If collecting nick-knacks, viewing antiques and motors and supporting the community are your bag, then you won't want to miss the annual Hobby and Motor Show at the East Kurrajong School of Arts in May.

Put together by the East Kurrajong School of Arts, the event will feature an array of bargains and curiosities including classic and vintage vehicles, tractors, antique tools and machinery, local artists, crafts, and family and local history.

There will also be handmade jewellery, caravan miniatures, an NRMA display, plants, railway memorabilia, stamps and coins, vintage toys and games, woodworking, and a WWI display.

There will also be homemade refreshments and a BBQ including bacon and egg rolls, sausage and egg rolls, homemade soup, cakes and slices, coffee, tea, Milo and cold drinks.

On Saturday morning around 9am the Tractor Trek will arrive, having travelled from Freemans Reach. Trophies will be awarded for the Motor Show on Sunday.

East Kurrajong School of Arts secretary Ann Garrick said the event had been going for around seven years as the East Kurrajong Hobby Show and this year they also had the support of the Sydney Antique Machinery and Kurrajong Antique Machinery clubs.

"One of the best things is the fact that it supports the local community, which is why the local car clubs have been helping with it now," Ms Garrick said.

Lindsay Brown, president of the East Kurrajong School of Arts, said some of the highlights would be a light horse display, local jams and pickles for sale, a RAAF display, and wool spinning.

"We'll have a really good year this year," he said.

"We don't have many volunteers to help us but the members of the car club will be able to help us this year."

The Hobby and Motor Show will take place on Saturday and Sunday, May 15 and 16, 9am to 3pm at the East Kurrajong School of Arts, Stanley Park, East Kurrajong.

Entry is $4 for adults and kids under 15 are free.
