What is Wild Wild West Con?Wild Wild West Con is Arizona’s first steampunk convention-festival. We are breaking the barriers of the hotel based convention by placing the core of our event within Old Tucson Studios. We are set to an active story line that takes place in the fictional town of Rusted Gear in 1896 during its centennial celebration. Rusted Gear is hosting a number of events during their centennial celebration including: music concerts, dinner theater, tea party, charity fashion show, art show, mercantile pavilion, street parade, street performers, high noon dual competition, fast draw competition, gaming parlor, live action stunt shows, cabaret saloon shows, ghost tours, masquerade ball, mad scientist lab, costume contests, courtroom discussion panels, how to workshops and much more.
What is Old Tucson Studios?Old Tucson Studios is an active working movie studio set that during its off time is transformed into a working theme park. Some of the movies shot here are Tombstone, Wild Wild West, The Three Amigos and a host of others. The studios have live action stunt shows, saloon cabaret shows, street performances, rides, a working stable with horse rides available, a full size steam train on site and much more.
Why Old Tucson Studios?Refer to “What is Old Tucson Studios?” first. If that didn’t answer your question imagine being able to take photos against period correct buildings and props. Now add to that zero commercial buildings or structures then drop in a beautiful desert backdrop.
Does Wild Wild West Con have a host hotel?Yes we do, Hotel Tucson City Center. Some of our night time entertainment will be held at the host hotel. See our venues page for more information about room rates and the benefits that come with staying at our host hotel.
Is Wild Wild West Con strictly wild west steampunk?No, we love all varieties of steampunk: Purist Victorian, Neo-Victorian, Goth Victorian, Post Apocalyptic, Weird West Punk, Purist Western, Diesel Punk, Cyber Punk or whatever your style you are welcome at Wild Wild West Con. We have a zero tolerance for no tolerance.
