It’s Old West meets science fiction at Old Cowtown’s Steampunk weekend event, May 21 and 22, 2022.
Victorian-inspired science fiction will take over the old cow town for the day. You’ll see lots of costumes, zany inventions, and futuristic 19th century marvels. They’ll also have food available for purchase, vendors, and lots of fun.
Here’s the fun description of Steampunk Day from Old Cowtown Museum’s Facebook page:
Break out your best bib and hold on to your penny farthing (you know, those huge wheeled bicycles) as Cowtown travels to the days of future past. Encounter live steampunk music and performers of the steampunk variety. (Special appearance by The Scallywags on Sunday only!)
