More American classic cars, an explosion of rock n roll and the ultimate in vintage glamour will deliver a weekend of head-turning, twist and shake fun this October.

Central Coast Council’s annual ChromeFest event is expected to attract more than 50,000 locals and visitors for a three-day tribute to hot-rods and everything 1950s and 60s.

Council Unit Manager Community Partnerships, Glenn Cannard said festival attendees can bask in the beauty of more than 400 show cars on display.

“When you combine classic chrome with rock ‘n’ roll, vintage glamour and the beauty of The Entrance, you have quite a weekend on your hands,” Mr Cannard said.

“Whether you’re a car enthusiast or not, you won’t be able to resist lining the streets to watch the classic cars cruise through The Entrance. 

“We invite locals and visitors to partake in a fun weekend that offers something for everyone – a vintage glamour fashion parade, retro market stalls, three outdoor dance floors and new to the event this year, The Old Tin Shed.”

Mayor Jane Smith said ChromeFest has become one of the Central Coast’s most successful events.

“Not only does ChromeFest inject a great deal of money into our local economy – $13.9million last year – it reintroduces tourists to The Entrance and Long Jetty, which both have so much to offer,” Mayor Smith said. 

“The event keeps getting bigger and better each year and we are looking forward to a big crowd this year. 

ChromeFest 2019 highlights include:

  • iconic car displays – over 400 show cars to behold
  • lowriders display
  • retro market stalls
  • three outdoor stages boasting undercover dancefloors
  • vintage glamour fashion parade
  • ‘Set and Brush Out Workshop’ – an opportunity to master the perfect 50s or 60s ‘updo’
  • soaking up the atmosphere of this nostalgic event at outstanding cafes, restaurants and bars throughout The Entrance and Long Jetty. 

ChromeFest is a free three-day event – Friday 25 October to Sunday 27 October – held at The Entrance and presented by Central Coast Council and Californian Cruisin Incorporated. 
 
Road closures will be in place during the event. Council’s free shuttle buses will leave every two hours from 9am on Saturday and 8am on Sunday from Tuggerah Railway Station on Bryant Drive, Darren Kennedy Oval on Evans Road in Toukley and on Yakalla St in Bateau Bay.
