Old Bar Beach Festival 1st & 2nd October 2011
Do you love Kombis? Old cars? Good food? parades? Markets? Having fun? Then you will LOVE the Old Bar Festival. On the weekend of 1-2 October go to Old Bar (4 hour drive north of Sydney, Located at the southern entrance of the Manning River) and have a blast! http://www.oldbarbeachfestival.com.au/
Celebrating Kombis, Our Coastal Culture and Laidback Lifestyle Old Bar, located on the coast, 16 kilometres from Taree has a population of just under 4000.
However unlike many other small coastal villages it has managed to keep and indeed prize its special laid back character and heritage and this is celebrated each year by the Old Bar Beach Festival.
This Festival held over the October long weekend celebrates all that is great about Old Bar and Aussie Beach culture.
The event now in its seventh year attracted 17,000 visitors in 2010, including the 218 Kombis for an Australian record.
