We know that transportation can be a barrier to creating a better life. CarFest aims to bridge the gap by repairing cars for families selected through area non-profits and developing the next generation of automotive professionals to create a diverse and thriving workforce. 

Scheduled for next year, the three-day automotive charity festival will bring unity to the community by honoring automotive brands, repair shops, automotive programs, and car clubs that keep cars alive on the road.

Click here for a complete listing of scheduled events.

Each year in April, CarFest SA unites 25 Auto Repair shops across the greater San Antonio area to give out 10 donated cars and repair 25 cars for charity.

Each year we work hard to make CarFest SA a more charitable and interactive unity in the community event, so if you have visited before, you won’t want to miss it again!

If you have questions or need additional information please feel free to reach out to us by clicking here.
