OSF Welcomes for their first time at our festival “The Barrelhouse Wailers!!!

“The Barrelhouse Wailers play a collection of fun, upbeat New Orleans classics, with a swagger that is unique to the french quarter. Just like the street performers of Bourbon street, this acoustic group has you tapping your toes and snapping your fingers. And it can’t be authentic ‘New Orleans’ without a Tuba, Clarinet, and a homemade drum kit.” – Adam Randall, Squashed Grapes


FIRST STEAMworks comes to 2017 Steampunk Fest!

Our event continues to grow and include more interest from everyone! This year we are more than excited to announce that representatives of local high schools throughout Ventura County will be participating in our Steampunk Fest. On both Saturday and Sunday students from at least 6 local High Schools will be displaying their robots and their capabilities in our Steampunk Robot Arena. Make sure to check them out and engage in this next generation of technology and their creators. #OxnardSteampunkFest #Robots

What is Steampunk you ask?? It is a blend of the Victorian Era and technology with a bit of Science Fiction and Fantasy….think of airships, goggles, jet packs, corsets, top hats, parasols, combined with imagination and a wee bit of whimsy. Enjoy the fun with your kids, friends, and the rest of your family at Heritage Square.

Enjoy the mad, mad world of Steampunk!
