2021 Motorfest

Motorfest is an annual program of motoring events that coincide with the Bay to Birdwood. Motorfest showcases some of the best of South Australia’s motoring culture and provides unique entertainment and fellowship for motoring enthusiasts from around Australia and the world. Organised by some of South Australia’s great historic vehicle clubs, Motorfest events are a fantastic way for local and interstate Bay to Birdwood entrants to further explore South Australia together.

Unlike the Bay to Birdwood, the events are open to any type of vehicle. The 2021 Motorfest Classic program can be viewed here, or click here for a registration form.


We were saddened to learn of the recent passing of one of our Bay to Birdwood Concours d’Elegance judges, John Virgo. John was one of the most prominent figures in the Concours judging scene in Australia. In addition to his role at the Bay to Birdwood, John was also Chief Judge at Motorclassica.

John had been a long time judge for the Rolls Royce Owners Club of Australia and had honed his eye for detail over the course of many events. We extend our sincere condolences to the Virgo family. The Director of Judges, Lucinda Osborne, would like to express her thanks to John for his kindness, support and technical expertise over the last few years. He will be sadly missed in our motoring enthusiast community.
