Cowboys & Vampires!


For those anywhere Cincinnati this weekend, it’s going to be a hectic schedule of awesomeness!

Jessica JonesSaturday October 4th and Sunday October 5th see the return of the popular Steampunk Weekend at the Old West Festival. This is the third year in which The Pandora Society has teamed up with Old West Festival to transform Dodge City into the Weird West with a bust of DustPunk.

The year is 1878.  The railroad runs to the new boom town of Dodge City.  Dodge has opened up the West, and the West needs inventors!  Men and women of courage and science are desperately needed to help tame this mad wilderness and bring the benefits of modern technology to this restless new land.  Are YOU the one for the job?

Lady EquestIn addition to all the great entertainment that the Old West Festival has to offer such as Old Fashioned Melodrama, Pickled Brothers Circus, Saloon Dancers, Gunfights, and more, there will also be acoustics performances from AUTOMATON, steampunk foam dart dueling, costume contests, invention contests, and many more steampunk oddities.

Several steampunks from out of town are taking advantage of the Festival being on two days, and the Cincinnati Steampunk Salon being on Saturday night by booking a room in Cincinnati and making a WHOLE weekend of it. For these chaps and ladies, and anyone who wants to make a full weekend of it, the Old West Festival is offering a discounted weekend ticket for only $15 . . . click HERE to learn more and buy tickets.

This month the Cincinnati Steampunk Salon is playing host to the Cincinnati Halloween Masquerade, so we encourage a more Edgar Allan Poe or H.P. Lovecraft inspired attire as the whole salon takes a distinct gothic turn.

dracula-intro-nosferatuAs always the Cincinnati Steampunk Salon is a no cover (21+) event, but seeing as it a special night we will be accepting donations for our charity partner NAMI at the door as you get your event wristband.

There will be plenty of hauntingly elegant jewelry from our guest vendor Sylvan Creations, great goth music and more from our resident DJ Nymphoma, costume contests, horror movies from the silent era, baked goods for sale to raise funds for the Steampunk Symposium, and of course Molly Malone’s great menu of drinks and food. The doors open at 8PM for a more subdued gathering, but come 10PM the lights go down and the dancing begins.

  • The Cincinnati Halloween Masquerade
  • Saturday October 4th, 2014 : 8PM to 1:30AM
  • 3rd Floor of Molly Malone’s, 112 E 4th St., Covington, KY 41011
  • No Cover (but donations for NAMI accepted at door)
  • RSVP to the Facebook Event Page
