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 year marks the 4th year since Time Warp's inauguration which, back in 2015 was held as a private event to celebrate everything that makes Ricks Garage a Sunshine Coast institution - rockabilly music, hot rods and pin-up girls and dress. The Palmwoods Community and Business Association saw the potential in the Time Warp Festival to boost the local economy, enticing them to join forces with Ricks Garage. In 2016 (only the second year of Time Warp), Margaret Street in Palmwood's was closed for this increasingly popular festival, allowing more than seven thousand local and interstate visitors to enjoy the day.

Palmwoods Main Street is where all the action is at!


In 2017 (this was the year we first experienced Time Warp), the Sunshine Coast Council's Major Events Department was engaged to support the 2017 Time Warp, which proved invaluable in taking the Time Warp Festival to the next level. Time Warp received sponsorship from Indian Motorcycles and many other local organisations. The Palmwoods Scouts, Palmwoods Rural Fire Brigade and Palmwoods State School were amongst the fund-raisers at Time Warp 2017. With the visitors to Time Warp Festival swelling to 11,000 this ensured much-needed funds were raised for this small community.

She is a babe, a cutie pie, a cover girl, she's the girl that all girls aspire to be - she is the pin-up girl! You know the one, the all-natural American (hmmm, Australian) sweetheart that caught the eye of travelling seamen and endeared herself to millions. Well, she is back! At the 2018 Time Warp Festival Miss Pin-Up will be strutting her 'stuff', with hourglass figures, perfectly coiffed hair and risqué attitude that popularised the pin-up style.

Time Warp would not be Time Warp without the beloved Pin-Up competition. Ten fabulous, fierce, feminine females will hit the stage in order to win your vote for Miss TimeWarp 2018! Click here to view the ten finalists for Miss Timewarp 2018 and show your support.

It appears that for the 2018 Time Warp Festival parking will be plentiful - phew this is fantastic news as last year we did find it a tad tedious, looking for a park. Signs will lead you to designated areas run by the Rural Fire Brigade - all the organisers ask, is that in return for parking, a gold coin donation for the Brigade's services would be very much appreciated. Pay a gold dime and avoid a fine!

The Time Warp Festival is proudly sponsored by Ricks Garage and is definitely one that the whole family can get excited about. We still have a few weeks to visit some Op Shops in and around the Sunny Coast to make sure that we are all rigged out in perfect rockabilly/vintage gear.
