It’s cold outside, but in a part of my heart is always in May.  I realized that the welcome that I used for the last Steampunk World’s Fair would actually work well for pretty much any Steampunk event.  So I thought I’d release it into the public domain.  Please feel free to take this and modify it for your own Steampunk festival, event, or show!

And behold! We come to the biggest and best Steampunk World’s Fair in all recorded history to date. Welcome! Steampunk and Steam-curious, Goth and Faerie, Geek and Rennie, Scholar and Artist, and Person Who Just Likes To Hang Out In Places Where There Are Lots of Goggles, it’s our pleasure to have you with us.

To our returning attendees, let me quote Oscar Wilde: “There are many pleasures in life, but few can match that of seeing a friend again.” To our new guests, let me quote Kermit the Frog: “Oh, I wish I were you people, seeing this movie for the first time!

Do remember to wander everywhere you can in our Fair! It’s meant as an adventure, and we have everything from big stages to quiet nooks. Encounter them all!

Do patronize our fine vendors; they are the lifeblood of any event. When they do well, we all do well.

Do be kind to hotel and event staff. If anyone, in turn, treats you with less than kindness, please let me know.

Our venue wants your good reviews! So if you have troubles during the weekend, and they aren’t fully resolved, please let us know!

And thank you for being here!

Yours truly,

Jeff Mach
