The Knysna Motor Show 2017

The Knysna Motor Show (KMS) is taking place this Sunday, the 30th of April, and promises to be bigger and better than ever before. The KMS is one of South Africa’s premier motor shows and considered to be one of the best motor shows in South Africa. With over 400 classic, vintage, veteran and super cars as well as classic and vintage road and racing motorcycles, it is an absolute must attend for all petrol heads!

Knysna Events

The KMS, hosted by the Garden Route Motor Club, takes place on the grounds of Knysna High School located in the beautiful Garden Route. The event takes place over the long weekend which provides the perfect opportunity for those from out of town to get away for the weekend and enjoy all that Knysna has to offer. The weather is promising to be warm and sunny which provides even more reason to get down to Knysna!


The KMS’s vision is to host a motor show promoting quality over quantity. The show is not about the volume of cars and motorcycles but rather places focus on interesting displays and pristine standard. Participants are personally selected and invited in order to display the best of the best which includes McLaren, Ferrari, Lamborghini and Jaguar to name just a few. The KMS is also complemented with new cars and trade related stalls which are sure to interest all. A further highlight of the Motor Show is the awarding of floating trophies and prizes in four different categories.

Last year’s show turned out to be a blockbuster event and exceeded all expectations. Some of the positive feedback from participants and the public included, “comparable with overseas motor shows”, “The best ever car show”, “Must rate as the best in South Africa”, “Extremely well organised”, “Will definitely be back next year”. The show boosts a country style and relaxed atmosphere and plans to grow in stature as well as attract interest from across South Africa and hopefully the world too.
