Festival of Motoring Johannesburg

Welcome to the biggest motoring extravaganza in South Africa. Event goers can expect even more motorsport content, track time, self-drives and participating automotive manufacturers.

The Festival of Motoring is not your average motoring event. It’s the one event that brings the entire industry together and allows visitors to not only view or compare the latest models, but to jump in and experience the performance and handling of these vehicles on the track.

Festival of Motoring provides world class motoring and motorsport content to appeal to the many “petrolheads’ with the show having a strong family appeal.

The Show draws a large base of motoring enthusiasts with the provision of a substantial platform for the industry to showcase new models and the latest technical innovations.

Smell, feel, touch and experience all the leading manufactures with this unique and interactive event.

Festival of Motoring Johannesburg postponed to 2021   

Messe Frankfurt South Africa has made the decision to postpone the Festival of Motoring to August 2021. The Festival of Motoring presented by WesBank is the largest automotive show on the African continent and the only national industry supported event endorsed by the National Association of Automobile Manufacturers of South Africa (NAAMSA).

“In light of the ongoing uncertainty around COVID-19 and its impact on the industry and the economy at large, we thought it in the best interest of all stakeholders that we postpone the event to 2021” says Joshua Low, Managing Director of Messe Frankfurt SA.
