The Motorsports Experience
Car Enthusiasts Dream Of

Monterey Motorsports Festival

Offering distinct counterpoints to the standard Monterey County Car Week experience, the inaugural Monterey Motorsports Festival drew more than 4,000 attendees on Saturday, Aug. 17, at the Monterey Fair & Event Center.

The event proved to be such a success that founder Paolo Manca has already announced a return to the Fairgrounds on Saturday, Aug. 17, 2024, from 2-10 p.m.

Showcasing all types of moving technologies — ranging from exotic cars to off-road and hyper-cool, tech-focused equipment and heavy steel — the first-of-its-kind event provided automotive fans with opportunities to roam the grounds, connect with the business world, and enjoy food and entertainment well into the night.

Monterey Motorsports Festival provides eclectic experiences for everyone, from gearheads and tech enthusiasts who love big toys to those who just want to soak up the excitement of revving engines in an engaging, all-inclusive atmosphere.

One ticket, gets you access to the best the car world has to offer, situated on 22 acres of native oak trees, historic buildings, and the green lawns of the Monterey Fairgrounds and Events Center, including:

Throughout the day, participants can mingle with various industry businesses, including car manufactures, dealers, motorcycle stores, electric technology reps, custom and off-road shops and dealers, equipment brands and suppliers. Fans can eavesdrop on interviews, speaking panels and hear compelling business and automotive stories.

Family activities for both adults and children include racing simulators, automotive video games, live PPF installations, live detailing, technology demonstrations, photo booths, photography demos, interactive motorsports-inspired children areas and more

As an organization, we have a keen focus on charity. A portion of the proceeds will be donated to local charitable organizations: Boys and Girls Club, Monterey County Fair Heritage Foundation, Victims of Crime.
