The First Annual Big River Steampunk Festival was held in Hanibal, Missouri over the Labor Day weekend, August 30-31, 2014. Despite temperatures in the upper 90s both days, it was an amazing gathering of Steampunkers from all around the Midwest!


Enjoy the sights and sounds of the 2014 Festival as we make plans for the 2nd Annual, being held Sept. 5-7, 2015!
