What is Star City Motor Madness?
Star City Motor Madness is a celebration of America’s passion for the automobile and the love of cruising. The event held the last Friday and Saturday in June draws from throughout the Mid-Atlantic and beyond. The event is a fundraiser for charity.
Where do the proceeds from the events go? Proceeds go to The Virginia Museum of Transportation, The Commonwealth Coach & Trolley Museum and Center-in-the-Square, all of which are based in Roanoke. Additional donations are made to other organizations that vary each year. The Virginia Museum of Transportation features a diverse collection of America’s transportation history with an impressive collection of railroad "rolling stock" including the famous Norfolk and Western #611 streamlined steam locomotive. With help from Star City Motor Madness the museum has built an automotive gallery where changing automotive exhibits take place.
