steamfest 2022 cancelled

burton automotive hunter valley steamfest cancelled for 2022.

Due to the recent flood event experienced in Maitland and the Hunter Valley, Maitland City Council is deeply disappointed to announce that Burton Automotive Hunter Valley Steamfest 2022, has been cancelled.  

The flood event has caused damage to infrastructure across the city, including the rail network and other key event sites. Recovery efforts are expected to take many months to complete, and whilst it is expected the rail line will be at least partly operational prior to Steamfest, the network will need to prioritise critical rail services to support the movement of freight.   

This decision has not been made lightly but, given the extent of the impact of the flood event, it is important that Council’s focus in on the repair of key infrastructure and the city’s recovery.   

Steamfest will return to celebrate it’s 35th anniversary on 22 and 23 April 2023.
