It’s a blast from the past! City of Wanneroo’s Retro Rewind will return to the lush surrounds of Yanchep National Park on Saturday 9 March.

A funky celebration of all things yesteryear, this rose-tinted family-friendly event will feature everything from retro fashion and music to classic hot rods and market stalls.

Headlining the afternoon is eight-piece ensemble Hornography, whose jazzy tunes reminiscent of James Brown and Marvin Gaye are guaranteed to get the dancefloor grooving.

Also hitting the stage is Peta Lee and the Sultanas of Swing and The Rough Housers, two acts that will get toes tapping and hips swaying with their rhythmic blend of rockabilly, blues
and swing.

City of Wanneroo Mayor Tracey Roberts said Retro Rewind offered something for all ages.

“The Vintage Collective Markets will once again be a major attraction, with dozens of stalls selling a wide range of vintage items,” Mayor Roberts said. “A vintage fashion parade will showcase colourful designs from the 50s and 60s, while fierce hot rods will delight car lovers young and old.

“Free activities such as a vintage photo booth, bouncy castle, classic arcade games and giant lawn games will keep the children entertained all afternoon.”

Retro Rewind runs from 1pm to 5pm, with entry to Yanchep National Park free from midday.

The City of Wanneroo would like to thank event sponsors The Vintage Collective Markets, Channel 9, North Coast Weekender, The Department of Biodiversity, Conservation and Attractions and the Parks and Wildlife Service.
