The festival's family-friendly atmosphere will be in full swing from November 24-26 along Geelong's Waterfront.

EXCITEMENT is building for the coming Geelong Revival Motoring Festival, returning to the Geelong Waterfront from November 24-26.

This year, the festival brings a list of new attractions along with the traditional favourites fans know and love.

Headlining the historic Quarter Mile Sprints will be father-daughter duo, Chris and Alicia Dalton. The well-known Geelong local will be racing against his own daughter for the first time, as she makes her racing debut at Geelong Revival in her prized 1979 Mazda RX-7.

While the Quarter Mile Sprints remain a fan favourite, this year’s festival will treat attendees to a range of new attractions and performances.

Midday racing entertainment includes a Retro Go Karting display where drivers will navigate a challenging 1/8-mile slalom course along with thrilling motorcycle stunt displays.

Beyond the racetrack, this year’s festival continues to deliver an array of new experiences.

Geelong Revival will take to the skies with multiple flybys from the RAAF 100 Squadron, showcasing historic military aviation aircraft above Geelong’s picturesque waterfront.

But that’s not all – Revival will proudly host a range of operational military vehicles on display, posing a rare opportunity for attendees to observe these machines up close.

A huge showcase from notable emergency services, including the CFA, Victoria Police, Ambulance Victoria, and the SES will offer insights into their invaluable roles and allow festivalgoers the chance to engage with these community heroes.

“The addition of these new attractions brings an exciting dimension to the festival, providing a range of unforgettable experiences for the whole family,” Geelong Revival Motoring Festival event director Nicholas Heath said.

“It’s not just about speed and heritage; it’s about creating lasting memories and honouring the diverse facets of our motoring community.”

The festival’s family-friendly atmosphere will be in full swing from November 24-26 along Geelong’s Waterfront.
