Prepare to witness the most massive JDM car show in the country, a true homage to the best of Japanese car culture, Japfest. The adrenaline-fueled on-track action and competition will be unparalleled, featuring a stellar lineup of renowned names from the Drifting scene, showcasing their wildest cars and delivering incredible performances on the track.

But Japfest isn’t just about the heart-pumping action on the track. Off track, you’ll find a fantastic array of over 500 ‘Show and Shine’ JDM cars on display, representing more than 50 of Ireland’s finest Japanese Car Clubs, as well as proud individual owners. You can also explore various trade stands and food villages to keep you entertained throughout the event.


Ladies and gentlemen, welcome to Japfest, Ireland’s largest celebration of Japanese & JDM-themed cars and car culture.

Japfest takes place in Mondello Park annually and aims to bring together Ireland’s love for all things JDM under one roof, for one day only. Taking place this year on Sunday, April 28th, 2024, the latest instalment of the show is set to be the wildest – and with a brand new date, hopefully warmest – event yet!

Alongside an incredible array of Japanese and JDM-inspired show cars, the all-new Drift Games x Juicebox Live-Action Arena will be rocking all day long in the paddock with plenty of epic action and surprises. And as if that wasn’t enough, the opening round of the 2024 Irish Drift Championship’s Pro class competition will take place on track, giving everyone in attendance plenty to see and do all day long.

As always we’ll also have a large array of food and trade stalls around the venue to add even more spice to an already packed line-up.

As you can see, this is an event NOT to be missed, so with limited tickets available grab yours today before it’s too late.
