Kurri Kurri Nostalgia Festival

Polish your cars, shine your shoes and get out your best dresses, the Kurri Kurri Nostalgia Festival rock and rolls back into town on the last weekend in March. It’s been 16 years since the first festival brought the 1950's to life in the streets of Kurri Kurri and the weekend continues to be one of the Hunter’s most popular events.

Kurri Kurri Nostalgia Festival celebrates all the good things from the 1950’s and 1960's – rock n roll music, dancing, classic cars, vintage clothing and good old fashioned fun. There’s something for everyone with free entertainment and activities throughout the weekend on the PRD Nationwide Hunter Valley Main Stage in Rotary Park Kurri Kurri.

If you love classic cars and hot rods, Shannon’s Show and Shine is a real highlight, with an amazing display of hundreds of immaculate classic cars and hot rods.

The Retro Market Place brings together some of the biggest and best nostalgia-themed retro and vintage market stalls from across the country. You’ll find themed merchandise, retro goods, vintage clothing, rock n roll memorabilia, collectables and plenty for car enthusiasts.

Whether you remember the 1950s or are inspired by that era, getting dressed up is part of the fun of the weekend. So don your vintage or 1950s inspired outfits and join us in Kurri Kurri, get your photo snapped, and you could even win a prize by entering a Best Dressed competition.

The festival kicks off on Friday 29 March, with a Free Family Fun Night from 5pm in Rotary Park and runs throughout Saturday 30 and Sunday 31 March.

It’s a great weekend for all the family at the Kurri Kurri Nostalgia Festival. For the full program, visit
