The vintage movement in New Zealand is substantial and growing rapidly. It is made up of a diverse community of like-minded individuals who are independent and passionate about pin up, tattoo art, vintage inspired and retro fashion, rockabilly, swing & rock & roll, vintage & classic vehicles and hot-rods & muscle cars.

Spread over the single level of pavilion 6 and with onsite car parking there will be loads of vendors in attendance with a huge range of retro and vintage inspired products and food on sale to tempt those with a passion for the past.
This unique event is set to attract attendees from all over the country which reflects the thriving communities of retro and vintage life style followers throughout New Zealand.

There are four key areas of visitor engagement within the event:
