Inaugural Daylesford Motorfest in February
OLLING on from the success of Daylesford Cars and Coffee, the organising committee is now working on the inaugural Daylesford Motorfest to be held on Sunday, February 17, 2019.
The Motorfest, like Cars and Coffee, will be open to all makes and models of collectable vehicles spanning over the last 100 or more years with more than 1000 cars, motorcycles, trucks, tractors, and anything else with wheels expected on the day. There will also be live demonstrations, food and trade stalls, best dressed competitions, rock ’n’ roll dance displays, live music and specialty vehicles on display. The event promises to be a fabulous addition to Daylesford’s event calendar with vehicles coming from far and wide, not only for the day but for the entire weekend. There will be entertainment around the town on the Saturday night and a courtesy shuttle bus running from the venue at Victoria Park into Vincent Street on the day. The participation and support from the local community is an integral part of the event planning and the committee is working with Daylesford and Hepburn football clubs, Hepburn Shire Council, CFA, SES, and many others to make the inaugural Motorfest spectacular. Profits from the Motorfest will be donated to local causes and charities. The benefit of the donations to the community is behind the event, particularly after Cars and Coffee raised enough funds for a dialysis chair at the Daylesford Hospital.
