The Asylum Steampunk Festival is historically the world’s largest steampunk gathering. It’s traditionally held over the August Bank Holiday weekend at multiple locations in Lincoln, UK, in England’s East Midlands region. The event is produced by the Ministry of Steampunk, a volunteer organization that also puts on smaller events throughout the year.

The festival typically features multiple components: A program of workshops, performances, exhibitions, and other activities that require a wristband for entry; a series of special events that require separate tickets; and a free public festival with a steampunk market and live entertainment.
