Event Description

Steampunk in the Park 2012 will be held on Sunday, March 25th beginning at 2:00 PM and lasting until 6:00 PM at Atlanta's Piedmont Park. We will once again try to meet by the brick bandstand near the tennis center, but if that area is occupied we will likely set up on the grassy knoll across the pathway near the lake (where we ended up last year).
 
As usual, this is a potluck picnic, so please feel free to bring food or drink to share, or various and sundry dry goods (utensils, napkins, plates, cups, etc.). Trash bags will be provided so we can clean up after ourselves when the picnic is over. If you have a portable table to spare, we can always use those as well, but please don't feel pressured to bring anything if you're unable to do so. All you really have to do is show up!
 
This event is free and is a chance for everyone to get together and mingle in their steampunk finery. There are usually a few photographers on hand to capture the occasion and last year we were delighted by a visit from the Atlanta Street Fashion Blog. Dogs are allowed in the park but must remain leashed per local laws.
 
Free parking at the location can be limited, though Piedmont Park does have a pay-to-park deck nearby. It is occasionally possible to find free parking along surface streets surrounding the park, but this is not guaranteed. Please plan accordingly.
 
The event may be rescheduled due to inclement weather. If this is the case, we will give notice as soon as possible to minimize inconvenience.


Here's a link to a PDF map of the park.  Next to the spot marked "5" (the picnic shelters) on the map is a little triangle of pathways.  In the middle of this triangle is the brick bandstand where we will try to meet.  If it is occupied, then we'll cross to the oval shaped area near the lake directly to the right.

Driving directions to the park can be found on the park website here.  Please be prepared to pay for parking if parking on one of the surface streets is not available.  The event itself is free.  Parking may not be, however!

@Forest Betz  I think you should know that there may or may not be steampunks there... it is a rumor that can or can't be confirmed.... Just come and have a great time! 

OH and WATCH THIS... there will be a quiz. JKREMNANT : Web Series

K thanks for the answer. (and mentioning the parking I forgot about that)

Steampunk dress is encouraged, but feel free to come as you are.  This is a relaxed sort of event where we mostly get together to eat and chat.  Just bring yourself (and money for parking... the event itself is free, the parking deck is not, I'm afraid) and food or drink to share if you'd like, and enjoy!

I was wondering if there was a preferred form of dress for the picnic, and if there is or isn't could you please let me know.

I just joined the Steampunk Empire, but I learned about the picnic through the Brassgoggles forum. I would like to attend the picnic, is there anything in particular I should know?
