It’s Rosebud’s long history as a great place to enjoy summer lovin’ holidays that makes it the perfect place to revive the fun-filled ‘50s and ‘60s lifestyle.
Now in its’ fourth year the Foreshore Rockfest is held over four days, 14-17 November 2019. The festival is a fun celebration of all things groovy; cool cars and hot bands, rock music dances and shows, retro clothing markets and a Pin-Up contest.
It all starts with Rock’n’roll trivia on Thursday to get you warmed up for the main event…think you know your rock and roll history – get a group together and join in the fun!
The official launch takes place on Friday evening under the Big-Top located on the Rosebud Carnival site, with special guest performer Normie Rowe and The Playboys, just one of many performances featuring bands who play 50’s and 60’s music. The Rockfest Marquee has live bands and dancing from Friday night all the way through to Sunday afternoon!

At Memorial Hall, there’ll be dance classes, the Peninsula School of Dance has Kids Dance Classes for children aged 8-15 years in the styles of Rock ‘n’ Roll and Lindy Hop/Swing.
The 1960’s was a golden era for kids toys…before the Internet and the invention of video games, children used their imaginations to play games. Children of the 1950s played games like Tag, Hide and Seek, Leap Frog, Marbles and Hopscotch. Many of these games involved competition, and often kept children occupied for hours at a time. This year, Retro Party Games will take place Village Green will take you back to your childhood memories with range of vintage games for your kids to enjoy – with great prizes to win! (Gold coin donation – all proceeds are donated to the Rosebud Toy Library).
Late Saturday afternoon and into the evening, the Beach Party kicks off with more rock, more roll from Australia’s coolest bands with a Rockabilly twist on The Village Green’s Soundshell.
Sunday brings the Creative Custom Cars Classic Car Show, with hundreds of pre-1975’s Hot Rods, Motorbikes and Vintage Caravans on show, rockabilly bands and for fashionistas, a vintage clothing and ‘Pin Up’ contest.
