Steampunk Victoriana Fair Postponed


Have you ever heard of the term, “Steampunk”? Steampunk is a fun artistic movement that blends the classical Victorian era with industrial progress. There are steampunk movies, music, costumes and festivals and the commonality between them all is that they portray steam, pipes, tubes, gears, advanced mechanised accessories, and devices.

Sadly, but not surprisingly, the Goulburn Mulwaree Council have decided to postpone Goulburn’s Steampunk Victoriana Fair, which was due to be held this October, due to the ongoing COVID-19 restrictions.

The event will now be held between the 11th – 13th March 2022.

Mayor Bob Kirk explained, “Unfortunately with the case numbers still growing in NSW it is just not feasible to continue the planning work for Steampunk. The event attracts people from right around NSW and from as far as Tasmania, Victoria, Queensland and the Northern Territory, and at the moment it is hard to see the borders being open by early October.”

Julianne Salway, Council’s Museums Officer and the event coordinator for Steampunk Victoriana Fair, said “We’re very disappointed not to be able to hold the event as planned this year, but we are pleased we have only had to postpone until March 2022 which is not too far away.

“I hope that we will get the same stallholders and performers back in March, and by then will be able to welcome people from around Australia once again.”
