There’s a new Steampunk convention preparing for its debut in April of 2011, the Oklahoma Steampunk Exposition. This convention will take place on the weekend of April April 15th, 16th and 17th at the Stone Garden Hotel in Oklahoma City. At the time that this post was written, it does not appear that there is a discounted convention price for rooms at the Stone Garden Hotel. Hotel rooms are normally 87.50 for the weekend rate.
Programing is, of course, still being worked on, as we are currently eight months from seeing the start of this event, but to see what is already planned, and to keep tabs on new developments, be sure to visit the Programming section of their website. You can also see a current list of the guests here.
Applications are being accepted for vendor and artist space and can be purchased here. There’s lots of different options, so if you are a Steampunk artist or merchant, be sure to check out all of your options. All sales for a booth or table at the Exposition end on February 28th, 2011, so be sure to book early as space is also limited!
And if you wish to attend, tickets are now on sale and offer a single day admission, a weekend admission, and a Friend of the Oklahoma Steampunks level. Ticket descriptions, prices, and the place to purchase tickets can be found here.
It remains to be seen if I will be attending this convention. Some of the members of the Society have expressed an interest in making the trip up, so I may decide to go with them on this adventure. I’ll keep you all updated if I finalize any plans!
