About the Festival of Motoring

Following the success of this year's Isle of Man Festival of Motoring, we are delighted to confirm that the 2023 event will take place over the weekend of Friday 15th to Sunday 17th September 2023.

Non-Island participants can choose from one of our 3 to 7 night packages including ferry crossings and a great selection of Island hotels and self catering cottages, whilst Island residents can join in the fun by coming out to see the cars during the weekend. We also have a selection of 'Event Only' packages for residents who have a suitable vehicle to allow access to the various runs and festival activities.
