The Watch City Steampunk Festival is one of the largest steampunk gatherings in the U.S., typically drawing about 10,000 people. It’s held in downtown Waltham, Massachusetts, which is known as Watch City because it once was home to the Waltham Watch Company. Activities at the festival include educational presentations, craft vendors, cosplay, live music and more.
