Steampunk World’s Fair 2011

After a spectacularly successful debut this year, the Steampunk World’s Fair will return to New Jersey the weekend of May 20-22, 2011. Reservations for the new hotel in Somerset, NJ are being taken now; membership registration opens September 15th. What’s it all about?

Welcome to a three-day expedition into yesterday’s future! (And no, that doesn’t mean the present!) SPWF is the first East Coast event to welcome Steampunks, Neo-Victorians, Retro-futurists, Gas Lamp Fantasists, and any and all others who consider themselves part of steampunk into a weekend long festival celebrating all things steamy!

An interactive and social event for people of all levels of steampunk know-how (yes, even you sitting in the corner of the internet, not sure you know what steampunk is or if you even like it) to communicate, dance, exchange, and explore. Here, you will find representation of the art, culture, fashion, technology, history, gaming, and music of this fascinating and scintillating subculture and genre.

Say you enjoy the post-enlightenment of the Industrial Revolution, or Victorian Era upper-class sensibilities, or the mutated past merged with modern mentalities and counter-culture ethos. Maybe you like the skewed science of “What if?” and the historical settings, or you simply like to look dapper in your top hat. There is something here at the Steampunk World’s Fair for you!
