The League of S.T.E.A.M. (Supernatural and Troublesome Ectoplasmic Apparition Management), a.k.a. the "Steampunk Ghostbusters," is an American performance art troupe from Southern California. Popular in the steampunk community, it specializes in live interactive themed entertainment. The League of S.T.E.A.M. is modeled after the 1984 film Ghostbusters, translating the idea of a "paranormal pest control service" into a neo-Victorian steampunk setting.

The League has performed at conventions, steampunk festivals, nightclubs and corporate events, and has performed alongside such notable steampunk musical groups as Abney Park. They are known for their creative steampunk "inventions" (functional props), and have also been written about and interviewed as leading examples of steampunk style.
