Geelong's picturesque waterfront precinct will host the 2017 Geelong Revival Motoring Festival.


But you don't have to be a petrol-head to enjoy this spectacular waterfront event. There'll be classic boats, vintage aircraft, a vintage lifestyle zone with live music, food, entertainment and trade stalls, a vintage caravan display and the National Vintage Fashion Awards.

But the highlight of the weekend will undoubtedly be the vintage vehicles displaying and taking part in an action-packed weekend of events including full-throttle quarter-mile sprints down Ritchie Boulevard by both cars and motorcycles. These sprints have been conducted on this site since 1956 and this year, as many as 300 cars & motorcycles will compete for the prestigious Geelong Revival Motoring Festival Trophy in a wide range of historic classes.
