Impromptu adventuring, exploring our backyard and then putting pen to paper, hoping to entice you to try one, if not all, of our escapades, is my true reward!

This has to be one of the most spectacular Festivals on the Sunshine Coast - the Annual Timewarp Festival at Ricks Garage and I'm so excited as it's a real trip down memory lane.

Dust off the mothballs, pull out that retro gear and get ready to party!

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.

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.

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.
