We would like to share some facts and figures from this year’s show: There were 1,629 registered vehicles this year. Approximately 21,100 people attended Moparfest over the weekend. The funds raised went to 16 different Youth Work and Community Groups, all of which are non-profit groups and organizations. A record amount of funds, reaching $162,970.00 went to these groups. We have now donated a total of $2.76 Million dollars back to the local community.
We attribute the fantastic attendance to the die hard Mopar lovers, and the excellent weather on Sunday.
John Petrie, Canada’s “MR. MOPAR” will be attending Moparfest on the weekend of August 15th and 16th of 2015.
John has been nominated for entry into the Prestigious Canadian Motorsport Hall of Fame for 2015. John will be bringing with him his original Super Car Clinic Team from “Out of the Past”. We are fortunate to have the opportunity of seeing the only remaining North American Chrysler Super Car Clinic Team from the Golden Years of Drag Racing 1969-1972.
Come out and show your support for a true Canadian Pioneer in the Canadian Drag Racing Industry. John is looking forward to meeting everybody during his reunion with all his MOPAR friends. As a special bonus for this event, John and his racing team will present a full blown John Petrie Super Car Clinic from the early 70’s for all to enjoy.

We WILL NOT allow any animals on the grounds for the weekend of Moparfest
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.
