What To Expect At Summernats

Summernats is set on 70 hectares of land in Australia's capital city, Canberra, and attracts nearly 85,000 festival goers each year. There are numerous car exhibits, retailers, demonstrations, and events that embrace the thrills and excitement of high octane cars.


The first day of Summernats is filled with activities that are designed to kick off the grand event and prepare festival goers for the fast paced action and events ahead. Festival goers can enjoy the first night of tyre burning as competitors prepare for the competition ahead, or sit back and relax as they catch a movie at the drive in.


Friday, the second day of the car festival, is dedicated to family night. This whole day is filled with various activities that the entire family will enjoy. Children will love taking part in the many car themed activities and events at the Kids Club, while adults and car enthusiasts will enjoy watching competitors compete in the Summernats burnout competition. A rip-roaring concert from some of Australia's biggest bands closes out the day's events.


Saturday is filled with an eclectic mix of car themed events. The Federal Tyres Miss Summernats competition crowns a representative for this year's festival. Other events that are the highlight of this third festival day include a showcase of the top 60 elite cars, a tattoo competition, and a burnout competition. The day's events wind down with a spectacular fireworks display and a thrilling night time concert.


The festival closes on Sunday with events intended to wind down the festival. The day starts out with a grand parade featuring favourite cars and exhibits from the car show. The Summernats Burnout Championships wrap up for the year with a winner crowned in the finale. 


Some events such as the art exhibit and vendor showcase are available to festival goers for several days, including Friday, Saturday and Sunday. A three floor indoor exhibit and numerous outdoor vendors provide festival goers with the opportunity to see the latest and greatest items that auto vendors have to sell.
