"Put on your glad rags & be part of Vintage Weekend!"

Whanganui Vintage Weekend 2019 has taken fun to a whole new level. New to the programme is the Whanganui Vintage Dazzle Ball featuring the NZ Airforce Swingband; the theme is 1940s. Monday sees the introduction of the Vintage Push Trolley Racing and Raft Race. All this as well as the Vintage Weekend iconic events, Retro and Vintage markets, The Rivercity Caboodle, Riverside Shindig and the vintage favourite Wheels on Victoria Avenue Car Show where you can see vintage cars, classic cars, hot-rods and muscle cars.

More than just four wheel excitement, ZK-AWP Powhaitere, the first prototype DC-3, and the only surviving RNZAF World War II veteran aircraft still in front-line service, will grace the skies on Saturday and Sunday – with you on-board of course! For those with a love of trains the Pahiatua Railcar will be making scenic tours of the city as well.
