Classic Cars Show on the Bay Foreshore

It is uncommon to see classic, modern, performance, European and domestic vehicles at the one event.

The Geelong Revival Motoring Festival has united the automotive community by inviting all kinds of vehicles to be included in the annual Classic Motorshow.

The 2017 Geelong Revival Motoring Festival took place on Friday 24th, Saturday 25th and Sunday 26th of November 2017. This action packed motoring festival, held on Geelong’s picturesque waterfront, was an event not to be missed!

Take your shady position under many palm and other trees on the lush grassy slopes of the higher advantage points in safety for the historic quarter-mile sprints, as 300 classic and exotic cars and motorcycles sprint down Ritchie Boulevard at full throttle. Join us in the park for the Revival Hillclimb!

The Geelong Waterfront was covered with 100’s of quirky, valuable and fascinating vehicles that are guaranteed to please anyone with an appreciation for classic and unique vehicles.

Celebrations were kicked off  with the Friday Night Cruise, featuring over 600 vehicles, in preparation for a huge weekend of motorsport.
If cars and motorcycles aren’t enough to get you excited, classic boats and vintage aircraft will also be on display, so make sure you look to the seas and sky! Take a step back in time into our vintage lifestyle zone featuring live music, trade stalls, delicious food and entertainment.



Again kicking off a huge weekend of motoring, the City Cruise will see a collection of unique cars and bikes. Spectators will have the opportunity to see the enormous collection of exotic vehicles parade their way through the streets of the Geelong waterfront on the Friday evening, finishing up in the waterfront precinct for a casual celebration. This wonderful new addition to the schedule will showcase the entire event, including a variety of vintage and contemporary cars, live music and fashion.
