If you long for the carefree, fun-filled days of the 1950s and ‘60s, this one is definitely for you. The Rosebud Foreshore Rockfest is back for the fourth year from November 14-17 with a feast of classic cars and hot rods, rockabilly bands, rock music dancing and shows, retro clothing markets and heaps more.
Annual festival favourites such as the pin-up competition and show’n’shine car show will return along with some new events, including the outdoor cinema, Rosebud Primary School street market, carnival rides and music under the big-top marquee. And for the first time the Rockfest is licensed and sponsored by Chirping Bird Wines, Roseade and Urban Alley.
This year there are also many events the kids can get involved in, such as vintage games where they can battle it out with a good old-fashioned sack race or test their co-ordination and speed in an egg and spoon race. There will also be free family street entertainment along with rock’n’roll dance classes.
The Elvis Beach Party is sure to be a highlight for many, with the Elvis Big Band playing before the double screening of classic Elvis movies Girls Girls Girls and Viva Las Vegas.
Rosebud’s long history as a great place to enjoy summer-lovin’ holidays makes it the perfect location to discover, celebrate and revive the fabulous ‘50s and ‘60s lifestyle. It all kicks off on Thursday, November 14, with an evening of rock’n’roll trivia before the official launch on Friday, November 15, at the Rosebud Carnival site under the marquee with special guest performers Normie Rowe and The Playboys.
