There’s a new convention that’s been recently added to the ever growing list of Steampunk conventions. GEARCon, Portland’s first Steampunk convention, will be held at the Crowne Plaza Portland from July 22 through the 24th.
There’s already been a plethora of guests and merchants confirmed for this young convention. Registration for GEARCon is currently $30 for the entire weekend pass, but prices will go up on April 10, so be sure to get your pass soon. Visit the FAQ for any further inquires you may have regarding the convention. I’ll be sure to keep you up to date as developments arrive for what is to be a fantastic con.
Portland’s Steampunk scene has been the topic of a number of recent posts here, including an article on Steampunk in Portland and an interview with Vagabond Opera, who are this year’s musical headliners for GEARCon, so if you’ve never experienced Portland Steampunk, this is a fantastic opportunity to see it first hand.
