Geelong Revival Motoring Festival

This action packed motoring festival, held on Geelong’s picturesque waterfront, is an event not to be missed!

Take pole position for the historic quarter-mile sprints, as 300 classic and exotic cars and motorcycles sprint down Ritchie Boulevard at full throttle. See the huge motorshow, exhibits, entertainment, food trucks, personalities and more over 3 action packed days.

The Geelong Waterfront will be covered with over 600 quirky, valuable and fascinating vehicles that are guaranteed to please anyone with an appreciation for unique vehicles. We kick off celebrations with the Friday Night Cruise, featuring over 300 vehicles, as we prepare for a huge weekend of motoring lifestyle.

If cars and motorcycles aren’t enough to get you excited, classic boats and vintage trucks and 4WD's will also be on display, so make sure you look around! Take a step back in time into our vintage lifestyle zone featuring live music, trade stalls, delicious food and entertainment. The lifestyle zone wouldn’t be complete without our Vintage Caravan Display and of course the National Vintage Fashion Awards at the Yacht Club, a crowd favourite! Motoring enthusiasts can top off their weekend in our trade expo zone, featuring great displays, sales and unique demonstrations.

The Geelong Revival Motoring Festival is the ideal way to spend a day out with the whole family and this year’s event is going to be a memorable one! We can’t wait to see you all there for some good, old-fashioned fun!

General Focus
Geelong Revival Motoring Festival is back in 2020 with over 300 vehicles competing for the Quarter Mile Sprint title and a further 500 classic and vintage cars on display! The mecca for everything vintage, the festival is home to the National Vintage Fashion Awards, live music, delicious food and trade stalls that are sure to provide fun for the whole family. Situated along Geelong’s picturesque waterfront, the Geelong Revival Motoring Festival is a must-do event for car enthusiasts and lovers of nostalgia alike!

Muscle Car Focus
This year we’re focusing on the boldest, toughest machines from the golden era of Australian and American muscle. Relive the rivalry of the Big 3 muscle cars from Bathurst’s past, including the 1973 Holden Torana driven by racing royalty Peter Brock and pushed into the pits at the Bathurst 1000 of the same year! Experience all this classic muscle and more at this year’s Geelong Revival Motoring Festival!

Demo Track
Back by popular demand is the Demo Track, giving car lovers a chance to experience heart-racing performance driving on a purpose-built track.

Mini/Nagari Anniversaries
2019 marks the anniversary of the birth of various much-loved cars and these anniversaries will be celebrated in style at the Geelong Revival Motoring Festival! Classic muscle will compete for attention with a fleet of Minis as the 60th Anniversary of the iconic car is honoured. Arguably Australia’s greatest homegrown sports car – The Bolwell Nagari – will also make an appearance marking the 50th anniversary of its inception!

40 Years of Mad Max
The culmination of celebrations for the 40th anniversary of Mad Max will be taking place at the event, featuring the iconic Interceptor and Pursuit Special vehicles. In addition, visitors will get a chance to interact with characters from the film and delve deeper into this treasured piece of Australian cinematic and motoring history.

French Car Show
For those with a penchant for European design, the French Car spectacular is likely to grab attention, celebrating the some of the most elegant, innovative and downright quirky cars to ever exist. See these French beauties on display in the Shannons Classic Motorshow.
