A Message from Ferrari Owners Charitable Foundation:

Thank you so much for your interest in the Golden Gate Ferrari Festival. We have encountered unforeseen challenges including a recent question over the structural integrity of Civic Center Plaza that must be explored by a structural engineering firm to ensure the overall safety of the event. On June 20, 2016, with this unfortunate situation still unresolved, we came to the difficult decision to cancel the Festival.  We deeply regret being unable to move forward to make our vision of Ferraris on the Plaza a reality.

We are committed to respecting the time and energy of our team and that of the Make-A-Wish organization, the quality of the Ferrari brand, and above all your safety, confidence and enjoyment. It is impossible to fully express our regret at canceling this splendid event, as well as our gratitude to you for considering being a part of it.  Thank you.

400 Ferraris

September 10, 2016

Civic Center, SF

Charity: Make-A-Wish

Will take place on Saturday September 10, 2016 at San Francisco’s Civic Center Plaza Park.

The festival will showcase many of the finest Ferraris in existence, drawing from some of the most legendary private collections in the world. With full support of the city, the streets encircling the iconic park will be shut down to allow for this truly exceptional event.

Visitors will have an opportunity to get up close and personal with rare, new, and vintage Ferraris from across the marque’s storied history. Many of these vehicles have never been displayed publicly and festival goers will have unprecedented access to the vehicles and their owners.

The festival raises funds and awareness for Make-A-Wish Greater Bay Area and is organized by the Ferrari Owners Charitable Foundation, which has raised over $750,000 for charity since 2011 through automotive events.

One of the most recognized and respected charities in the world, Make-A-Wish ® Greater Bay Area grants the wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions to enrich the human experience with hope, strength, and joy.

In 2013, Make-A-Wish Greater Bay Area drew international attention for granting the wish of five-year-old leukemia patient Miles Scott to become “BatKid.” With the help of over 20,000 volunteers, the city of San Francisco was transformed in an elaborate production to provide Miles with an unforgettable experience that was documented in the feature film “Batkid Begins: The Wish Heard Around the World.”

Make-A-Wish Greater Bay Area was founded in 1984. In its first year, a total of 27 wishes were granted. Now one of the largest chapters nationwide, they have granted over 7,000 wishes to date and grant over 340 wishes per year.
