Jailhouse Rock Festival
The JHR Festival is one of Australia’s longest running Rock’n'Roll Festivals, a true celebration of everything great about the 50′s and 60′s era.
Created in 1995 as a not for profit, incorporated body, as a celebration of all things rock’n'roll; the music, the dancing, the fabulous fashion, classic motorcycles & cars and of course, the Hot Rods! All the iconic items and themes of the fabulous 50’s & 60’s are celebrated over the weekend in Ararat.
The JHR Festival has been conducted by a volunteer committee as an annual event for the last 23 years with the support of the Ararat Rural City Council, and generous sponsorship from local & regional businesses.
So dust off the dance shoes, polish the Hot Rod, dress to impress and please accept our invitation to join us in Ararat from Thursday 17 March to Sunday 19 March 2017!
