The convention will return in a somewhat reduced form, but attendees will still have plenty to keep themselves busy, including panels, workshops, social activities, live music performances, multiple costume contests, and more.
Makers, costumes, music, and more at the SF Bay Area steampunk convention
Steampunk enthusiasts in Northern California celebrated “Marvelous Makers”—and a return to in-person gatherings—as Clockwork Alchemy took place March 18-20 at the Hyatt Regency San Francisco Airport Hotel in Burlingame.
Two years ago, Clockwork Alchemy was one of the first steampunk events to be cancelled due to the Covid-19 outbreak. Now it’s back this weekend with many of the same special guests who were slated for 2020.
Attendees can look forward to an extensive program of presentations covering all aspects of geek culture, including steampunk. If you can’t make it to Atlanta, this year’s convention will offer multiple tracks of virtual programming.
The organizers will also reduce room capacities, eliminate onsite membership sales, and limit the audience for the Dragon Con Parade. They expect attendance to be half that of earlier conventions. But they’re also offering streaming memberships.
Organizers plan multiple channels of streaming content, including music, panels, and more
Dragon Con is happening online, and steampunk fans will find lots of programming for their entertainment and edification. The schedule includes musical performances as well as steampunk-themed panels and workshops. Content will stream for free.
