Wow, we’re blow away by the support and turnout for this event. We easily had 90+ cars in the display area at different times, 500+ spectators and we could build a whole another show out of the cool cars in the spectator lot! So many people told us what a great time they had and for our organizers and volunteers that means so much.
As of the writing of this article we’ve passed raising $11,000 and we’re still getting donations and counting funds we received from Saturday!
We’re not sure words can do it justice so we’ve been trying to compile all of the pictures people has sent us, or posted and allowed us to use. We were almost totally overwhelmed by how crowded and popular the event was. We had completely sold out and were on a wait list, and yet we tried to cram cars into every little corner we had in the display space. As anyone left, or couldn’t make it, we filled it with someone.
Still, despite this we could have double the show space! There were literally track cars and Porsche GT3s in the spectator lot. Next year we’ll work on having more show space and additional instruction to get more vehicles in the show.

What Is The Drivers Festival
When we started what has become the drivers festival last year, we knew we wanted to accomplish a few things. First, we wanted to raise money to support the Atlanta Children’s Shelter, one of our favorite charities. Second, we wanted to bring together people who love to do with their cars. Of course, there is a certain irony in the fact that we’ve chosen a brewery parking lot to celebrate doing with our cars. Still, we wanted to capture the best part of every event – the community. Having a beer or talking cars with your fellow enthusiasts. Last, we wanted to help people learn and connect to do more with their cars.
With that, the Drivers Festival was born. This year we added a formal car show, but don’t expect this to be like a typical gathering of cars or car show. This is about having a beer, talking cars and trading war stories. It’s also the perfect opportunity to try something new – try a track day, give endurance or sprint racing a try, do a car control clinic or try off-roading.
Please, continue to support our sponsors. They are a huge reason raise so much money and they help provide so many things so we can focus on raising money.
