The Longford Revival Festival celebrates an important chapter in Tasmania’s history and a vital part of the history of Longford and its surrounding regions.

It is a celebration of the car races that took place from 1953 to 1968 in the town, but it is most importantly a celebration of the people that made it happen  - their spirit that made Tasmania the focus of our nation, indeed, of many around the world.

The Revival Festival intends to keep the memories alive - of the cars, the people and the era.

But it is a festival for our times. Memories mixed with the new vitality of Northern Tasmania.  Showcasing fine food and wine, the new industries of the north since the hey-days of Longford in the fifties and sixties.
 
The Longford Revival Festival promises three fun filled days. Wine from the  Tamar Valley, fine gourmet food, live 60s music, the greatest automotive collection ever put together in this state, and memories from the golden days of one of Tasmania’s oldest, and most famous towns.

It is a chance to see history, to touch history, in a totally modern facility on the great Flying Mile, part of the famous Longford track. One hundred magnificent machines from Australia and overseas, with performances daily.

If you loved the sixties, or want to tell your kids, or their kids, about that magic time, come to the Longford Revival Festival from April 1 to 3.

Dress sixties style to impress and win fabulous prizes as well.
