The Steampunk World’s Fair is firing up pistons and stoking the blast furnace in anticipation of a 6th year in Piscataway, New Jersey! Wondrous sights, sounds and adventure from an era of Scifi/Victorian super science await children of all ages this May 15th through 17th.
Visitors may explore two hotels filled to overflowing (quite literally, as we use the courtyards too) with craftspeople, costumers, exotic teas, artists, writers and more. Around every corner you’ll find live music, programming to entertain or spark your intellect, circus performers and our costumed guests, which are a spectacle all their own! Grab a costume and join the fun, or just come as you are and enjoy. We promise a full day of fun!
Some of this year’s show highlights include:
A full lineup of panels including “O Gothic Novel How I Cannot Help But Love Thee”, “Poison Apples and Pretty Witches”, “Field Guide to the Cthulhu Mythos”, ” Superhuman: Stories of Houdini” and a trio of bone chilling presentations on Edgar Allan Poe
