Motorlux: Party at the Pinnacle of All Things Automotive

When we say Motorlux is the premier party to kick off Monterey Car Week, we mean party.

The fun starts with over 100 rare airplanes and automobiles filling the tarmac at the Monterey Jet Center. That includes some of Car Week’s most exciting, curated vehicle exhibits — and the immersive experiences that surround them, like:

  • American Graffiti: Cruise back to the ‘50s and ‘60s with Kustoms, hot rods, milk shakes and drive-ins
  • California Dreamin’: Say surfs up to classic woody wagons, convertibles and avocado toast
  • Adventure Machines: Head to the corners of the earth and back with extreme rock crawlers, dune buggies, snow cars, ranch water and Dutch oven cooking
  • British Invasion: The UK’s most iconic cars with a spot of tea.

And that’s just the beginning.

Next up: Feast on some of California’s top culinary delights from chefs and restaurants you would usually need to wait months to get into, like Woody’s At The Airport, The Caviar Co, Robbie’s Seafood, Jerome’s and many more. You can also sample northern California’s world-famous wines from premier wineries like Lepe Cellars, Adobe Road Winery, Galante Family Winery and many more. Prefer beer, seltzer or spirits? Don’t miss Alvarado Street Brewery, California Seltzer Co, Highland Park Whisky, No. 3 Gin and more. Plus, enjoy the nonalcoholic “Unleaded Bar” by Fever Tree and “Water Bar” by San Benedetto.

And the very best part? In celebration of Hagerty’s 40th anniversary all Motorlux attendees are VIPs, meaning you’ll enjoy unlimited access to every inch of the tarmac — including a special “Class of ‘84” vehicle exhibit inside the hangar. It’s Hagerty’s Motorlux gift to you.

So put on your dancing shoes and get ready for a night full of world-class vehicles, interactive entertainment and nonstop automotive fun with fellow car lovers. And — speaking of car love — all Motorlux tickets include complementary access to Broad Arrow’s Monterey Jet Center Auction on August 14 and 15, featuring 150 exceptional motor cars. Experiencing the thrill of Monterey’s premier auction has never been easier.
