As if the Blue Mountains region isn’t charming enough, the Lady Luck Festival brings a splash of colour, chrome and Kulture with a ‘K’ to the area each year in January. Hosted by the historic Carrington Hotel, the one-day shebang has been powering on since 2009, a much-loved festival by locals, and a warming tribute to its founder, the late Karl Percival, who was a long serving staff member. Friends and festival goers are encouraged to support the Black Dog Institute each year in his honour.

“The hotel is 140 years old this year; it’s nice to see that it is still in use as a hotel as it was originally intended,” said Marketing Manager Diana Hofland. “We’re on the main street of Katoomba and the hotel has been instrumental in many events that happen in town.”

Lady Luck is all of our favourite Kustom Kulture elements rolled into one big Saurday, from the car and motorcycle show to vintage markets, the Miss Lady Luck and Little Miss Pageants, and of course, live music.

“This is one of the biggest festivals on our calendar. It draws a crowd from all over Sydney, but it’s also an opportunity for locals and visitors to get dressed up, celebrate all things kustom kulture, and just have a really good day.”

Plans are already underway for Lady Luck Festival  in early 2024 and you’re invited! Visit for the lowdown on this beautiful venue and let them know you’re coming!
