At Capital! Steampunk we can vive la France along with the best of them.
We met the organisers of the annual French Country Fair a while ago and they were very keen for the steampunk community to put in an appearance this year. No energetic activities are planned; just a general swan around the various stalls, with maybe a baguette or croissant or two to keep us going.
The fair is on at the Tauherenikau Racecourse, off Highway 2 between Featherston and Greytown, this weekend. It’s on both Saturday 11th and Sunday 12th, but we’re heading up on Sunday. Let us know if you can offer, or need, a ride. You can even catch a train from Wellington then a Featherston bus to the venue if you’re feeling adventurous.
There’s a bit more information on Eventfinder. The fair runs from 10am to 4pm. Allons, enfants; get there about 11.30 on Sunday and look for splendidly-dressed people.
