Cruise into this year's ChromeFest - in your lounge room

REV heads and lovers of classical cars will still be able to enjoy the amazing ChromeFest event this year, but they will be doing so in their own living room.
ChromeFest is our region’s most outstanding event and is normally held at The Entrance waterfront. It is also the festival with the most potential for growth and national recognition, but even a roaring V8 can’t drown out the restrictions necessary during the pandemic.
The Coast’s ChromeFest may not be going ahead in its usual format this year but Central Coast Council has found a way to keep the engine humming in 2020.
ChromeFest Overdrive TV will bring the head-turning beauty of classic American cars and some classic 1950s rock 'n' roll fun into the homes of locals and the many visitors who travel to the Coast for the event each year. 
Council Unit Manager Community Partnerships Glenn Cannard said the event would feature many interactive moments.
“ChromeFest is a Central Coast institution and while we’ve switched gears in 2020, ChromeFest Overdrive TV will offer a lot of fun for everyone,” Mr Cannard said.
“The year 2020 has not been a great year for events and initiatives, so this will help keep the fun alive.
“There’s something for everyone – vote for your favorite show cars across 18 different categories, dance to your favorite bands and even pick up hair and makeup tricks through an online tutorial workshop.
“We’ve even partnered with some local restaurants and cafés to offer ‘ChromeFeast’ meals – so be sure to pick up some sumptuous takeaway options to enjoy while watching the event from the comfort of your own homes."
Mayor Lisa Matthews said the challenges of 2020 had inspired creative thinking in the events space.
“We may not be lining the streets of The Entrance to watch the chrome of classic cars roll into town but we will be able to enjoy some ChromeFest fun at home,” Mayor Matthews said.
“The restrictions required to manage COVID-19 have been challenging on all of us and initiatives like ChromeFest Overdrive TV are a great way to keep the fun alive and our community engaged.”
‘ChromeFest Overdrive TV’ highlights include:
Online Show N’ Shine in partnership with Californian Crusin’ Car Club, for the public to vote for their favorite ChromeFest car across 18 categories.
Viva La Vintage hair and makeup tutorial workshop.
Miss ChromeFest Pinup competition.
The Sydney Swing Katz tearing up the dance floor dance displays.
ChromeFest 2020 bands live streamed.
ChromeFeast – a selection of hospitality businesses from across the coast will have meal packages to be enjoyed whilst streaming the fun.
ChromeFest Overdrive TV will be featured on the ChromeFest Facebook page on Saturday and Sunday, October 24 and 25, 2020. Visit www.chromefest.org
