Palmwoods is coming alive with the sound of Rockabilly music, hotrods and motorbikes as the Festival takes over the main street in Palmwoods and Ricks Garage becomes the centrepiece to showcase all that is Kustom Kulture*.
Kustom Kulture is an American neologism used to describe the artworks, vehicles, hairstyles and fashions of those who drove and built custom cars and motorcycles in the USA from the 1950s through to today. It was born out of the hot rod culture of Southern California of the 1960s (thanks to Wikipedia).*
Besides all the flashy cars and bikes, you can expect to see Pin Ups - who's going to be the next Miss Time Warp - Market Stalls, Bands, Food, a Kids corner and plenty of giveaways.
Gates open to the public at 10.00am and for a gold coin donation, you'll get all the rockabilly fun under the sun.
Cars and Bikes Registrations are now open

Due to limited space availability at this year's Festival, it is expected that not all vehicle applications will be accepted, so you'll have to be quick. The Time Warp Festival aims to create a one-of-a-kind environment that incorporates all things Kustom Kulture and as a result, will cap the year for car entrants to pre-1970. Careful consideration will be given by event organisers to ensure a wide selection of vehicles for the festival. ALL Motorbikes are welcome.
Car Entry $20 ($25 includes early exit); and Bike Entry $15 ($20 includes early exit)
Entry includes a coffee voucher for participating cafes in the street on the day AND an entry into the major raffle draw.
Entry is strictly 8.00am - 9.30am
Exit is 5.00pm
(Early exit is available on request)
