Explore our pathways to become a part of one of the biggest events of its kind. We know that transportation can be a barrier in creating a better life. CarFest aims to bridge the gap by repairing cars for 25 families selected through area non-profits and develop the next generation of automotive professionals to create a diverse and thriving workforce.

A Festival Creating Unity in the Community with Automotive Characteristics
Each year in April, CarFest SA unites 25 Auto Repair shops across the greater San Antonio area to give out 10 donated cars and repair 25 cars for charity. The repairs and giveaways culminated in our three-day event also include live music, food trucks, drinks, and family activities, such as: Gelly Ball, New Driver Workshop & Jeopardy, BBQ Cook-off, Cars on Display, Food Truck Competition & a Friday Night Lights Cruise-In.
Each year we work hard to make CarFest SA a more charitable and interactive event, so if you have visited before, you won’t want to miss it again!
CarFest SA is a non-profit festival is presented by The Community of Automotive Professionals (CAP, a 501C3). Our mission is to unite the automotive industry to provide our community with charitable and educational services.
