The event also includes memorabilia displays, live music, and concerts including one of Australia’s leading Elvis Tribute Artists, Jack Gatto. In 2016, Jack represented Australia in the World Ultimate Elvis Tribute Artist Competition in Memphis, Tennessee, in which he was a finalist.

Get ready to wander through over 100 retro market stalls and 100 craft market stalls where you can purchase retro & classic 50’s and 60’s style clothing and souvenirs.

And of course its going to be a mammoth swap meet for keen traders with plenty of giveaways. After a great day of car candy you can eat dinner and then watch a late-night drive-in movie. Plenty of nostalgia awaits as you can step back in time while watching the old school rock ‘n roll shows and check out the wide collection of classic cars on display.
