What better way to Keep Austin Weird than to honor one of the greatest works of cinematic horror with its very own festival? We celebrate 90 years since the endearing Count Orlok, also known as Nosferatu, was first released on US soil on June 3rd, 1929. What better setting to embrace all things Vampire than Austin, fondly nicknamed Bat City? Nosferatu Festival is a gathering of fans for the mutual admiration of this masterpiece by way of artwork, music, food, drink and general revelry. The Fest is our way of bringing together people spanning all age groups, all cultures and subcultures, and even those alive and undead.
Nosferatus preview premiered on March 4th 1922 and was planned as a large society evening entitled Das Fest Des Nosferatu or Festival of Nosferatu and guests were asked to arrive dressed in costume. 97 years later and we shall continue that tradition and bring the world Nosferatu Festival, complete with our encouragement of coming in costume as well. This encouragement will take the form of a costume contest and will have multiple categories for Nosferatu, Vampire, or supporting cast alike. Not very handy with make up? We will have make up resources on hand to transform you into a Vamp or victim, the choice is yours!
Nosferatu lends itself to amazing artwork and we are curating a gallery of pieces that will entrance all of our festival attendees. Much of this gallery will be original pieces with prints that are going to be only available to purchase at Nosferatu Festival. Taking home a momento from your experience is always exciting and we will have a plethora of Nosferatu merchandise created exclusively for those attending. We also plan to have various themed drinks, food, photo ops, and games for people to partake in.
Due to an overwhelming buzz from all the fans of Nosferatu that want to be involved we are looking into ways of accommodating the vendors that have reached out to us and will respond once we have word on this sort of opportunity. Please feel free to share our love of Nosferatu with your friends and also contact us if you feel compelled to be involved or can help in some way to make this a celebration to remember.
