Rockabilly Meets Tiki At Vintage Garage On Sunday: Dress For Success in a Costume Contest

More than 100 of the Midwest’s best vintage collectors & dealers will bring the dream of south seas and cuffed jeans to life at the July 19 edition of Vintage Garage Chicago (5051 N. Broadway, Chicago) featuring everything rockabilly and tiki. Shoppers are encouraged to show up dressed to the nines for the rockabilly Best Dressed awards, featuring prizes from Broadway Antique Mall, Fat Cat and other neighborhood favorites. The Vintage Garage Chicago is open from 10a.m. until 5p.m.

Anyone in a rockabilly or tiki getup can enter the day’s Best Dressed contests between Noon and 2p.m. – just have your photo taken at the front gate. Categories include Best Outfit, Best Female Outfit, Best Male Outfit and Best Couple. Renowned rockabilly expert Jennifer Greenburg, author of The Rockabillies and Revising History, will judge the looks, with special emphasis on originality, style and overall dedication.
