Rockin’ Rosebud rolls into summer

With Rosebud’s long history as a great place to enjoy summer beach holidays, what better place to revive the fun-filled ‘50s and ‘60s lifestyle?

Foreshore RockFest, from November 25-27, will involve a series of music, dance, movie, car and vintage shopping events. In its first year, all activity will be based in Rosebud.

The fun starts on the Friday evening with a beach party in the Rosebud Scout Hall. On Saturday morning the town centre will rock with hot rod and ‘chrome bumper’ cars on show, ‘50s performers and dancers along the footpath and a ‘50s and ‘60s market at Rosebud Primary School (continuing on Sunday at 10am).  The market will include clothing, food, DJs, bands, and dance demonstrations and classes, with a gold coin entry.  The town’s vintage shops will pump with music, fashion and bargains, while the cinema will feature a classic Audrey Hepburn movie.  

On Saturday evening, bands will perform at multiple dance venues, and the Dromana 3 Drive-In will screen an Elvis double feature.

Sunday’s entertainment will include a pre-1970s hot rod and classic car show on the Village Green, and a vintage clothing and ‘pin up’ contest will be held in the adjacent memorial hall. All events will culminate at 3pm.
