Global Mustang Week

Have Mustang pride? Heck, do you have a Mustang you want to show off? Mustang owners, it's nearly that time … our second annual Mustang Day Cars & Coffee celebration at Ford World Headquarters will be happening from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Wednesday, April 17, in honor of our icon's 55th anniversary.

If you are interested in displaying your Mustang, please click here to send us an email. (Note: This does not guarantee you a parking spot at the event. Mustang parking will be available on a first-come, first-served basis.)

Don't have a Mustang to show off? No problem, come on by any way to check out the cars and more.

First-ever Mustang Donut Wall

While we cannot do donuts in the World Headquarters parking lot, we can debut our first-ever Mustang Donut Wall. Just like it sounds, hundreds of donuts will fill this wall and outline the legendary Mustang logo. Don't be late, as we expect the yummy goodness to disappear quickly.

GoCheez Food Truck

For those who plan to stop by and need to satisfy that mid-day hunger, GoCheez is returning for a second Mustang Day Cars & Coffee with plenty of lunch options for purchase.

All the fun is taking place in the South Visitor Parking lot at Ford World Headquarters, located at 1 American Road, Dearborn, MI, 48126. Please note bathrooms will be available for use inside the building lobby.

This annual Mustang Day Cars & Coffee event will be held rain or shine and Mustang parking will be available on a first-come, first-served basis. Spaces are limited, so come early to get your spot! Hope to see you at the celebration!

Sincerely,

Ford Retiree Communications
