MotoFest is an event to be enjoyed as a family. All of our live and static displays are child-safe. (We would recommend you bring ear defenders if the little ones have sensitive ears!) But we also have a range of free activities specially chosen to engage and entertain our younger visitors.
CycleFest at MotoFest
For the first time, CycleFest will be happening during MotoFest weekend. During the day, enjoy a cycling expo with bike riding and smoothie making. As the light fades, bring the family along for a free bicycle ride on the traffic free Ring Road.
Van Wrap Competition
The winner of E.ON Drive’s van wrap competition will be unveiled at MotoFest 2023. Head over to their stand to see the winning entry on display.
Coventry Transport Museum
Coventry Transport Museum are offering free entry for the MotoFest weekend as well as running family friendly activities on Millennium Place. Keep an eye out for their original Barbie car complete with special passengers on the Sprint Circuit!

Parks and play areas
There are several parks and play areas across the city where you can rest and the kids can play! Why not check out the newest play area by Methodist Central Hall in the heart of MotoFest? Or Naul’s Mill Underpark (which has a climbing wall) or Coventry University’s Starley Gardens?
Get the kids creative minds going with face painting on Greyfriars Green.
