Speakeasy ticket price goes up May 4

speakeasyHey.. you… yeah, you with the face….

Word’s coming down the alley that the Speakeasy’s about to get a little more exclusive. Seems the Boss is seein’ dollar signs, and supply makes demand, am I right? Seems tickets are runnin’ low, so on May 4th he’s gonna raise up the price a smidge. This is all secret stuff, so keep it under yer hat, but if you were on the fence about goin’ to the worst kept secret in town come the World’s Fair, now’s the time to make that call or else you are gonna pay for it.

Fightin, Singin, Dancin, and Drinkin… how is this a hard call to make unless you are the dullest doll in town?

Anyway, I gotta split, but don’t say I never warned ya ’bout nothin…

Speakeasy Tickets are currently $30. As of May 4, Speakeasy tickets will be $39. Act Now!

  • The Goblin Market is back! (Friday, VIP Tickets!)

    goblinmarketThe Goblin Market is back!  After a year’s hiatus, this intriguing evening of dark Victoriana returns to THe Steampunk World’s Fair!

    Please note: This is the VIP Event for The Steampunk World’s Fair on the Friday night of the weekend – May 13th. VIP Tickets for Steampunk World’s Fair are required for admission. Event contains burlesque and darker subject matter (Ages 16+). RSVP at the Facebook Event to share your excitement!


    The Goblin Market is an exhibition and staged show event that deals with a darker and fictional interpretation of what we refer to as Victoriana (1830-1900), and directly succeeding eras that blend surrealistic themes within a historical context. It draws symbolic inspiration of the Christina Rosetti poem of the same name in the concept of other worldly beings interacting with a human audience to create Faustian deals.

    The Goblin Market also reinvents the term “goblin” from its fairy and fantasy roots from folklore and legend. Rather than creatures of mischief and mild mayhem – these are elusive and otherworldly beings that have an insatiable desire for deal and bargain alike. The purpose of these deals is to slowly strip the human rube of their humanity and in some extreme cases, their life. Continue reading

  • Absinthe Heroes comes to The Steampunk World’s Fair!

    absinthe heroes 2015Absinthe Heroes comes to The Steampunk World’s Fair!

    Now that our Kickstarter is fully funded and complete, reaching multiple stretch goals, you can get tickets  ($45) directly through SPWF!

    Jeff Mach, co-creator of The Steampunk World’s Fair, wrote one of the first Steampunk rock operas, Absinthe Heroes, for the inaugural SPWF. Now he’s bringing it back in a gorgeous, splashy new production. Absinthe Heroes is darkly humorous, adventurous, and features wit, dash, daring, and chocolate. Its musical score was written by our acclaimed headliner Psyche Corporation. Absinthe Heroes has been described as “a riotous blending of the ridiculous and the sublime”; “mad science in theatrical form”, and “A Steampunk rollercoaster.”

    Now, Absinthe Heroes is not inherently a lavish show. It can be done – and has been done – with production values as simple as a couple of goggles, a ray gun, and one Large And Mysterious Switch. But… Steampunk is capable of such glorious pomp and puffery, such dizzying heights of the divinely over-the-top pageantry! This is how we want Absinthe Heroes to spring to life. Harnessing the creative services of Circuit 6, whose expertise has mad our stages come alive for many years – and with the generosity of friends, family, and fellow Steampunk-lovers – we can make Absinthe Heroes an iconic piece of Steampunk history!
    Tickets are available  through this website for $45.
