Chromefest 2023

I’ll be making for first trip north to Chromefest in 2023.

I have already sold out a beach shoot for this year.

The Central Coast is prepping for the esteemed ChromeFest car event at The Entrance, scheduled from 27th to 29th October.

Glenn Cannard, the head of the Council Unit for Community and Culture, shared, “Our Central Coast’s ChromeFest offers an unparalleled car show experience. Imagine a gathering of car lovers, rock ‘n’ roll fans, and even a touch of Elvis – all celebrating the iconic vibes of the 1950s and 60s over three days.”

“We’ve now opened the ChromeFest car entries to enthusiasts owning vehicles before 1979. Their dedication to transforming these cars into art pieces promises an even grander event this year,” Cannard added.

Vehicle spots are up for grabs; you can register by 23rd October or until spaces run out.

Recollecting past events, Cannard mentioned, “Earlier ChromeFest editions attracted over 50,000 people, so it’s crucial for car entrants to plan ahead.”

He emphasized, “Car participants and visitors should book their stays early. But this event isn’t just for the car fanatics. We invite both residents and tourists to partake in this entertainment-filled weekend.”

Here’s what’s in store for ChromeFest 2023:

  • Sparkling vintage car displays
  • An array of retro, trade, and diverse market booths
  • Four alfresco stages with dance floors and live performances
  • A retro fashion parade
  • The grand finale of the Australian Pin Up Pageant NSW
  • Lively vibes at The Entrance Hotel Hub
  • Roving entertainers
  • On-site DJ
  • Engaging Paint N Chrome sessions
