Started as a humbling event for grassroots enthusiasts in a small parking garage in 2009 in San Francisco, our event has now reached its eight year serving the community. Wekfest focuses on working with the leading brands and individuals both within the car community and various sub-cultures to bring an event to the Hawaii islands that is one to remember.
Wekfest follows a tradition of making each exhibiting car and vendor its focal point, not to be overshadowed by other theatrics. For one day, we create an environment for all car enthusiasts, and those new to the scene to gather, commune and share their common interests.
This year’s event will feature:
250+ pre-screened European, Japanese, and Domestic aftermarket builds.
Vendor’s row consisting automotive and lifestyle brands.
Event coverage from all major automotive publications.
Official Wekfest model, Liz Kara.
Local + international spectators and invited guests.
Listed by Travel Magazine as Hawaii’s Best Festivals and Fairs in 2017.
With over 250 vehicles on display, we offer over 50+ awards for various makes and categories to properly honor the leaders of our community.
