Gloucester’s vintage car, fashion and music festival takes the city on a trip back in time, this August 2021.

Take a trip back in time without ever leaving Gloucester as the city’s vintage car, fashion and music festival returns on Saturday 28 August 2021.

Transporting the town back to the past, Westgate Street will represent 1900 to 1949; Northgate Street the 1950s; Eastgate Street the 1960s; and Southgate Street from 1970 to the present day.

Over 500 classic cars and vehicles will line the streets from the city centre to Gloucester Docks, with everything from military vehicles and tanks; vintage buses; to sports cars from famous brands like Aston Martin, Jensen and Triumph.

Alongside people modelling vintage fashion from across the eras, there’ll be reenactors, Star Wars characters, superheroes and cosplayers.

There will also be live music on the Gloucester Goes Retro stage and the chance to have a go at swing dancing too.

Local shops, restaurants, pubs and attractions will be joining in the fun as well, with retro-inspired shop front displays and vintage uniforms.
