We are keeping this flea market separate from the vendor field.
We are also keeping the automotive and non-automotive vendors separate.
We are always a car show first, that’s our main focus

Christmas ideas

We need some help…

We are in search of a select few years of Wellington Motors Plaques – (NOT Moparfest ones!) We are looking for dash plaques from the annual Saturday evening Wellington Motors cruise night that happens during the Moparfest weekend.
The years that we are looking for are: 1986, 1987, 1988, 1998, 2002
If you have any of these years of plaques that you are willing to part with, please send an email to: and let us know you are able to help with the search!

Why no prize car for 2019?

As a committee, we decided to try giving away a cash prize this year. Here are a few reasons why: the cost of buying an old Mopar, repairing and maintaining it, gas and all the time involved is getting higher and higher.
We also find that most people who win a Moparfest prize car end up selling it within a few years. So we thought we would try something new.
Plus – who couldn’t use $15,000?
Same rules apply as before when we had the prize cars – you must pre-register your 1994 or older Mopar before July 1st, 2019. You and your registered vehicle must be present to win.

A huge thank you to the volunteers, committee members, sponsors, vendors, participants, spectators and everyone who participated in Moparfest 2017 for helping to make it one of our most successful years to date! We hope to see all of you back in 2018 for our 39th year of Moparfest!

Moparfest has a strict no pet policy. Only working service animals will be allowed onto the show grounds. Otherwise, you will be asked to leave if you are seen with an animal on the field. No refunds will be issued. We also have ZERO tolerance for animals left in, or tied to vehicles.
