The name says it all…what better place to be in the middle of June than in the cool, crisp Blue Ridge Mountains at an altitude of 4118 feet? The Highlands Motoring Festival has been recognized as THE motoring festival event in June in the Southeast. Enjoy the mountain town with a casual and sophisticated atmosphere and cool climate. Improve your Attitude by improving your Altitude (4118 ft).
The focus, of course, is the field of over 125 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.
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.
Dennis Gage will be filming an episode of his TV show My Classic Car at the 2019 HMF. The show is in its 24th season and has been viewed worldwide by tens of millions of households on various automotive oriented networks.
To better accommodate all our mountain driver friends, in 2018 the Highlands Motoring Festival published “One Lap of the Mountains, Exciting Drives for Car Enthusiasts”, a route guide of mountain drives suitable for all interests.
