Another big crowd expected to converge on popular Broke Village Fair and Vintage Car Display at McNamara Park

ONE of the region's most popular events is returning to Broke next month.

On Sunday, September 8, between 9am and 3pm, McNamara Park will be buzzing with excited car enthusiasts waiting to explore more than 300 vintage, veteran and classic cars, trucks and motorcycles.

And, what's even better, the not-for-profit community-run fundraiser is also expected to benefit the likes of local groups such as the Broke Fire Brigade, Anglican Church, Broke Public School and P&C, and the Singleton Scouts.

The annual Broke Village Fair and Vintage Car Display, which is sponsored by Bulga Coal and Singleton Council, will start from 9am with a Welcome to Country, followed by an action-packed line-up.

There'll be plenty to see, touch, taste and smell at this year's event, too.

Music, whip-cracking, chainsaw sculpting, kids' rides, petting zoo, magic shows, bush poetry and rocker cover car racing will keep the happy fair-goers entertained.

There are also market stalls, wine and olive tasting and fabulous food options.

Free mine tours to Bulga Open Cut will leave at 10am, 11.30am and 1.30pm.

Entry is by gold coin donation.
