After 14 years of celebrating, it is with a heavy heart that we announce that the time has come to bid farewell to our Lady Luck Festival. Whilst we understand the disappointment this may bring; our decision was not made lightly. However, it has become necessary due to several factors that have made it increasingly challenging to continue the event in its current form.
The Lady Luck Festival has always been a cherished event, however, the rising costs associated with the festival, including the expense of closing the streets and general operational costs, have placed a significant strain on our budget. In addition, the impacts of declining visitor numbers particularly amongst the younger generations have made it increasingly difficult to justify the expenditure.
Rockabilly culture will always hold a very special place in our hearts. While we have always strived to offer an exceptional experience, we recognise that our festivals must evolve to meet the shifting expectations of our community and visitors.
We would like to sincerely thank our supporters and sponsors, our fabulous stall holders, car enthusiasts, car clubs, residents, and visitors alike. Your dedication and enthusiasm have been instrumental in making this event a success. We would also like to thank Penny Finlay and pay tribute to Karl Percival both of whom were founding members of the Lady Luck Festival.

The Black Dog Institute is a not-for-profit organisation dedicated to improving the lives of people affected by mood disorders through methods such as clinical services, research, and education.
The term ‘Black Dog’ comes from the metaphor most famously used by Winston Churchill to describe his own depression. His famous ‘V’ for Victory salute is referenced in the logo as a symbol that depression can be overcome. The victory sign casts the shadow of a black dog which is a metaphor for a disorder that is constantly lurking in the background, however the emphasis is on the positive being more powerful than the negative.
