Steampunk Artists Sought!
- April 30, 2021
It’s back for 2021! The Southern Maine Steampunk Fair, now in its 7th year, returns as the Museum’s most popular and unique events.
The Fair will take place outdoors to ensure the safety of vendors and visitors to the Museum’s campus, and follow all local and state protocols to prevent the spread of COVID-19. As of this writing, masks MUST be worn at all times.
Vendors, performers, and lecturers all return to the Museum to celebrate the art of Steampunk, a niche aesthetic that blends Victorian steampower with the future. Steampunk often features anachronistic technologies or “retro-futuristic” inventions as people in the 19th century might have envisioned them. The era’s perspective on fashion, culture, architectural style, invention and art all play into the visual culture of Steampunk. Technology may include fictional machines like those found in the works of H. G. Wells and Jules Verne.
This year, the event takes place Saturday, August 14 from 11am to 4pm, in downtown Kennebunk, Maine.
Do you make art or craft that relates to steampunk, Victoriana, gothic or retro aesthetic? Do you speak on history, fantasy, science, or historical fiction? Perhaps you are an entertainer? Or you serve a delicious treat? We want you! Registration for our next Southern Maine Steampunk Fair is now open. Learn more about the event, including how to become a vendor or performer, on the Museum’s Steampunk Fair page.
