Looking for a place where you can step back into a time machine and be a part of the greatest gathering of Steampunk enthusiasts in Arizona? Dust off your top hat and goggles and head over to the Wild West Steampunk Convention III being held on March 7th through March 9th, 2014 at Old Tucson, Arizona.
The Wild West Steampunk Convention III is “America’s first and only Steampunk convention and festival that takes place in a western-themed town and amusement park.” (In fact, it is a haunted western-themed town and amusement park!)
Old Tucson is the famous movie studio and amusement park built in 1939 and has been featured in over 300 movies and TV shows. Be on hand as Old Tucson is transformed into a Western-style Steampunk Theme Park for this gala weekend.
There will be concerts, street performers, special events, panels, workshops, rides, games, and out of this world entertainment for your merriment and pleasures! There will be over 80 panels and workshops at WWWC3. Learn about costuming, leatherworking, history, music and more! There will be Make & Take Workshops where you can create and build items for your costuming.
Look for the mercantile area with lots of vendors with the lasts fashions and gadgets, activities for children, and food to satisfy your hunger needs. Don't forget to purchase tickets for the evening concerts and activities, too!
Do you have to dress Steampunk to attend this event? Of course not! (But it adds to the fun!) If you are just getting started, be sure to see the Steampunk Fashion Show, and the Steampunk Costume Contest for inspiration! And don’t forget to sign up for the creative Make & Take workshops!
This event is hosted by the Arizona Steampunk Society, Arizona’s premier Steampunk organization!
