Ironfest is an absolute joy. Steampunk, cosplay, blacksmithing, jousting, the wonderfulness just doesn’t stop. From science fiction through to medieval reconstruction with stops at the Napoleonic wars and archery competitions along the way. It’s just great. The promotional video really has nothing to do with the day itself, but gives a great sense of what it’s all about.
Ironfest 2016 is on April 15-17. Tickets can be purchased here. It is in Lithgow and invariably swings between boiling hot and freezing cold – but, hey, nothing is perfect. It is immense fun and really worth a geeky visit.
