The first NUMOA car shows from 1996 until 2000 were held in the Fall at the Valley Fair Mall in West Valley City. In 2001, the Intermountain Mustang & All Ford Stampede, a three day event, was begun in Heber City, Utah. For the past 5 years, the event was held in Park City Utah. In August 2017, The Homestead Resort in Midway, UT was the host and again for the 2018, 2019 and 2020 show. In 2021 and 2022 IMAFS was held art the Junction in Odgen, Utah. In 2023 IMAFS is returning to Heber City, Utah. For more info on the 2023 IMAFS, click here. IMAFS includes a Pony Trails mountain cruise, photo shoot, BBQ, car show, and awards banquet. We’ve had Mustang and Fords, Mustang Monthly, and Mustang Times photojournalists attend IMAFS numerous times. See some of those articles here. This has given several NUMOA members the opportunity to have their cars published in national magazines.
With the success of IMAFS, NUMOA leaders wanted to share our fun. We were accepted to host a 2004 Mustang Club of America National show. It was the first Western US MCA National show in many, many years. Since then MCA has become more popular and more National shows are coming West. In 2012 we hosted a Second MCA national show in St George Utah and hope to host another one in the near future.
