About the Show
ToyotaFest is an annual event aimed at promoting and celebrating the enthusiasm of Toyota Owners by providing an event where they can come together, display their pride and joy and chat with like minded individuals.
You don’t have to be part of a car club or own a Show car to enter ToyotaFest. If your Toyota is well presented, rare or just something you think other Toyota Enthusiasts would like to look at then we want you there.
ToyotaFest is run by the Toymods Car club who noticed a distinct lack of Toyota focused Show n Shine style events that catered to the wider Toyota Community, so after looking at the related automotive calendar the first ToyotaFest was held on Sunday 3rd of October 2004 and has been held on the Sunday of the October long weekend ever since.
Since its commencement ToyotaFest has grown to become the largest all Toyota car show held in NSW (possibly Australia) and we look forward to its continued growth in years to come.
There is no model Toyota we don’t want to see and we don’t care what running gear is hiding under the bonnet either.
We look forward to seeing you at the show.

ToyotaFest has always been a show where anyone can put their Toyota on display regardless of what model it is or the amount of time, effort, money and skill that has been lovingly consumed by it. Acknowledging this, the ToyotaFest Trophy Classes are intended to encourage the broad spectrum of vehicles that make this show great.
In line with the desired community feel and social focus of the event we have reduced the number of categories judged by officials to 4 elite show car categories.
- Best of Show – Highest overall scoring vehicle
- Best Paint & Panel – Best finish and workmanship of vehicle exterior
- Best Interior – Best finish and workmanship of vehicle interior
- Top Engine Bay – Best presented engine bay
The entrant’s choice trophy has always been awarded to the vehicle that has impressed not the judges but the competitors who have given their all to present their pride and joy to the show. These are vehicles that standout from the crowd not because of the flawless paint or highly polished engine bays but because they are amazing cars that are most appreciated by their peers. Logic would suggest that the best of show would be a shoe in for this award but this is rarely the case. This award is for those cars that are amazing in spite of their flaws. In line with the community feel of ToyotaFest, the entrants choice category include’s a 1st, 2nd and 3rd place trophy.
With the generous support of our sponsors, we hope to have a number of prize packs that will be awarded to entrants for a variety of deserving reasons. Whilst no trophy will be awarded with the prize pack, it gives us an opportunity to recognise the efforts that competitors have made to prepare their cars and attend the event. The total number of prize packs available and the reason for each award will be disclosed at the event.
