Wasteland Weekend sometimes stylised as WW, is an unofficial Mad Max costumed fan festival.


Wasteland Weekend is a Mad Max themed costumed festival that takes place annually in California. It has a heavy emphasis on immersion, asking all participants to come fully equipped in both post-apocalyptic gear and attitude (that said, WW is neither a cosplay nor LARP event).

Activities and displays are numerous on-site including: live themed music, Thunderdome brawls, stunt performers, post-apocalyptic vehicle displays, "Bartertown" merchants and wasteland casino.

The event is is considered an "expanded" version of the Mad Max universe, and welcomes elements from other similar post-apocalyptic franchises (many of which have derived from Mad Max), such as the video game series Fallout, and movie, The Blood of Heroes.
