Markets to get retro in Yanchep National Park

THE Vintage Collective Markets will be part of next year⿿s Retro Rewind event in Yanchep National Park.

The City of Wanneroo announced a partnership with the markets last month to feature at the March event honouring the 1950s to 1970s.

“Retro Rewind featuring The Vintage Collective Markets is a joyful celebration of all things vintage, an opportunity to look back and reflect on a bygone era,” Mayor Tracey Roberts said.

“Visitors will not only listen to live retro tunes but see a fabulous vintage fashion parade and experience all things retro.”

Markets director Michelle Kolk said a variety of stallholders would make the trip to Yanchep from all over Perth to deliver unusual wares.

“We are a bunch of true rockabilly, vintage-loving people bringing our passion for vintage and retro to the City of Wanneroo community,” she said.

“Some of our vendors are closing down stalls in Fremantle and Midland just for this event.”

Visitors will be able to browse about 60 stalls, plus activities and get a haircut or shave at an event barbershop.

Expressions of interest for the hot rod display opened on November 16, with the City inviting up to 50 owners of hot rods, pre-1960, customs and American classic cars to take part.

The national park will waive entry fees for the free March 12 event.
