Foxtoberfest will host over 500 Fox-Body Mustangs in 2018!
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 we hosted 466 Foxes and we are sure to break 500 this year! The show features a popular vote format where every registered show participant gets a ballot and decides who receives the coveted trophies for classes like "1987-93 Best Original" as well as the give-aways donated from our sponsons like "Most In Need of Upholstery". Last year's All-Fox Swap Meet was a big hit and we're bringing it back full force! Bring your cash because you are sure to find some treasures out there! 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.
