The Geelong Revival Motoring Festival has joined the long list of automotive events to be cancelled due to COVID-19, with the scrubbing of this year’s motoring festival made official on 3 September.
Event Director Nick Heath expressed his disappointment that the 27-29 November event would not be going ahead, but with the Revival being such an ‘open’ public event and attracting large numbers of entrants and spectators, he said it was the only safe course of action to take under the circumstances.
“It is clear that the ongoing COVID-19 crisis prevents large scale events like ours from occurring. We are extremely disappointed to be making this announcement but unfortunately there are far greater issues facing our community at this time,” Heath said.
The Geelong Revival team will now work with stakeholders and the City of Greater Geelong to host the event next year.
“We look forward to presenting the Geelong Revival Motoring Festival in 2021. We are sure that the community will be ready to get out and enjoy the event and Geelong’s spectacular waterfront when conditions permit,” Heath added.
The Geelong Revival team say they are greatly appreciative of the unwavering support the event has received across the last eight years. Updates on the 2021 event will be provided as they are available.
