Foxtoberfest will host over 400 Fox-Body Mustangs in 2019!
Foxtoberfest is not your traditional car show; we welcome all Fox-Bodies regardless of their restoration stage. You'll see beautiful low-mileage show cars right next to multi-colored projects and that's the way we like it! This is a feel-good, cruise-in type show where Fox fans can come together and experience a sense of community. Last year, even with Hurricane Michael blowing through two days prior, we hosted 416 Foxes and we are hoping to break 500 this year! The show features a popular vote format where registered show participants decide who receives the coveted trophies for classes like "1987-93 Best Original" as well as the give-aways like "Most In Need of Upholstery". We have an All-Fox Swap Meet that will happen on Friday night AND Saturday! Bring your cash because you are sure to find some treasures out there! We will also have a section for Foxes For Sale on Friday night and Saturday too, so maybe bring a little extra cash, wink wink. Fox-Body parts, new and used, will be available for sale at the event as well as a huge stock of Mustang and Ford logo accessories like hats, shirts, belts, dog collars, you name it! Don't forget to get your limited edition Foxtoberfest event t-shirts! The address for the car show is Intimidators Stadium, 2888 Moose Rd, Kannapolis, NC 28083.
Foxtoberfest VIP Experience: Want to experience Foxtoberfest in style? Our VIP Experience gets you right in the middle of the action and leaves everyone else wishing they were you! Included in this package is a VIP decal, Kick-Off Party overnight parking (you may leave your car parked in your VIP space Friday night, we will have Kannopolis Police on site), early Saturday parking (6:00am), 2 parking spaces per 1 Fox in a premium location, 2 wristbands for VIP tent with catered lunch, 2 beer tickets, a Foxtoberfest decal and one limited-edition commemorative jacket only available to VIPs. VIPs also have the option to purchase one additional jacket at least 4 weeks prior to the event, but no VIP jackets will be sold at the show or without the purchase of a VIP experience. We will contact you for sizing. Only 40 VIP Experiences available.
