This huge family fun packed event is back this year and with so much to do, you will have to ensure you get there early to fit it all in. The organisers are expecting a record crowd this year!
It's on at Wanneroo Showgrounds on October 7th 2017 from 10.00am until 9.00pm. The event is a festival of nostalgia, celebrating all things 1950's through to the 60's, including music, fashion and rides of all descriptions.
What makes this event stand out is it is a major fundraising event for Telethon, who are celebrating 50 years of helping the community of Western Australia this year. Telethon conduct research into many childhood diseases, conditions and issues and your support at Telethon fundraising events will make a difference to their successes.
There will be a gigantic market with over 100 vendors sporting rockabilly, vintage goods, automotive artists, jewellers, tattooists, pinup fashion, handmade furniture, shed collectables and signage to name just a few.
