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 as panels, workshops, guest speakers, vendors, music, dancing, and parties, but there’s even more.
Between the games, bands, sports, presentations, contests, workshops, exhibitors, parties, and so much more, we often hear that there is too much to do. Whatever attractions you choose to attend, you will discover that the International Steampunk Symposium is an interactive weekend with some of the friendliest ladies and chaps that you shall ever meet.
