Northwest Steampunk Events

In the wake of Steamcon’s departure, people have been asking what else they can do.  I have created a Facebook group for announcements, but here is a list of some of them as well.  Do follow the links for more information.  I hope to see you at many of these wonderful events.

Steamcon is no more

On Sunday we got word that the new board had decided to close up shop.  Martin and I completely understand the reasoning.  You can read a more detailed explanation here. As you can well imagine, I am deeply saddened.  I have been trying to write down my thoughts, but having little luck.  I will try again in a bit.

Please don’t think that Steamcon was the only steampunk in the northwest.  If you are on Facebook, I have been working on an announcement group for events.  You can see it here. I will make a post about events here soon.

Thank you for all your support throughout the five wonderful years we ran.
