From 30 May 2014 To 09 Jun 2014
Cooly Rocks on 2014, the biggest 50s and 60s nostalgia festival in Australia! Over 2 kilometres of Rock 'n roll, Rockabilly, Swing and over 1,000 hot rods, custom cars and classic cars lining the stunning beachfront of Coolangatta and Tweed Heads.
Browse through 100 retro market stalls and 100 craft market stalls, take your taste buds back to the 50s and 60s with vintage styled food and join in the atmosphere that draws over 70,000 people back year after year.
Music fills the venues, more retro cars roll up each day and the festival builds and builds, culminating in a Grand Finale weekend where the streets are closed down, the outdoor stages are moved in and the streets are alive with street parades, shows, displays and over 1,000 cars parading from Kirra to Tweed Heads each evening.Australia's largest Elvis Presley memorabilia collection. Relax in a special sit down area where you can look through original newspaper clippings, magazines, advertisements, promo products, photos, letters, cards and hundreds of Elvis items. Plus you'll be able to see rare Elvis footage on two large wide screens while listening to non-stop Elvis music throughout the display.
