Steam to the
2019 Geelong Revival Motoring Festival
Sunday 24 November

Book your tickets here.
The Geelong Revival Motoring Festival is a celebration of Geelong's motoring history. First run in 1956, the Geelong Sprints were modelled from the Brighton UK speed trials. The program at the Geelong Revival Motor Festival is huge, with lots to see and do for the whole family. The Sunday event traditionally showcases more vintage vehicles. Enjoy the Demo Track at Transvaal Square, Motorcycle Mecca at Customs Lawn, the Revival Motor Expo at Eastern Beach Reserve and Pit Access at The Pits.
Don't miss out on the 12.30 pm Quarter Mile Sprints, an event that is a highlight of the festival.
For the ladies, there is The National Vintage Fashion Awards from 12.00 pm at the Royal Geelong Yacht Club.
