The Fifties Fair 2016

The Fifties Fair celebrated 21 years today at Rose Seidler House.

It was a fun day celebrating all things 1950’s with swinging music, authentic fashion and dancing demonstrations.

The tone of the day was set right from the start with transport between Turramurra Station and the Fair in restored buses provided by Sydney Bus Museums. Beautifully restored classic cars lined nearby roads and it was lovely to wander Rose Seidler House, an iconic 50’s home which still contains its original furniture. ​

We had a fantastic day out but heads up if you’re thinking of attending next year.  I recommend taking plenty of cash as some stallholders didn’t accept card and a picnic as there weren’t many food venders and the lines were long.

A little info about Rose Seidler House….

Rose Seidler House has survived the test of time since it’s completion in 1950.  Integrating architecture, art and technology in a bold and optimistic way.  Today, still surrounded by bushland with panoramic views of Ku-ring-gai Chase National Park, the house is one of the finest examples of mid-20th-century modern domestic architecture in Australia with its furniture and fittings forming one of the most complete and intact post World War II design collections in public ownership.

Rose Seidler House is currently cared for by Sydney Living Museums. The property is open to visitors.
