Steampunk Chicago

What, pray tell, is Steampunk Chicago?

At Steampunk Chicago, we are diligently working to create an inspiring outlet for steampunk creatives and thinkers based in Chicago and worldwide. We are a portal to Steampunk, Neo-Victorian, Holmsian and Dickensian goings on within the Chicagoland area as well as greater national Steampunk events.
