The Festival Office will be open at the following times:

Thursday 21 October 3pm – 5pm

Saturday 23 October 9am-5pm

After these hours our team will be available at the Theatre Royal foyer, prior to evening events.

The Festival Office will be located within the Theatre Royal complex.

Will food be available for purchase?

During Saturday and Sunday we will have a number of street food vendors on site.

We hope to have some of our food vendors available on Friday and Saturday night, and they will stay open while they have trade.

Can I bring food?

Yes! While we encourage you to try the fare from our local businesses and street vendors, we understand that you may have personal food preferences or requirements.

How much are tickets?

Tickets purchased prior to the end of August are $48 + fees (adult pass) and $96 + fees (family pass)

Tickets purchased from 1 September to 20 October are $59 + fees (adult pass) and $118 + fees (family pass)

Tickets purchased once the event has started are $70 + fees (adult pass) and $140 + fees (family pass)

There will be very limited opportunity for buying tickets at the event per our COVIDSafe plan.

How many people will a family pass allow entry for?

We understand that some families are larger than others – and that’s OK! If your family are noted on your Medicare card – then they can get in on our family pass.  Limited to 2 adults and children per Medicare card.

Can I buy a ticket for just Thursday night/Friday night/Saturday night?

To secure a place and to avoid disappointment, we recommend purchasing an early bird ticket, as there will be limited walk-ups.

Is there camping?

We don’t have camping available on the festival site, and encourage you to check the accommodation options on our website: https://www.rocktheclock.com.au/accommodation/

Is there a cost to display vehicles?

No! Come along and get the best parking in town – for free! We will of course accept donations – your generosity helps us to put on this event each year.

Is there a cost to enter the general admission/market area?

There is no cost to enter the open street area where the Clocktower stage, car display and market stalls are located.
