Would you call yourself a hepcat, doll, groover, or lover of rockabilly? Do you love playing dress-ups, recalling the poise and etiquette of a '50s 'lady' by wearing a waist cincher and poodle skirt (as you bake a cake, of course)? Or, if you're a fella, do you practice your "oh golly, oh gosh, oh gees" while wearing some incredibly high-waisted pants that your grandpa would be proud of? If you lean toward yes, it might be time to check out the annual Fifties Fare.
Rose Seidler House plays host (as only the perfect open-plan party house can), and all things that involve quiffed hair, '50s-style cars to cruise in, and retro Americana food will make an appearance. The ReChords and Scotty Baker & the Pat Capocci Combo will provide the vintage tunes to make you get your swing on, and specialist market stalls will stock authentic kit that you an carry on home.
