Update 3/14/18 – Don’t panic! Read on:
It’s just not possible to repair SPWF to the grandeur that the community justly expects in 6 weeks. That said, we have found someone who has stepped forward to run a smaller-scale event on those days so that the Steampunk community has an entertaining, fun, and casual event to attend. We, SPS, are in the midst of planning a new large-scale event for a future date that will be able to be held up to the lofty standards of SPWF. Communication has been spotty and we apologize for that. Here is the TL;DR:
- There will be a smaller-scale event held on May 4 – 6, 2018. It will be smaller scale and details are being fleshed out – expect a plan to be announced within 72 hours.
- SPS is planning a new event for the future, tentatively the fall, that will be better organized and better planned than what we could have done in 6 weeks or less.
- We would love your help, advice, and input on both of these events to make sure that you, the community, are happy with them. We admit that SPWF was too much for us to take on this quickly – and we are asking for your help to bring it back as much as we can for the future.
New and don’t know where to start?
No problem! First, we recommend reading about Steampunk in general, and then also about what the Steampunk World’s Fair is. Then, take a look at our Entertainment line-up and our Merchant roster to get an idea of the things you can expect to enjoy at our event. Our VIP & Add-on event listings are a good way to see all the extra, premium content we have to offer, too! Then, when you’re ready, take a look at our Buy Tickets page to join us at the next SPWF.
The Latest from our Curators
I have been working with my son, Brock (Blacksmith and owner of Warfire Forge) for over six years now creating all sorts of items and accessories. I have now decided to form and focus on my own shop. I specialize in hand made fabricated Steampunk, anime, fantasy, and historical items. I love to craft quality items that make people happy.
Tiki Tiki Board Games isn’t your average board game store. We offer the largest selection of new and pre-owned classic board games in the tristate area. Lost a pawn or a piece? We have you covered with a large selection of accessories and gaming equipment. We verify parts, pieces, and playability on all our pre-owned merchandise. Most are just $6 or $8! We also carry a wide assortment of new board and card games, as well as YoYos, and Kendamas. Have games that you aren’t playing anymore? Bring them in for cash or credit!
We create together out of our love for all things steampunk. Our creations range from weapons, to jewelry, to and even clothes. Every piece we create is unique and one of a kind.
Gadgetometers presents handcrafted items that whether you are a time traveler, vampire hunter, fairy friend or explorer will lend distinction to any persona. Our inventory includes theme related items like goggles, jewelry, hats, time machines, jetpacks, costume accessories and small vintage items.
Steampunk is our past and our future! It was slippery slope, the first time I cracked the back off a broken watch and started playing with the pieces. The mix of metals, shapes, and mechanical workings drew me down the rabbit hole, and I have been happily lost there for years. Society is waxing nostalgic, for the world we were promised by those late 19th century writers, and my work satisfies that longing.
