The long wait will soon be over for many steampunk fans eager to congregate in the eastern U.S., as three events are scheduled for this weekend: The Key City Steampunk Festival in Central Pennsylvania, the Southern Maine Steampunk Fair at the Brick Store Museum, and MegaCon in Orlando.
The organizers previously announced that they would hold off on selling tickets until they were sure they could run the convention within safety protocols. This year’s theme is “Cthulhu vs. The Martians.”
The online festival will include appearances by Frenchy and the Punk, The Eternal Frontier, A Halo Called Fred, and more. It replaces an in-person festival held annually in historic Belvidere, New Jersey.
Here’s a look at successful steampunk-related Kickstarter campaigns completed during the first half of the year. They include big hauls for Roxley Games, Antler Studios, Electropunk, and Benjamin McLennan, plus a new album from This Way to the Egress.
