It is with great sadness that we must announce today that we have had to make the extremely difficult decision to cancel the 2020 Irish Motor Festival, which was due to take place in Punchestown Racecourse on the weekend of August 29th & 30th, 2020 and would have been the third consecutive year of Ireland’s leading automotive event.
Although the entire Irish Motor Festival team are extremely saddened to have to make this decision, we feel it is the right decision to make at this time in order to ensure that we, as the organisers of the Irish Motor Festival, do all we can to help prevent any further potential spread of COVID-19 on the island of Ireland.
Despite the fact that our event was due to take place right at the end of the Irish government’s roadmap plan to re-open Ireland, the event that our team has been building since the inception of the Irish Motor Festival is one that is all about allowing our attendees to get up close and personal with some of the most amazing cars, attractions, food stall, trade stalls and much more over the course of our 2-day event. For us, this is what the Irish Motor Festival is all about and has become synonymous with, and with social distancing measures more important than ever before for the foreseeable future, we felt that it would be impossible for us to provide you, our amazing and loyal fans and attendees, with a show that was to the same standard as previous years of the Irish Motor Festival.
With all of that said, however, we can now use this additional time to begin building towards bringing you an incredible third instalment of the Irish Motor Festival – one that will be bigger and better than ever before – in the summer of 2021.
Lastly then, we just want to thank you all for your continued support for the Irish Motor Festival to date. We are extremely saddened and sorry to have to make this decision, but rest assured that we cannot wait to welcome you all back to Punchestown Racecourse next year.
Thank you, have a lovely day and stay safe,
The Irish Motor Festival team.
