Wekfest returns to Japan for its 4th annual event at Port Messe Nagoya on May 3rd, 2017.
Started as a humbling event for grassroots enthusiasts in a small parking garage in 2009 in San Francisco, our event has now reached its ninth 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 that is one to remember.
Since 2014, Japan is the Wekfest tour’s exclusive international event, turning our focus into truly a global movement.
Wekfest follows a tradition of making each exhibiting car and vendor its focal point, not to be overshadowed by unnecessary 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.
