Please direct all questions to the organizers via the festival website:


The Old Bar Beach Festival is an annual community event that has grown to attract more than 30,000 people each year.
The Kombi/Transporter swap meet Australian record attempt is one of the major highlights of the festival. The number of Kombis that arrive at the festival has steadily increased over the last ten years due to the support of many Kombi owners who now have made the festival an annual pilgrimage.
For Kombi owners this festival is a place to meet and share their passion for their beloved buses with like-minded Kombi enthusiasts in a relaxed and festive atmosphere suited for the whole family.
Each year we look at what we can do to make the festival even better. In 2012 we added a spectacular fireworks display, hosted by Ka-Boom Fireworks and introduced more children’s entertainment. In 2013 we had more professional bands and artists and this year Saltwater Board Riders Club will host the Kev Lee Memorial Single Fin Cup and wrapping up the festival on Sunday afternoon will be Taree Old Bar Surf Life Savings Club’s beer, burger and footy grand final afternoon. We’ve changed the layout of the festival to make it easier to find all of those great market stalls and displays and to give a better view of the main stage.
