Get Your Steam On: Steampunk Events the World Over

If you’ve been reading all of these Steampunk Month posts and wondering how you can get involved—or at least observe the phenomenon in its natural habitat—then you may be in luck: there’s a ton of exciting events already taking place or coming soon that will cater to your every desire. Check below the cut to see if there’s one near you.

The list below contains links to each event’s official website and its Tor.com events listing. If you plan to attend any of these events, click on the “Going?” link to register your intention and discuss the event with other Tor.com readers who will be attending.

I’m sure this list is far from complete, but that’s where you come in: if you’ve heard of any events that I’m missing, please let me know in the comments. I'll keep updating this page through at least the end of the month.

Liz Gorinsky is an editor at Tor Books. She is deeply sorry she cannot be in several places at once.

Your link for Steampunk World's Fair directs to the Nova Albion event. FYI the correct link is here: http://steampunkworldsfair.com/

I'm happy to say I'll be a guest artist at Steampunk World's Fair. I'm sure I'll meet many wonderful enthusiasts there.

If you find it appropriate for this list. I've a solo exhibit of my steampunk inspired works at Gifts Inn Gallery in Boonsboro Md, November 21 - January 3rd

Joshua @ 1: Got it!
iObject @ 2: I wish I could, but I don't know of anything. Where are you, Boston-area steampunks?
Nolly @ 3: Got it! Cool theme.
Brigid @ 4: Thanks for the correction. So many links--I'm surprised I only messed one up. And I'm happy to add your gallery show.
