Show and more. Pre-registration is available for participants.
What is a Mopar?
The term “Mopars” was first used by Chrysler in the 1920s and is now used to describe nearly all car models from Dodge, Chrysler, Plymouth, Imperial, Ram and many others. During the Mopars at the Beach events you can expect to see many makes and models perfectly maintained and customized so that no two are exactly alike.
