We're back baby, Toranafest 2024. Get the calendar out and mark the dates.

 

Celebrating 30 years of Toranafest, the Hunter valley Torana Club is once again hosting Toranafest in Maitland on the 14th and 15th of September 2024. Toranafest 2019 was absolutely crazy with over 450 Torana’s travelling from all over Australia to be a part of this great event. We are expecting another big one if not the biggest.

Again, we are proudly supporting Ronald McDonald House and Dog Rescue Newcastle. Toranafest 2019 raised $25,000 for these charities.

 

Toranafest preferred accommodation can be booked at:

Old Maitland Inn - 4932 5255 

Maitland City Motel - 4932 8322

There are other motels around the Maitland / Rutherford / East Maitland area.

 

Please note that further details and entry forms will be available in due course so don’t panic and smash the inbox. This event is run by volunteers from the Hunter Valley Torana Club. 

 

We look forward to seeing you all in September 2024.

 

HVTC Toranafest Committee

Is there secure parking at either of those two, or is it as laid back as Cowes where 50 million dollars worth of cars are just parked out in the street over the weekend?

Looking forward to it ladies & gents.

 

I'll probably just camp up somewhere unless there's a particularly stand-out hotel experience someone is recommending.

Let me know if there's any dramas with it mate. It has been active for a day or so,and a bow wave of entrants have already used it.   :burnout:

Just for those playing at home...
I should say that Toranafest 2024 is a
"free entry for spectators" event.
That is, you do not need a ticket to walk in a have a look around.
Like wise if you do enter your Torana, we don't care how many passengers you arrive with.
The Eventbrite system is for those entering a Torana.
