Steampunk Victoriana Fair Cancelled

Steampunk Victoriana Fair Cancelled
June 21, 2020

Goulburn Mulwaree Council has advised that the 2020 Steampunk Victoriana Fair will not proceed in light of COVID-19 restrictions and uncertainty around when restrictions on events and festivals may ease.

Steampunk mixes the industrial age with futuristic imaginations or how the future might have been imagined in the past.

Council has also determined that the budget for the 2020 event be transferred to an Events Reserve for use towards the 2021 event or an alternate event at the Goulburn Historic Waterworks.

Coordinators of the Fair, Julianne Salway and Angela Remington advised “we were looking forward to hosting this year’s Fair, however we understand why this decision was made. A multitude of considerations went into making this decision, in particular the health and safety of those involved in running the Fair, as well as that of the attendees.

“We look forward to planning a bigger and better Steampunk Victoriana Fair in 2021 and we can’t wait to welcome back the style, the flair, stunning creativeness and smiling faces”.

In light of this decision, the coordinators of the Steampunk Victoriana Fair plan to hold a ‘Makers & Inventions Market’ in March 2021 and comment that “we hope many of our Steampunk fans will be able to join us at the Market which will coincide with our March ‘Steaming Day’. We will release further information on this event as planning continues later in the year”. 

The 2021 Steampunk Victoriana Fair will be held on Saturday 16th and Sunday 17th October, 2021.

The retro-futuristic fair will have clothing, art and music on offer, and a chance to dress up in the genre that melds the classical Victorian era with industrial progress (and all things powered by steam).

The Steampunk Victoriana Fair will see an influx of characters wandering the grounds, complementing the Goulburn Historic Waterworks architecture and aesthetic with tours available of the building and steam engines.
