Foxtoberfest 2020

Foxtoberfest 2020

The best foxbody show in the country will be held this year in October in North Carolina - again!  Here’s the information direct from Fox Mustang Restoration.  Visit their site for any updates.     

When: Saturday, October 24th 2020

Where: Concord Mills Mall, 8111 Concord Mills Blvd., Concord, NC 28027


Spectators: FREE!
Car Show Participants: $25 Onsite Registration Available
VIP Car Show: $200




Foxtoberfest will host over 400 Fox-Body Mustangs in 2020!

Foxtoberfest is not your traditional car show.  All Fox-Bodies, regardless of their restoration stage, are welcome. 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. There’s 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".  There will be an All-Fox Swap Meet, too, so bring your cash because you are sure to find some treasures out there!  There will also be a section for Foxes For Sale, so maybe bring a stack of cash?!?!  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!

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, 2 parking spaces per 1 Fox in a premium location, 2 wristbands for VIP tent with catered lunch, 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.

Fox Hunt: The Fox Hunt is a self-guided driving event in the form of a poker run. You will receive list of locations to visit where you will be given a poker card on Thursday, October 22 & Friday, October 23. Collect enough cards to form a poker hand and you'll be entered to win some awesome prizes including a 2021 Foxtoberfest VIP Experience. The Fox Hunt will run Thursday and Friday and prizes will be awarded at the Foxtoberfest awards ceremony on Saturday. Anyone can participate (Age 18+), you do not have to be the driver, multiple people in the same car can play. If you purchase the Fox Hunt full details will be mailed to you prior to the event.

Can I pay at the gate?  Yes! Early registration ends Sunday, September 29 at 11:30pm, but you can register at the show! The cost is $25 for car show or $65 for swap meet or to sell your Fox, please bring cash. The Foxtoberfest VIP Experience will be available at the show if it is not sold out during the pre-sale; the on-site cost is $200 and does not include the VIP jacket.

If I pre-registered do I have to bring my printed ticket to the event?  No, the only thing you need to bring is the window sticker that was mailed to you.

What if my Fox isn't good enough for the show, but I still want to bring it?  EVERY FOX IS SHOW-WORTHY! Our show welcomes Foxes at every restoration stage! We even have a trophy for "Best Daily Driver". All non-registered cars will be parked in spectator parking ($5 charge), but we hate to see Foxes over there. The $15 pre-registration gets you in the middle of the action and parked next to other Foxes and it'll be in the photos!

Is there a fee for spectators?  Spectator parking is $5 per vehicle, paid at the gate, please bring cash. There is no per-person charge. There is no charge for tow vehicles used for paid show cars.

Is truck & trailer parking available?  Yes, we have an additional off-site lot for trucks & trailers. There is no fee for parking in this lot. It's the Lane Street Baptist Church, 2532 Lane Street, Kannapolis, NC 28083 and it's 1.1 miles from the show field. We will have a parking attendant in this lot from 6-9am and then an officer patroling the area until 5pm.

Will food be available?  Yes, food is available for purchase from several food trucks.

Can I bring a Mustang to Foxtoberfest that's not a Fox-Body?  Yes, you are welcome to bring other year Mustangs, but you will be parked in spectator parking at a $5 charge. Only Fox-Bodies will be allowed on the show field.

Can I bring a non-Mustang Fox to Foxtoberfest?  Yes, any registered car that sits on a fox chassis will be allowed in the show. In fact, we even have a trophy category for non-Mustang Foxes!

What's the refund policy?  The event is rain or shine. No refunds will be given.

Is the event family friendly?  Yes, children are welcome and there will be a playground available.

Will there be a Swap Meet?  Yes! We had a great turn-out for Swap Meet vendors last year and expect an even bigger turn out this year. This is an awesome opportunity to show your parts to 2,500 Fox fans, so clean out your garages and get to selling! Space is limited, register early to secure one. The All-Fox Swap Meet will be on both Friday & Saturday!

How big are the swap meet spaces?  The swap meet spaces are 10'x20' and will be in a grassy area. You may pop a staked tent in this area. If you would like to have a vehicle parked at your swap meet space you will need to buy two spaces.

What can be sold at the swap meet?  We ask that the majority of your parts are Fox-Body. Any USED Fox-Body parts are allowed in the swap meet area. New parts (except New Old Stock parts), accessories (t-shirts, hats, etc), food or drink may NOT be sold.
