This is also a chance to showcase your best Steampunk decor by decorating your Docking Bay!  A special "Medal of Honor" will be issued to The Most Outstanding Airship crew members for those deemed to have the most imaginative, most creative, most amazing Steampunk Docking Bay -- bring your flags and banners, your gear-laden tent decorations, your most unique lounging chairs, and show how Steampunkers really live and play!



The 2019 Big River Steampunk Festival is proud to present:


The Airship Village


We encourage all Airships to participate and fellowship with other like-minded Steampunk enthusiasts from around the universe!


Reserve your FREE space and set up a Docking Bay (tent or other pavilion) so that your Airship crew has a place to relax, meet up, regroup, party, and enjoy the festivities!





Oh! And one other thing...


Come Join the Parade!


On Saturday, August 30 the Main Street Parade begins at 10:00pm, commencing from The Levee at the foot of Center Street -- Airships, make a float! Decorate a vehicle! Bring your flags and banners! Or, simply march in the parade and strut your stuff -- but join in the fun as we dance and parade around the streets of historic downtown Hannibal!
