Federation Marong Picnic

Veteran, Vintage & Classic Cars, Engine Display & Tractor Trek.

Held at the Malone Park Recreation Reserve, Malone Park Road, Marong, Victoria. Entry off the Calder Highway (A79) or the Calder Alternative Highway (A790).

The picnic day is sponsored by the Federation of Vintage, Veteran and Classic Car Clubs of Victoria. Gates open at 8:00 am so come along any time after that. Always a good event to catch up, and especially for those living in the northern and central parts of Victoria.

For free entry into the oval, show your Packardian which mentions the Marong Picnic as part of the Club's official events.

Display vehicles only are allowed entry to the oval. Non-display vehicles are to be parked outside the oval perimeter.

No Vehicle movement on the oval between 10.30 am to 1 pm.

Catering by Rotary on site but bring your own picnic if you want to avoid the queues.

6-7th September 2024

The venue for this weekend event is at 28 Hovell St, Avenel. We hired it several years ago and had a very enjoyable weekend there.  It is a large barn-like construction that has been divided into 16 motel-style rooms, plus a large communal area and kitchen. Each room has been named as one of a number of businesses in a village.

The cost is $140 per night per room. Bookings are to be made with John Payne (0418 379 391 or johnpayne25@bigpond.com).  Payment, also to John Payne, is required three weeks in advance as PACA (Vic) has to pay our hosts in  advance as well.

Some rooms have already been booked. Those with one queen bed and available are Fire Station, Bakery, Barber, Butcher, Lock-up and Iron Monger. Those with two single beds (ground floor) are Police, General Store and Mayor. Those with two single beds (upstairs) are Maid and Butler. Let John know your choice of room when you book.

The program for the weekend will be detailed in the August Packardian and on this website.

16-17th November 2024

Once again we are looking for volunteers to take a 2-hour shift on one of the entry gates and also to man the PACA (Vic) trading site. Individual contact will be made with members during the next few months.

Please set this date in your diary.

This year we are planning to have a catered event for Christmas, rather than meeting at a member’s home. Further details will be provided in future Packadians and on the website.
