Old Bar Beach Festival

Old Bar beach 6 Oct 2019

The Old Bar Beach Festival is an annual community event that has grown to attract more than 30,000 people each year.
The Kombi/Transporter swap meet Australian record attempt is one of the major highlights of the festival. The number of Kombis that arrive at the festival has steadily increased over the last ten years due to the support of many Kombi owners who now have made the festival an annual pilgrimage.
For Kombi owners this festival is a place to meet and share their passion for their beloved buses with like-minded Kombi enthusiasts in a relaxed and festive atmosphere suited for the whole family.
Each year we look at what we can do to make the festival even better.

In 2012 we added a spectacular fireworks display, hosted by Ka-Boom Fireworks and introduced more children’s entertainment. In 2013 we had more professional bands and artists and this year Saltwater Board Riders Club will host the Kev Lee Memorial Single Fin Cup and wrapping up the festival on Sunday afternoon will be Taree Old Bar Surf Life Savings Club’s beer, burger and footy grand final afternoon.

We’ve changed the layout of the festival to make it easier to find all of those great market stalls and displays and to give a better view of the main stage.

The Old Bar Classic is held on the Saturday of the Old Bar Beach Festival. The number of classics is growing each year, as is the number of spectators.

Escape the busy crowds and explore the growing range of classics on display – from veteran to modern street machines and motorcycles. You might just find some inspiration for that project waiting in the back shed.

Own a ‘Classic’?

If you’re the owner of a ‘Classic’ — be it veteran, vintage, modern, muscle, hot rod, street machine or motorcycle — bring it along display your work to our crowd of thousands.

Registration is just $5. You’ll get a sticker to say you were there, and go in the draw to win $1,000 to keep that classic shiny for next year. There will also be some prizes from our sponsors up for grabs over the weekend!

Classics and Beetles are welcome, and encouraged, to tag onto the Kombi Parade at the end of the day on Saturday. See the Kombi page for details.

Please check the registrations page for all terms and conditions. The most important items are that you must still be there to win the $1,000 and that you must not move your vehicle between the hours of 8am and 4pm without an official escort.
