The Steampunk Faire @ the Domes: Explore alternative culture at Gardens & Gears!

Gardens & Gears: Steampunk Faire!

Experience an alternate past at this gadget-filled garden party. Enjoy an eclectic mix of costumed steampunk characters and vendors offering one-of-a-kind, gadget-filled garden party. See creative artists, entertainers, fashion designers, blacksmiths, musicians, jewelry designers, and other steampunks!

Mitchell Park Domes will hold this show from 9 AM til 4 PM on February 16th.  We will meet at 1 PM, giving enough time for the Sunday Brunch at Molly Cool's to let out so that everyone who wants to meet up can come!

In addition to the Steampunk Faire, the Domes will also have the Gas-light Express Garden & Train show.  G-scale trains wind their way along 600 feet of track though a Victorian landscape, in celebration of the industrialized world in the age of steam-powered technology.

What a great way to spend a Sunday afternoon.

See you soon!

    Meeting more new people was great. The Steampunk Faire exhibits/shops were a bit smaller than expected, but all-in-all it was fun and interesting experience. I'm glad I went.

    A very neat experience! I agree with Christina that I I wish there were a few more vendors but it was very neat! :)

    Two of the Domes were open and the third was closed but they gave a discounted price. The vendors were all really nice but it would have been even better if there were more of them. It was another fun time.

      I had no idea there was an app. Thank you. Alternately, we can always look for the group of people standing around who look a lot like their photos. :)

    This will be my first meetup with this group, and what a perfect event to meet some of you! Steampunk is an interesting sub-culture I have been wanting to explore more about!

    Not sure what to exactly expect from this event but I guess thats the whole idea!

    • Jason

      Because the open timeframe of 9 am to 4 pm conflicted with the Molly Cool's event, I changed the meetup time to 1 pm. I'd love for you to act as host for the get-together, since it was your idea. Please let me know if the timing doesn't work for you. Thanks for the suggestion!
