Thunder on the Mountain | Eureka Springs 2024

This cover picture is deceiving because Thunder on the Mountain is not dark and stormy.

In fact Thunder on the Mountain is where the spirit of adventure meets the rhythm of the Ozarks. Set amidst the scenic beauty of our little hamlet here in Eureka Springs, Arkansas, Thunder on the Mountain is a true-blue celebration of autos, music, and community.

Let's delve into what makes Thunder on the Mountain an unmissable experience and explore the captivating line-up awaiting us in 2024.

OK, Folks! Mark your calendars for the largest and longest running all Ford & Mustang event in the State of Arkansas. That's right, this years' 2024 Thunder on the Mountain Event will take place from May 31st - June 2nd, 2024 in Eureka Springs, AR.

As always, Mustangs of every model, every year, customized, stock and whatever else Mustang owners can do to a Mustang to make it unique, will be showcased. Note: Even though this is advertised as a Mustang event, any Ford, Lincoln, Mercury, Saleen, Roush, or Shelby product will also be eligible to participate.

Organizers have planned a jam-packed weekend of different activities bringing in some rhythms of a killer, energized auto-rally juxtaposed against the serene, majesty of the Ozarks. No better place for this to occur than our own Eureka Springs, Arkansas.

Eureka Springs provides the perfect backdrop for this extraordinary event because our quaint streets are lined with Victorian-era homes against lush hillsides and serene lakes. Eureka Springs enchants visitors with its timeless charm and what's better to accompany timeless charm? Antique Fords and Mustangs!

While the auto show itself will be at Pine Mountain Village, 2075 E Van Buren, Eureka Springs, AR from 8:00am-3:00pm on June 1st, there will be different activities all weekend long ranging from road rallies, cruise in, car show, cruise-to-a-parade and more.
