The Oregon Festival of Cars has been a hugely successful event, recognized by many as their favorite car event of the year. The opportunity came to take it to a higher level, and we just couldn't say no. In 2013 the Oregon Festival of Cars was first held at the beautiful Broken Top Club golf course in Bend. 2018 finds us in a fun new location: Deschutes Historical Museum, 129 NW Idaho, between Bond and Wall at the south end of downtown Bend.
Our Unique Atmosphere
Started 23 years ago as the Sunriver Exotic Car Show, this has become a must-do annual event for an increasing number of car enthusiasts. Hundreds of enthusiast cars are expected to participate in this fantastic event. During its 23-year history, this event has developed a unique atmosphere of being relaxed and fun with participants being able to get to know other like-minded enthusiasts.
Every element of the Festival is geared toward fun and designed to keep competitive energies in check, allowing just enough to make things interesting but still safe and enjoyable.
The Festival Car Show
Imagine your car parked on the lush green grass of the driving range, along with the other fantastic cars attending the event. All marques are invited to attend this laid back, no Q-tips required car show. So wash and wax your special car or go crazy detailing it, your choice. If your car needs a little sprucing up, there will be car wash area Friday afternoon at Mount Bachelor Village Resort.
The 2017 Festival is featuring BADASS cars. Rain or shine!
Emcees are Paul Duchene and Mark Scholz.

Friday Night No-host Registration Reception
We'll be kicking off the whole shebang with a registration and welcome reception Friday evening at Porsche Dealer Showroom.
The Festival Banquet
Enjoy a fun-filled evening at the Broken Top Club, designed to let you mingle with all your old friends, newly acquired friends and just like-minded car enthusiasts. Please note, get your registrations in early, as we have to limit our head count to 135.
The Sunday Dash
Sunday brings us the infamous Sunday Dash, a two-hour-or-so romp through the Central Oregon countryside on interesting, lightly traveled roads. It's the perfect opportunity to stretch your car's legs, but participation is limited to avoid traffic jams, so register early. More info to be announced. The Sunday Dash and weekend end up with a grand finale lunch, destination to be announced, but sponsored by Tim Morris of German Master Tech. Then you're on your own to find your way home. We guarantee the topic of discussion will be doing this again next year.
The Festival has regularly provided substantial support to Central Oregon charities. Our 2017 beneficiary is The Humane Society of Central Oregon. All donated proceeds help care for the surrendered, abandoned, neglected, and abused animals at the shelter.
