Get ready to Rock N Roll!

Victor Harbor Rock N Roll Festival 2019

The countdown is on to the McDonalds Victor Harbor Rock N Roll Festival!

The Rock N Roll Festival has been running since 2008, and has grown into a three day event in September that creates a hive of activity in the town centre with live bands, two dance floors, market stalls, evening events and over 500 vehicles from the rock n’ roll era lining Ocean Street and around Warland Reserve.

The 2019 event will be held from Friday 13 to Sunday 15 September and the lineup of entertainment is certain to get the town jumping! Some of the bands playing over the weekend include acts such as The Silverados, Satellites, Rockit Combo, The Cadillacs, Lefty Roulette and the Joint Jumpin’ Hepcats and The Lincolns.

In addition to the free entertainment during the day, there are two official evening events held on Friday and Saturday night. Tickets for these events are on sale now and can be purchased from or by phoning 08 8551 0776.

While the great line up of bands will set a great atmosphere it is the vehicle display that is the real drawcard. The Victor Harbor Rock ‘N Roll Festival is considered to be one of the best events to display vehicles. This status is thanks for the work of the Victor Harbor Historic Motor Vehicles Club who have been managing the display for more than 10 years.

This year’s Victor Harbor Rock ‘N’ Roll Festival is sponsored by naming rights sponsor McDonalds Victor Harbor, Bank SA Victor Harbor, Telstra Victor Harbor, Shannon’s Insurance, and both the Rotary Club of Encounter Bay and Rotary Club of Victor Harbor.

Coral Street Art Space is open!

Coral Street Art Space is open!

Have you visited the Coral Street Art Space yet? The space opened at the beginning of this month with the Living Arts Exhibition curated by local resident, Patricia Marsland. The exhibition was a great success with over 200 visitors in three weeks.

The space is now hosting its second exhibition, Drawing on Country. The Victor Harbor Drawing on Country program was coordinated by local Hamish MacMillan and supported by Country Arts SA. It involved people of all ages and abilities coming together on Granite Island to create work that expressed the individuals’ perspective of Granite Island. The pieces on display are truly spectacular!

The Coral Street Art Space is open from 10am to 4pm, Thursday – Monday. The Drawing on Country Exhibition runs until 30 September 2019.
