Retro Fest Rockabilly Weekender and Car Show 2018

The Lancaster Host Resort | website | lancaster, false 17602 event website

Retro Fest was created in 2016 as an event to bring the East Coast rockabilly and vintage community together and to celebrate the uniqueness of its culture.

We work with local organizations, businesses, car clubs and vendors to have a festival

full of music, vintage, classic cars, and numerous other activities.

The term "rockabilly" is used to describe a kind of music that mixes elements of rock and roll, rhythm & blues and country. It has expanded into a category that involves everything included with 1950s style living.


With the 1950s and a bit of 60s and 70s in mind, we hand pick everyone who is involved in our festival to ensure they fit the theme.

Pre 1972 Car Show from 10 to 5. hosted by the Greasers Social Club (Saturday)

Vendors from 10 to 6. vintage 1950s/60s and retro related items (Saturday)
Pin Up Contest (Saturday)

Then Sings My Soul: Beloved Hymns & Songs inspired by the ministry of Billy Graham

The Red Caboose Motel & Restaurtant | website | Ronks, false 17572 event website

Sunday, August 19 | 3PM & 7PM

Featuring 4 professional vocalists from the Lancaster, Pennsylvania area, "Then Sings My Soul" highlights inspiring hymns of faith and devotion often sung at Billy Graham's famous Crusades. With the recent passing of Dr. Graham in February of this year, "Then Sings My Soul" highlights historical moments in Reverend Graham's ministry and includes a look at the history behind some of the most famous hymns - many of which were written as a result of tragic and trying circumstances. Featuring favorites such as In the Garden, It is Well with My Soul, Every Time I Feel the Spirit and Just As I Am, we hope to spread joy and encouragement amidst today's often broken world. We'll even have an old-fashioned hymn sing, just like in the "good old days"!

A free-will offering will be taken during the performance and will be donated to The Billy Graham Library Endowment in memory of Dr. Graham.
