OUR MISSION

To present the finest display of vintage and classic cars ever assembled in the Commonwealth of Virginia.
Our goal is to raise money from this event to make a significant donation to the UVA Cancer Center.
Support for the Center critical to their efforts in clinical cancer care and cancer research. We can only accomplish
this goal with the generous support of businesses and individuals who are willing to participate in the
Virginia Festival Of The Wheel as sponsors, vendors, advertisers or donors. We'd love to have your support!



The First Annual Virginia Festival of the Wheel will be October 7th 10-3 at the Sprint Pavilion in Charlottesville,
Virginia. 501.C.3 Corporation. All proceeds from this Virginia Car Show are tax deductible and will be donated to
the UVA Cancer Center to assist in the tremendous work that they do in research and for their patients.

The First Annual Virginia Festival of the Wheel will present a collection of 80 of the finest vintage and collectors
cars in the region. We will also have a few fabulous exhibition vehicles including a retired NASCAR vehicle and
an award-winning dragster. We will have food trucks and other vendors to make the day complete. Enjoy a
beautiful autumn Sunday on the Historic and fabulous Downtown Mall and see some of the region's most unique
automobiles ever made. Kids 12 and under, military, first responder's and cancer survivors will be admitted free.

 
 
 
 
The Virginia Festival of the Wheel celebrates the role that the automobile has played in
the progress of our state and the passion that car enthusiasts have for its past to the present. 

The car depicted in our logo is the famous Mormon Meteor III, which set the closed course world land
speed record at Bonneville in 1936 at 164 mph. The car was powered by a Curtiss V-12 aircraft
engine which produced 750 h.p. and was built by Ab Jenkins and Augie Duesenberg and driven by Jenkins.
His son Marv restored the car in 2000 and was the subject of a documentary film, “The Boys of Bonneville”.
