Being a lover of the Victorian Era we want to share in our own way the amazement of the past, the chaos of the time travel and the Fantastic in the future... from Lace & Mourning to Apocalyptic & leather.... Does what we wear define us ? or who we truly are exudes from us...

"Never tell a Steampunk 'That doesn't exist' unless you want them to invent it."

Welcome to The Steampunk World’s Fair! We are the largest Steampunk festival in the world, but our core is not about size – it’s about being a warm, welcoming place. We take one crazy weekend in May and make it a home to music, entertainment, joy, and thousands of people.

Some are Steampunk veterans, some are brand new; some are really seriously, some are really silly, some are sure and some are just curious. We welcome you all! You will not find such a smorgasbord of Steampunk delights brought together anywhere else in the world. Come in! Come be a part of it! We’d love to meet you!

BONUS UPDATE: With just under $9,000 in Kickstarter funding, our Steampunk Rock Opera, Absinthe Heroes, will be at the show! You can get tickets on the World's Fair website, and you can get more details atwww.absintheheroes.com.
