Street Machine Summernats 34 has been postponed until January 2022
Since 1988, for the first time ever, there will be no Summernats held in Canberra in January in 2021!
“ACT Health is using Exhibition Park as a COVID-19 testing facility until the end of November and can’t confirm we’ll have our venue back [in time], which is an unmanageable risk to our event,” says ’Nats co-owner Andy Lopez.
“Combined with ACT Health’s recently released protocols that exclude outdoor multi-day festival events of more than 5000 people, a pathway to a January Summernats [in 2021] is impossible.
“It feels very weird saying that, now that the decision has been made, but we’ll party like crazy at Summernats in January 2022. Tickets and entries already purchased for Summernats will automatically transfer to the January 2022 event.”
After that, the team will head to Rockhampton over the Easter long weekend, 2-5 April, for the inaugural Rare Spares Rockynats. And with over 350 entries already, plans are well afoot for Red CentreNATS #7, 3-5 September.
There are also rumours that the team are working on two other shows in WA and Victoria.
