Saturday and Sunday include FREE Vehicles given away every 2 hours to the general public! Drawings for a total of 10 free vehicles to be given away to lucky Carfest attendees who must be present to win.

Kids’ events and activity area, How-To Clinics, Retail Shopping, and live music and entertainment throughout the event. An IBCA sanctioned BBQ Cook-Off Competition awarding the “Best of” categories for brisket, pork spare ribs, and chicken, plus a Chili-Cook-off!

Coming back this year for ages 15-17 in 2020, the CarFest New Driver’s Workshop! Teens get to learn some basic car knowledge, use the distracted driving simulators and play New Driver Jeopardy! Every teen that attends this workshop will get a chance to win a free vehicle!

During Carfest, some of San Antonio’s top automotive repair facilities volunteer their time to repair 25 vehicles for preselected car repair recipients nominated through regional charitable organizations. Working alongside the professionals, automotive students from local schools will learn job-related skills and gain hands-on experience.

So far, CarFest has given away nearly a million dollars in car repairs, giveaway vehicles and money to trade schools!
