Date: 7th til 11th June 2017
Location: Coolangatta Esplanade Cooly Rocks
Cooly Rocks On is Australia’s largest 50’s and 60’s nostalgia festival held in Coolangatta and Tweed Heads over 4 days from the 7th June to 11th June 2017. Over two kilometres of the Gold Coast beach front is lined with more than 1000 hot rods, custom and classic cars with pumping rockabilly, swing, and rock ‘n’ roll music in the background. There are hundreds of retro, craft, and food stalls filled with antiques, clothes, trinkets, and cuisine from a different era. In fact, Cooly Rocks On is popular to many simply for the vintage food alone! Having said that, the great music, impressive cars, and friendly and buzzing atmosphere are all part of what draw the 100 000 people back year after year.
The event culminates on the final day of the event in a Grand Finale that closes the streets, sees the outdoor stages moved together, and the festival come alive with street parades, shows, displays, competitions, and the assortment of vintage cars lining the streets.
The festival is free, and tickets to special indoor shows can be purchased at the door or online. Don’t miss Cooly Rocks On for a lack of accommodation. Speak to the experts at Discover Queensland on 1300 788 553 to book your Cooly Rocks On accommodation today.
