The 'McDonalds Victor Harbor Rock n Roll Festival' takes to the streets this weekend and it all kicks off on Friday, September 13, with a classic car display at McDonald's, Victor Harbor from 10am until 1pm.

The weekend activities will feature live bands, dancing, entertainment for the whole family, market stalls and hundreds of classic cars on display.

The event, now in its 12th year is presented by the City of Victor Harbor and Mayor Moira Jenkins said she was very excited about this year's event.

"We've had so much support from sponsors, as well as the local community, which has really embraced the festival as an important part of this city's event calendar.

Music lovers and car enthusiasts come from all parts of Australia to this festival, which is now recognised nationally. It's a great family day out and all activities during the day are free to the public," Dr Jenkins said.

Saturday's entertainment will begin with the 'Shannons Show and Shine' at 9.30am when hundreds of classic and muscle cars along with brightly coloured hot rods will arrive in town.

These vehicles will be positioned along Ocean Street, Warland Reserve and the adjacent precincts.

Event coordinator of the Victor Harbor Historic Motor Vehicles Club and Director of the Show and Shine Event Graham Withers said there has been a huge increase in the vehicle interest for this year's festival event.

"There's been a steady flow of entries coming in and we believe we will have record entries. For those vehicle owners who enter on the day, I urge them to arrive early to ensure they have a display position as there is a limit to the amount of vehicles that we can fit into the area," he said.

On Saturday and Sunday, there'll be two main stages featuring continual live music, entertainment, singers and bands.

The Ocean Street stage will kick off at 10.30am and the Warland Reserve stage at 11am on Saturday and Ocean Street at 11.30am Sunday with the Warland stage beginning at 11am on that day.

Live bands at this year's festival include the Satellites, Rockit Combo, The Cadillacs, Lefty Roulette & the Joint Jumpin' Hepcats, Dead Lucky, Billy Rock Trio with young Max, the Shakers and the Lincolns.

Local hotels and other venues will feature live music on both Friday and Saturday nights.

Dozens of market stalls and trade sites will be open from 10am on both days and there will be a Miss Fleurieu Parade and the 'Shannons Show and Shine' Trophy presentation on the Sunday afternoon.

Visitors to the festival are invited to dress in rock 'n' roll gear and join the parade at 1.20pm as great prizes may be won.

For those wishing to continue to party the night away, there'll be evening entertainment on Friday and Saturday nights in the Bank SA Marquee on Warland Reserve from 7pm until 11pm.
