A very popular weekend from previous Festivals, Steampunk Weekend – September 21th and 22nd – features brass and copper clockwork and steam-powered inventions that go far beyond 1800’s technology. Patrons will see lots of goggled tinkerers tinkering with their wacky, before-their-time inventions and dressed in their best Steampunk garb. This year’s Festival will feature dancing, live music with AUTOMATON, and costume and invention contests.
