What makes All Japan Day special?

All Japan Day uses a tried-and-true event format to ensure you have a great day out.

Charity Focus

All Japan Day donates all profits to charity. Previous recipients include, Surf Life Saving SA, Animal Welfare League, CFS Foundation, Kick Start for Kids, Novita and Scleroderma Australia.

value for money

Entrants are charged a nominal fee, to the extent that it’s often cheaper to park at the event than in the car park. Our events are free-of-charge for spectators.

relaxed atmosphere

No prizes, no roped-off areas, no loud music, no promo girls, just great cars parked on grass and owners willing to talk cars all day. Bring your family and friends, pack a chair, sit back and enjoy the tranquility.

About Us

The history of All Japan Day in under two minutes
Longing for the good old days when car shows were simple?

Back in 2008, a core group of motoring enthusiasts realised that community-based events that enabled like-minded car lovers to catch up and chat about their cars were beginning to disappear as larger, more professional events grew in popularity. The solution? Create an event that was as simple and cheap to enter as possible, and give car owners the opportunity to show off their rides, regardless of how weird or wonderful they were. The resulting event was called 'All Japan Day', which now attracts over 500 cars each year from all over Australia, raising money for charity.


Real people. Real friendly.
