After hosting successful shows in Los Angeles, Dallas-Fort Worth, Japan, New Jersey, and Las Vegas, FuelFest is now gearing up for its third year in South Florida. The event is scheduled from 1 p.m. to 8 p.m. on Feb. 24 at the South Florida Fairgrounds, 9067 Southern Blvd.
FuelFest has been around for six years and has hosted events globally from Los Angeles to Abu Dhabi. It combines automotive enthusiasts’ passion for the automotive world with live music, appearances by Fast & Furious franchise stars such as Cody Walker, car drifting, live action, and automotive culture. This year, the show will showcase hundreds of top custom, exotic, rare, and exclusive cars and trucks and interactive fan racing activities, ride-alongs, and other engaging attractions.
The upcoming event promises to be an action-packed affair, with non-stop excitement throughout the show. Attendees can expect to find curated display sections featuring over 50 brands and exhibits showcasing products and contests. The show will also feature movie cars on display, multiple live performances from hip-hop artists and DJs on the Festival Stage, and special guests walking the show. For those who want to take their experience to the next level, FuelFest offers VIP access with premium benefits, early admission access for FuelClub members, limited edition merchandise, and more.
A portion of the proceeds from the event goes towards supporting Reach Out WorldWide (ROWW), a nonprofit charity established by the late actor and producer Paul Walker and continued by his brother, Cody Walker. ROWW was founded in 2010 following a massive earthquake that struck Haiti. The organization aims to bridge the gap between the availability of skilled resources in post-disaster situations. Since its inception, ROWW has raised over $360,000 through its FuelFest events to support those in need. The organization has also responded to disasters in various parts of the world, including Tampa Bay after Hurricane Ian and Turkey following the devastating earthquakes.
In 2022, The Weather Channel collaborated with Cody and Felicia Walker on a new series, Fast: Home Rescue. The show aimed to rebuild homes in the U.S. affected by natural disasters. The 2024 FuelFest World Tour will visit several major cities in the US, including Los Angeles, Dallas, South Florida, and Atlanta. Fans should also expect surprise international locations to be announced in the future.
