We would like to share some facts and figures from 2016’s show:
There were 1,550 registered vehicles. Approximately 18,000 people attended Moparfest over the weekend. The funds raised went to 14 different Youth Work and Community Groups, all of which are non-profit groups and organizations. This year a huge amount of funds, thank you for your continued support of our event and this community!

We have now donated a total of $2.76 Million dollars back to the local community.
We attribute the fantastic attendance to the diehard Mopar lovers, and the excellent weather. Thank you everyone for your support!

Regarding the newer vehicles: Due to space and parking issues we have put into place a new car policy effective May 1st 2013.
please read more

All new cars, trucks etc. (year 2000 and newer) must be preregistered.
We are limiting the number of new vehicles to a maximum of 200.
Do not show up with a new vehicle without pre registering in advance.

Please take note:
We WILL NOT allow any animals on the grounds for the weekend of Moparfest
SERVICE ANIMALS are the only exception to this rule

This was written by one of our volunteers who had to get rabies shots right after Moparfest 2011. He was directing traffic out on the road for us. 
"This was an attempt at having me for lunch yesterday for a lovely chocolate Lab dog at Peel and Bleams.
Completely unprovoked as I was holding traffic back so the owners could cross Peel Street.
Two people, walking two dogs on leashes. One came around the back of the other and just jumped and grabbed! 
I expect it didn't like my safety vest - tore it right off and put a hole in my committee member shirt too!
If this isn't enough of a reason to keep dogs away, just imagine if it were a child!!
It always surprises me the arguments and grunting we get from people that want to bring dogs to the event - not just ours, but any event of this size and intensity! Don't ever give in to letting dogs attend."
Please do not waste your money. If you bring an animal you will be asked to leave immediately.
