EVENTS CALENDAR


SAMC hosts multiple events each month.   Also, as a group, we participate in local car shows and events like Little Anthony’s Diner, Tucson Police Foundation's Cops and Rodders, as well as benefit events for local schools and charities.

Members can participate in an event almost every weekend.  

Listed below is a summary of a few of the Club’s activities.  

Be sure to check out our Facebook pages for more information.


SAMC Monthly Member Meetings – meetings are the third Tuesday of every month (except Devember), at 7:00pm. Meeting place is Holmes Tuttle Ford, Meeting Room, Upstairs on the east side of the building – 660 W Automall Drive, Tucson, AZ 85705


1st Saturday Cruise - SAMC hosts a cruise on the first Saturday of each month. Sometimes we have more Mustangs at this event than we do our monthly meetings.    A member plans a cruise route, we meet at a specific location, and away we go.   We might cruise up a hill to stop and see the city lights, stop somewhere and learn about Tucson’s history, maybe ride the Trolley, or tour the old train station, or even observe the stars at the observatory.   

The cruise options are endless.   We almost always end up somewhere for an ice cream or coffee.  

Fords on Fourth – The all Ford car show is an exhilarating experience for the Mustang owner.    Hundreds and hundreds of Ford’s, all years, lined up row after row.   SAMC is currently working on the 2018 all Ford show to be held Sunday, March 11, 2018 between 9 am and 3 pm. The show is once again being held in the historic 4th Avenue District of downtown Tucson.   The fabulous 4th Avenue District offers many restaurants and shops for fun dining and shopping with all of the beautiful Fords providing a colorful setting on the street.   Hotel information for out of town entrants will be available as well as lists of interesting and historic sites in the Tucson area.

Come and celebrate the early spring season in one of Tucson’s most historic and beautiful locations.    The 2018 show will be a benefit for two local charities in the Tucson area.    SAMC invites everyone to enjoy this special show with us.   It's a  great time and place to celebrate all Ford vehicles.
Rallye del ano Nuevo -  is SAMC’s oldest event that began in 1966. It started as a formal Rallye with very strict rules (stop watches and clip boards were standard equipment), spread out over a few days.    However, over the years things have lightened up and now it is a very relaxing, enjoyable variety of driving events.    Some of the club’s favorite rallies and tours have been to Tombstone and Bisbee.    A couple of times, SAMC used Rallye del ano Nuevo for a Wine Tour to Arizona’s wine country in Sonoita. 
The Great Pumpkin - is SAMC’s second oldest event, that has gone full circle from a rallye to a huge car show to a Halloween Party.   The first Pumpkin was held on November 1, 1967 and was a gimmick rallye.    How could it be anything else when all the participants were dressed in Halloween Costumes?   The first rallye was at night and SAMC watched for The Great Pumpkin to rise from the Pumpkin Patch at a party following the rallye.   This event is everyone’s favorite because there is no pressure unless you are competing to win the Best Costume!
Mustangs By The Bay –  many SAMC members participate in this annual car show Sponsored by the Mustang Club of San Diego.  It is their premier car show held at the Embarcadero Marina Park North next to Seaport Village on the beautiful San Diego Bay.
