The 14th Annual Highlands Motoring Festival - June 2021

A friendly event that appeals to everyone.

The focus, of course, is the field of over 75+ high quality invited classic cars. Owners of their collector pieces have gone to considerable effort and expense to put these cars on the show field for all to enjoy. An eclectic field of entries will ensure that there is something for everyone.


A Local Non-Profit Festival

Powered by an all-volunteer group.

Over the years, the net proceeds have gone to many different charities. This year, REACH of Macon County, Literacy Council of Highlands, and the Community. Care Clinic have been selected as the charity partners. Spectator entry to the show field is free, but a contribution to our charities is appreciated.
