Harry Seidler probably never imagined, when he built a house for his mother in the late 1940s, that three-quarters of a century later it would be a draw-card for vintage enthusiasts, hipsters and rockabillies.
Now an annual event, the Fifties Fair combines stalls selling vintage and reproduction fashion, accessories, vinyl, furniture and objects, live music (including headliners the Pat
Capocchi Combo), dancing, and food by Porteño. The jewel in the crown of the event is of course Rose Seidler House, one of the best examples of mid-century modern design in Sydney.
Managed by Historic Houses Trust, the house is an iconic 50s home, with its original furniture and fixtures. Learn more about caring for your dream 50s-style home from Sydney Living Museums curator Joanna Nicholas.
There will be a free shuttle bus all day running between Turramurra Station and Rose Seidler House.
Sunday 25 August 10.00am — 4.00pm
