One of the events that makes Brunswick Heads great is the annual Old and Gold Festival held in June.

This year the 18th edition of the festival will see thousands of visitors fill Bruns to the brim to see historical displays, antiques, vintage and collectibles fairs, 100 garage sales, community group displays and live music. The festival is a celebration of the many retro charms of Brunswick Heads all the while encouraging a recycle and re-use ethos.

This year’s program includes woodwork displays from Mullumbimby Women’s Shed, a roving reptile show from Macadamia Castle, a vintage caravan display and a kids’ chillout zone at the Brunswick Picture House.

Live, old timey music from Rhydian Lewis and Side Walk Stompers will have punters dancing in the streets.

This year for the first time Go Byron are running a shuttle bus service with stops in Suffolk Park, Mullumbimby and Ocean Shores. For a gold coin donation, you can avoid the car parking stress and potential fines.

Don’t forget to register your garage sale with Byron Shire Real Estate before this Friday, May 24.

June 8 is the date –  Head over to the Old and Gold Festival website for the shuttle timetable and all the Festival program details.
