No camping

Okay, don’t panic – the event hasn’t banned ‘sleep overs’. It’s just that the Jack Daniels Kumeu Classic Car & Hot Rod Festival provides show participants the opportunity to pitch a tent and stay overnight, it’s not a camp site for people who just want to party. By participants they mean swappers, indoor/outdoor car displayers, and trade site holders. And a word of advice – if you’re overnighting and have had a beer don’t go for a cruise around the showgrounds in your car; you can still be charged with drink-driving, and the police will be stopping by.

  • Access to the venue for swappers and campers will be from Friday only.
    Show promoters Ken and Desma Galvin have made some changes to the festival’s set up times to help set-up run smoothly and to encourage participants to stay on-site until prize-giving on Sunday. Car clubs will be admitted to the grounds Friday morning earliest, however access will be granted on Thursday to mark out areas, but no car club camping permitted Thursday night. Clubs are asked to stay for the duration of the festival, and pack up after prize-giving at 3.30pm on Sunday. Trade and swap sites can set up Thursday, but there is to be no trading (buying or selling) at all on Thursday.
  • Camping is available on site, please don’t abuse the privilege and remember, you are responsible for your teenage family members’ behaviour.
  • No food or drink to be sold from swap sites.
  • Kumeu Classic Car and Hot Rod Show organisers reserve the right to refuse entry to any individual, organisation or business. Police and security can and will issue trespass notices, in the best interests of other participants.
  • No cruising the showgrounds in any vehicles whatsoever please during show hours or after the gates close. This includes bicycles, motorbikes, motorised chilly bins etcetera.
