2020 - 2021 Steampunk

 Well it's been a bit quiet the last year or so apart from Steamfest 2020 early on before the major lockdowns. 

 

And once again in 2021 after the worst of the virus in Tasmania, Steamfest again. And then the Franklin House fair had a few Steampunk folk in attendance .

Maybe the Evandale Penny Farthing races would be a good day for a Steampunk outing (cancelled for 2021 but should be back in 2022 for their 40th anniversary) ?

The plans (quite tentative so far) for George Town are for a Steampunk Promenade in Regent Square, maybe a brass band, a folk band and a punk band, tea and tea pot racing and promenading in splendid steampunk costumes. Whether this happens in 2021 or 2022 depends on how the world goes, Steamfest's covid-safe outdoor event went off with out any reported problems, so gives one a bit of hope for sooner rather than later... 

Here is an example poster: 


Anyhow check back later see how it goes

A Splendid Steampunk Sunday

It doesn't look like Steampunk Tasmania will have a festival this year, so in lieu we would like to invite Steampunkers to the George Town area for an afternoon at some of our historical attractions (and the steampunk art show) , here is the poster...

Hope to see you here 24th November
STEAM ON !

See Mousehammer's photos from the day.

Steampunk Tasmania Festival

 

Oh dear,  steampunktasmania.com.au seems to be offline at the moment, so in the mean time visit  Mousehammer's Adventures in Realm 025 : Some photos from Steampunk Tasmania Festival 2018 in George Town.

Another sample of Tasmanian Steampunk nonsense was the Wunderkammer - Steampunk Art show at the Watch House Gallery in George Town, Tasmania. The show finished on Nov 25 2019 but you can see a bit of what it looked like here.
