Bring a Parasol 

Curiosity satiated at analog invention

Step right up! Come one, come all to the Wunderkammer, the steampunk celebration of mayhem and mischief. See death-defying feats of strength and ingenuity at the handcar races along the railroad tracks, painted ladies (and men) in full costume of a forgotten era in a parallel universe, and hear music, glorious music, fill the air like the Sirens' song of mythology.

Not old enough to remember the ancient Greek tales or 19th-century futurology? There's still plenty of wonder and amazement in the children's midway, with bounce houses of rare breed, a true Ferris wheel and the fantasmic Sonoma County Children's Museum.

And what celebration of imagined society would be complete without a full stage of music? The Church Marching Band makes merriment, and jubilation flows from the main stage courtesy of Araan Harris & the Farm Band, Dginn, Baby Seal Club and Mr. December and the Local Honey Swing Band, and the Hubbub Club makes more music most magnificently whilst traipsing about.

Splendorous consumables abound, including dogs which are hot, cicles that are pop and artisan candies from Confounding Confections. Bubbly brew fermented by Lagunitas Brewery or Revive Kombucha provide a bodily buzz. The Wunderkammer goes old-timey on Sunday, Aug. 25, in Railroad Square, Santa Rosa. 11am–6pm. $10.
