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. The Vintage Collective Markets are the most fun vintage retro markets in Perth with unique items up for sale from a diversity of good quality vendors.

You may want to meander through the classic cars or art displays or watch the live tattooists in action. The popular Rock'n Ink Comp will take place from 5pm, which celebrates the art form that is Tattoo.

Maybe you fancy watching the fashion shows, pinup contest and parade or one of the many live demos taking place or listen to the armed forces' 1950's radio broadcasts.

Maybe you can kick back, watch and join in with one of the many live bands performing on the two stages. There will be a great selection of rckabilly and classic Rock n Roll tunes to sing and dance along to on the two stages.

Crash Creole will perform a selection of oldies with their high energy original set and Atomic Stagecoach will bring two completely unique eras together, Rockabilly/Country infused with the 1980s. They will have you singing along with all your favourite 1980s hits but without the electronic drums and synthesisers.

Ian Wright, Bang Bang Betty & the H-Bombs, Ten String Ramblers, The Surf Mist are also on the lineup.
