Following the announcement on Monday 14th June regarding Covid restrictions, we have been working hard on how best to deliver this Summer’s CarFests.
Along with several major festival organisers, we have taken the decision to proceed with CarFest North based on the government’s plan regarding July 19th. We are therefore putting all of our resource and effort into ensuring that both CarFest North and South proceed as planned.
With the scale of resource and complexity required to keep our shows on the road, we have decided that undertaking our planned new launch, Retro CarFest is a step too far. We have regrettably taken the difficult decision to cancel Retro CarFest for this year.
We will be incorporating some of the best music and show features that were planned for Retro CarFest and adding them to CarFest North and South. So, you will still have the option of getting into the Retro spirit with us by swapping your tickets.
We hope that ticket holders for Retro CarFest will join us at either CarFest North or South by swapping tickets, but if you are unable to do so, then we will refund your tickets. Full details of the options will be mailed to ticketholders next week.
We apologise for any disappointment.

Packed to the brim with activities for every member of the family, this year’s CarFest festivals promise family fun, with the best music, the fastest and loudest cars, and the brightest stars!

To celebrate our birthday, we’ll be bringing together the best music, the fastest cars and the brightest stars to celebrate with you.
Over the past nine years, CarFest has raised over £16 million for UK Children’s charities and we’re on a mission to continue raising funds for them in 2021. This has been a challenging year for everyone, but especially for charities as they continue to support some of the most vulnerable people in society.
We are proud to be supporting

‘ I love CarFest because it is a TRUE family event. A real opportunity to go analogue, switch off from the "real world" and make precious memories. It brings everyone together and you get to support some amazing, special charities. Chris Evans and the team see the good in the world and it is reflected in Carfest’
‘We love Carfest, because every year, rain or shine, it’s enabled us to create the most amazingly special memories with family and friends’
‘I love CarFest because it was one of the "feel the fear and do it anyway" moments after completing treatment for cancer.’
‘I (we) love CarFest because of the family feel! There’s something for everyone. Music, cars, food, camping, more cars, fairs, more food, silent discos and the excuse to be silly! Everyone’s polite, kind, caring and in a good mood’
