Participants/Show-cars related questions: updated 3/10/2020
- My letters are not yet arrived! Will I be ok?
YES> Please don’t panic, it is ok… If you successfully registered (meaning you did receive the first e-mail confirmation letter in April/May) then you are on our list. Sometimes letters do get lost in transit. TORC staff will be at the gate for your check-ins. Please allow some time and get ready to be stand-by at gate while we check you in. Check our Show Car Entry Instruction page.
- Can I park with my friends?
Basically no. However it is possibly done only within the same models of registered vehicles of a few, when you roll-in together. There is no guarantee. Please be reminded – this event does not offer any car club parking as agreed on the registration rules. Parking sections are designated based on the models due to smooth and fast parking situation of 500 cars. Thanks for your kind understandings.
- I can not make it. Can my friend come on behalf? Or can I get a refund?
Your friend can take your spot. TORC is not responsible for any money transactions between you and friend. ** Since the confirmation letters have already been mailed out to the original registered owners, all transfers need to be handled at the gate by TORC staff. Your friend needs to arrive at 8:30am with the confirmation letter handy or with your info so we can verify.
No refund is going to be made as agreed at your time of registration.

ANNOUNCEMENT (posted 2/29/2016: Last updated 3/10/2020)
Going back to its roots, the intent of All Toyotafest was to be an annual gathering of TOYOTA enthusiasts where they can enjoy and appreciate all makes and models of TOYOTA vehicles. All Toyotafest was never intended to be a form of competition with “winners” and “losers”. That is, no more 1st, 2nd and/or 3rd place awards in specific categories. Rather, TORC Directors want to acknowledge the owner’s efforts within their selected category of participation and recognize individuals for outstanding and/or unique work. The TORC Board will select and present recognition Badge of Recognition to participants that bring outstanding vehicles to the show. That is “Recognition for Outstanding Workmanship” awards.
All Toyotafest is intended to be an event where all Toyota enthusiasts can bring their vehicles, visit with other enthusiasts, build camaraderie, partake in a sense of community, and to enjoy the day with friends and family. We are here to promote community and provide a safe and fun event for people to enjoy a common love of TOYOTA vehicles.
