About this event
The Greater Washington Section of the Mercedes-Benz Club of America announces the largest assembly of vehicles that carry the three-pointed star ever attempted in the world! We invite you to be a part of this truly momentous occasion as we kick off the 65th anniversary of our section on Sunday, July 17, 2022, at the picturesque and lakeside Occoquan Regional Park in Fairfax County, Virginia. This event is open to all MBCA members nationwide and to any Mercedes-Benz owners who have yet to join. In addition to the fine cars on display, we will have a variety of food trucks selling lunch and an array of vendors, many of whom keep our cars running and looking like new. We're also thrilled to welcome back the very popular and talented Split2nd Band to provide musical entertainment at another GWS event!
Participants are encouraged to bring as many Mercedes-Benz vehicles as possible to display in an attempt to break a world record. While at the event, participants will have their cars photographed professionally, enter a raffle to win a painting of their car, and have a chance to win the original painting made for the event's promotional materials. No formal judging of cars will take place so don't worry about the cosmetic or mechanical condition of your cars!
Proceeds from the event will be donated to Cancer Care at Children's Hospital. If you love Mercedes-Benz cars, then you'll not want to miss this opportunity to see friends and make new ones as we help to benefit an important cause. Let's make the star shine brightly during this milestone!
