Galveston Steampunk Festival
For those wondering what on Earth happened to Steampunk, Galveston, Texas would like to say: Hold my Absinthe! While the retro-future sci-fi subgenre has moved to the coast, it’s far from retired.
The Galveston Steampunk Festival offers a family friendly program filled with entertainment, exhibits, vendors, presenters, games and much more! Chug over to the Galveston Railroad Museum for a step back in time through machines, performances, music, costumes, lectures, and more. The extensive history of mechanical innovation displayed at the Galveston Railroad Museum embodies the steampunk spirit. Galveston was built by Victorian industrialists, who used new machines and new fabrication methods to drive economic development.
Galveston is the perfect backdrop to explore the industrial history that informs our curiosity today. Come dress up and revel in retrofuturistic technology and aesthetics inspired by 19th-century industrial steam-powered machinery.Read More at Galveston Steampunk Festival
