Steampunk Symposium – April 24th – 26th, 2015

The International Steampunk Symposium (aka Steampunk Empire Symposium) started in April 2012 and has grown by leaps and bounds each year ever since. Located in Cincinnati, Ohio it is perfectly placed for central access from all over the United States, and many cross state borders and international borders for this annual gathering of ladies and gentlemen who commonly enjoy reenacting the future that never was!

Voted the Best Steampunk Convention in the Midwest, this three day festival offers all that you would expect from a fandom convention such panels, workshops, guest speakers, vendors, music, dancing, and parties, but there’s even more.

Chronicle AwardThe signature event of the Symposium is the Symposium Games, a sort of “Steampunk Olympics” in which Airships and Steampunk Groups from various cities come together to compete against each other in “gentlemanly” and somewhat “eccentric and extreme” games such as Tea Dueling, “Penny-Farthing” races, and the delightful RC Dirigible races which originated at the Symposium in 2012 and is now seen at various other Steampunk events. Indeed, the International Steampunk Symposium is an interactive weekend with some of the friendliest ladies and chaps that you shall ever meet.
