Over 20 years of fun

What began as a small BBQ for friends has grown into a world-class event known in the automotive community as the unofficial kick off to Monterey Car Week. Gordon and Molly McCall founded Motorworks Revival in 1991 and have evolved it into the memorable, can’t-miss party it has become. This exclusive event draws more than 3,000 enthusiasts to the Monterey Jet Center for an evening of dining, drinking, dancing and more among private jets and vintage cars.

Motorworks Revival regulars can expect the same great party they have come to know and love with a few extra special surprises.

Together the McCalls and Hagerty will continue to find innovative ways to delight the guests of Motorlux.

Guests can expect more opportunities to get the next generation involved at Motorlux. While the party itself will remain 21+, Hagerty is exploring ways to offer some youth-focused experiences around the time of the event. Know a car-loving kid?
