Coventry MotoFest vision
Inspiration Innovation Motivation
MotoFest is not a festival being put on by us for the people of Coventry, rather it is the citizens (both individual and corporate) of Coventry coming together to put on a spectacular festival for the nation.
The ethos of MotoFest is to use Coventry’s heritage to pioneer the city’s future. It is free for the public to attend and is a not for profit event. In essence, we’re trying to make Coventry City Centre the “Edinburgh Festival” of motoring for one weekend a year. The festival is not only a heritage event therefore but also a showcase for what is happening now and in the future: The beating heart of automotive culture.
Coventry Motofest is the catalyst for the public, competitors, manufacturers and suppliers to inspire, motivate and celebrate the global love of the motorised vehicle in all its forms from the City that is still driving change on the world stage.
