The 2018 Magic Dragon Street Meet Nationals Are This Weekend On The Bagnell Dam Strip

There is a big annual event at the Lake of the Ozarks taking place this weekend just a short trip up the road from JB Hook's. The 30th Annual Magic Dragon Street Meet Nationals car show is taking place Friday-Sunday, May 4-6, on the historic Bagnell Dam Strip. It's always quite a sight to see, and when you need a break from being outside, head on over to our lake view seafood & steak restaurant at the Lake of the Ozarks for a bite to eat and a refreshing drink.

2018 Magic Dragon Street Meet Nationals
This great big event is a unique car show for all makes, models, and years of cars, trucks, and motorcycles. The Bagnell Dam Strip will be closed to through traffic and those magnificent vehicles will fill the streets for your viewing pleasure. Without modern-day cars driving back and forth, you get a nostalgic trip back in time in a setting that looks as if it's straight out of the set of "American Graffiti."  

Over 1,000 vehicles were on display last year, and close to 10,000 people took part in this incredible event. Admission is free, which is an amazing "price" for an exciting day the entire family can enjoy. This year they have added the Big Foot Monster Truck Car Crushing Demonstration on Saturday, May 5, at 2 pm in Firestone Alley next to Two-Bit-Town. This is also the only car show that gives away a brand new muscle car to one lucky winner!

Take a Break at JB Hook's
The car show is going on all weekend long, and that's a lot of walking! When you're ready to get off of your feet for a while and take a break, make your way on over to our Lake of the Ozarks bar & restaurant. We serve a fantastic lunch menu from 11 am-4 pm daily in the bar, the Sunset Room, and on our outdoor covered patio. Dinner begins nightly at 5 pm, and you can get appetizers and take advantage of our amazing Shrimp & Oyster Bar if you happen to come in between lunch and dinner. 

Our Happy Hour times and days change seasonally, but during the Magic Dragon Street Meet Nationals, you can enjoy our incredible Happy Hour drink specials and savory half-prices appetizers in the bar area on Friday from 3-8 pm, and all day on Sunday! (Those are definitely great times for a break!) 

We also host incredible live music in our bar area from 5:30-8:30 every Monday-Saturday. For car show weekend, we have the talented Drew Stevens performing on Friday and the amazing Al Jolly on stage Saturday.   

The Magic Dragon Car Show is an excellent reason to visit our part of the lake area May 4-6. You can find a schedule for the weekend, as well as additional details, by visiting

Since you'll be on this side of town anyway, plan to spend some of your weekend right here with us at JB Hook's. We're always excited to see familiar faces and meet new friends, and we'll have some extraordinary food and drinks waiting for you when you get here.
