The End of The Road
After thoughtful deliberation from MIDFLORIDA’s Board of Directors and Senior Management, a decision has been made to no longer host the show.
The past several years have seen significant changes that affected the show’s future. The growth of downtown Lakeland, which has continued to improve the city, has changed the footprint available for events. While Lakeland continues to serve as the headquarters for MIDFLORIDA, recent expansion to be nearly statewide has caused the need to deploy resources differently, preventing us from devoting the considerable employee labor required throughout the year to host this event. Additionally, the pandemic continues to cause uncertainty about the future of large-scale events, and shifting weather patterns continue to produce tropical storms and hurricanes late in the year, affecting the show’s success. All of this contributed to our decision to end the show.
It could not have continued to thrive and maintain its reputation for excellence without the dedication and talents of our volunteers and participants. Your contributions are highly valued as the lifeblood in making this event possible, and it could not have happened without you.
Thank you for your 20 years of support, time, and loyalty. We will cherish the many fond memories and friendships made over the years.
About The Show
Come visit us in Lakeland, Florida, and enjoy the MIDFLORIDA Auto Show & Lake Mirror Concours. This wonderful event exhibits hundreds of show vehicles on and surrounding the restored 1920’s art deco-inspired Lake Mirror promenade in downtown Lakeland providing one of the most scenic venues in the country. The event is known for its beautiful lakefront setting and friendly atmosphere. In addition to attracting over 35,000 spectators, the MIDFLORIDA Auto Show & Lake Mirror Concours draws top car collectors from the southeast.
The show, now in its 21st year, has become a source of pride for the City of Lakeland, and MIDFLORIDA Credit Union is especially proud to be the presenting sponsor. Area residents and public officials welcome the opportunity to showcase our beautiful Lake Mirror Park and historic downtown to thousands of visiting car show guests.
Each year, the downtown Lakeland area comes alive with spectators, cars & activities. Join us for the weekend of events during the MIDFLORIDA Auto Show & Lake Mirror Concours, Budweiser Hot Rod Rendezvous, and the Sunday Road Rally.
