Event description

Description

If you have seen ‘The Greatest Showman’ or one of the Sherlock Holmes movies you would understand the style of dress. Victorian and Edwardian costumes with plenty of gadgets. And if you’ve caught yourself thinking, “I’d love an excuse to wear that,’ then you have come to the right place!

At the inaugural Steamfesta costume event, there will be photographers from three local photography clubs wandering the grounds to capture you in your finery. In addition, we have registered the event as a Guinness World Record attempt for the largest gathering of steampunks!

Currently, the record is held by a small town in New Zealand with 228 steampunks, we will need at least 229 people dressed in weird and wonderful steampunk gear and wearing a repurposed gadget to gain the record for the Fraser Coast and Australia.

Everyone is welcome to STEAMfesta wearing whatever they want but if you want to participate in the world record attempt please register your intent to participate now to minimise queues on the day.
