As 2010 draws to a close tonight, it’s time to start planning your adventures for 2011. 2010 was a great year for Steampunk and from the looks of events already being planned, 2011 is going to be be an even better year.
Before I started blogging, I always seemed to find out about events too late to attend or after they had happened. This, of course, didn’t really help me to get out to Steampunk events and meet people. To help you make those all important plans, today’s post is a quick list of all of the major Steampunk conventions of which I am presently aware in the works for 2011. I’m sure more information will follow as the events approach, but this is just to help you start planning for another year of Steampunk adventure.
