The Nova Albion Steampunk Exhibition

Today marks one month until the beginning of The Nova Albion Steampunk Exhibition at they Hyatt Regency in Santa Clara, California. This year’s theme is the Wild, Wild East and features Cherie Priest, Paul Guinan, Anina Bennet,Major Catastrophe and the Crew of the Neverwas Haul as this year’s guests of honor.

This year features a slew of excellent performers, makers, and speakers. A weekend pass is $50 and gets you in to all panels, presentations, exhibits, shows and goings-on! There are also day passes available for online purchase, so get them soon. You can also book your room at the convention hotel here. the hotel is nearly sold out for the weekend, but they have said there may still be a few rooms available, and you might still be able to get a discounted rate. Be sure to the convention’s booking code (G-STMP) or mention the Steampunk Exhibition, and they’ll give you the best rate they can. Today is the last day to book your room at the convention rate, so don’t delay!

Last year’s Exhibition went of wonderfully, and I have great hopes for this one as well!

Nova Albion Steampunk Exhibition

Ladies and gentlemen, it has come to my attention that another meeting of Steampunks is taking place in less than two weeks. On March 12, 13, and 14, Steampunks will gather in Emeryville, CA for the Nova Albion Steampunk Exhibition.

If you find yourself on the west coast (or willing to travel) with little scheduled on the aforementioned weekend and looking for an escape, I highly recommend you consider going to this Exhibition. I’m genuinely surprised that I did not hear about this event sooner, because there seems to be some very exciting events taking place, including a Steampunk ball on Friday, the concept of which always excites me. On Saturday, there is going to be a Bartitsu & Single Stick demonstration with canes which, as a martial artist who has worked with cane self-defense tactics, I sincerely wish I could see.

You can book tickets to the event on their main page. Hotel rooms are still discounted until the 25th of February, but they are on a first come, first serve basis, so do book your quarters will all available haste if you wish to attend.
