Targa Newfoundland is an annual 2,200-kilometre (1,400 mi) long road rally. It is held over a seven-day period in September of each year on the paved roads of the eastern and central parts of Newfoundland.

Mazda RX-8 used in the rally, shown at the 2005 Canadian International Autoshow.

The event allows the owners of historic, classic and modern sporting motor vehicles to drive them the way they were designed to be driven in a rally competition. In the event each vehicle competes against itself on a handicap basis as well as against other vehicles.

There are also trophies for overall placing in the Touring and Targa events, and for placing within the various categories within the Targa event, as well as trophies for national and marque teams, and for the best-placed novice team.

The Targa Newfoundland is made possible though the efforts of 2,200+ volunteers and members of 70+ Newfoundland communities.
