The Moscow Festival «Retro»
We want to show you a car not only as a technical device or a transport facility. Cars made in the thirties, forties, fifties of the 20th century are made by hands evidences of the past époque which disappeared forever but left us examples of its unique style.
It is to be noted that we don’t restrict ourselves to old cars but try to recreate the spirit of art deco in everything. In 2005 the festival changed its scene of action and became even more versatile. For the first time the retro golf tournament was conducted in the field of the Moscow City Golf Club, where clothes in fashion of Bobby Johns, Walter Hagen, Jean Sazerland and other great players of the twenties-thirties were an obligatory condition. Beside retro cars old gramophones and phonographs were displayed. Fashion of the past, demonstration of retro-movies, gala-concert with passionate tango and romantic jazz had a great success too. At the end of the festival there was a marvelous firework against the background of many-colored musical fountains.
Next year the V Moscow jubilee festival “Retro-Style” will be carried out in the Le Meridien Moscow Country Club. Following events will be on the program: old cars rally along the roads of the Moscow region, retro-golf tournament on the 18-holes field of champion class, retro-tennis tournament, gala-concert and much, much more.
Our festival is conceived and conducted for those ones who are able to estimate the beauty of old automobiles at its true worth, who understand and appreciate refinement and elegance of aristocratic sport arts, whom our displays will help to bring back the days of distant past.
We will be glad to see you at our festival “Retro”!
