Virginia Festival of the Wheel is a 501(c)(3) Registered Virginia Charity

We presented some of the finest automobiles in the Commonwealth and beyond to raise funds to support the UVA Cancer Center Patient Care Fund. We are blessed to have one of the top 3% of Cancer Centers in the nation which treats thousands of patients each year.  Our donations assist the UVA Cancer Center in helping those cancer patients and their families who are facing financial hardship as well as coping with the emotional and physical trauma of fighting this disease.

The Virginia Festival of the Wheel is excited to present its 4th annual event on August 26, 27, and 28 at Boar's Head Resort in scenic and historic Charlottesville, Virginia. All proceeds supported the UVA Cancer Center Patient Care Fund.

Our theme is "Cars of the Autobahn" for the
2022 event. We'll have classes for Porsche, Mercedes-Benz, BMW and Audi

We expect the Virginia Festival of the Wheel Concours and our Jefferson Road Tour to offer fun for everyone!
