Japfest Returns To Mondello Park


Japfest is back … and it’s a lot sooner than you think. That’s right, the 2024 edition of Japfest, Ireland’s largest JDM themed car show, touches down in Mondello Park this Sunday, April 28th this year, moving from when it was traditional October timeslot.

Following an unforgettable event in 2023, Mondello Park have decided to shake things up to make Japfest even more exciting with some amazing new attractions for everyone to enjoy. There will be able to enjoy an epic array of over 400 specially selected, modified Japanese cars on display, with new themed car areas and the return of the JDM-inspired area as well adding to this high octane show.

On track there will be the opening round of the 2024 Irish Drift Championship, the championship’s 20th anniversary season – with some incredible drivers battling it out to see who can take first blood in the championship fight. And of course, there is wide array of trade stands and food stalls  to explore. ‘ It’s great to have the IDC championship returning to Mondello Park, over the years it has been won by drivers who have gone on to dominate the international drift scene both in Europe and the US, having been won by James Deane, Jack and Conor Shanahan’ said Managing Director Roddy Greene.

Dave Egan and Josh Holdworth from Drift Games will be joining for Round 1, an amazing accomplishment after the devastation of a fire in their HQ which saw  it reduced to rubble earlier this month. Dave will be driving James Deanes’ 1000hp Eurofighter, Josh will be competing in the pro-class championship.

So for anyone looking to start the show season off right with one of the most exciting events of the year, then grab spectator tickets & find out more on japfestmondellopark.com.
