Nostalgia Festival

Kurri Kurri Nostalgia Festival 
 is recognised as a NSW Tourism Flagship Event.

Day out

The weekend attracts over 30,000 people to the region and town centre and is all about Rock n Roll, Classic Cars, Hot rods and the 50's and 60's.

Day out

There are lots of great 'rock n roll' and 'rockabilly' dances...

There’s a classic car and hot rod show
with over 400 cars on display,  rock n roll dance workshops,
talent quests, feature bands, markets stalls,
Vegas wedding renewals,  and much more.


 It was a great Day out
and so much fun...
The clothes and outfits were so lovely...
I could be easily converted to become a rockabilly wannabee
and wear some very, very cool outfits...


I found this stall...
Gorgeous!!!

Love the pictures. We have been talking rock and roll in the rig for the last couple of days and so my husband took the sewing machine out and sewed up Brabie clothes using Evis prints... lol too cute for words. Gosh I wish I had an inch of both your talents and an inch of his... Thank you for sharing!!

Dear Blueberries in the feild...
I can not remember for certain but I think it was 3-4 balls for the swirly scarf and they were really chucky weight...If you can buy the yarn and keep the receipt and see if you can exchange if you don't use it all...
It does use a lot...

Dear Mr mrs Crafty...that sound so sweet and thak you for your kind words...

Dear Mereknits...I took lots of "art shots"of the lovely shiney cars...and my son took lots of pics of everything else...unfortunatley when I tried to download his memory card in sent the computer into a spin...It has something to do with a corrupt programme...This was what happened on my old computer and now I am too scared to try it again as I don't want my new laptop to crash forever...
There is a web site for the festival thou with a photo gallery section...

Dear Lindel...
I did think of this when I was there on the weekend...That my lovely granny blankets were now living in a peachy home in Kurri...

We drove past our old house even...It was still looking quite lovely...I did get a little sad that I no longer lived there...

It would be so nice to catch up one day...

Hi Michelle,
It was a great weekend at Kurri.
Those clothes are so cool - I loved the car that the MisKonduct people had as well.
Thanks also for lots of great inspiring ideas on your blog - I have my sister working on a few projects to give to me as presents for my upcoming birthday.
