Good Afternoon my fellow Steampunks!
If anybody will be in Calgary Sept 11 to 16 make sure you bring along some of your Steampunk gear!
Calgary's first Beakerhead event starts 7:00am Wednesday, September 11 and goes right through to late on Sunday night September 15.
You can get more information here:( https://www.facebook.com/Beakerhead
and here: http://beakerhead.org/
We are encouraging all Steampunks to wear their Steampunk gear proudly when attending any Beakerhead events as this will be a great opportunity to show Calgary, Canada, and the World the beauty and creativity that Steampunk has to offer.
The Steampunk Arts and Sciences Society (SASS) has been working with Beakerhead to make sure there are some Steampunk activities included.
There are currently three main Steampunk events during Beakerhead as well as many opportunities for Steampunks to participate.
The current calendar of Beakerhead events is up at their website if you want to see the range of events:
Here are the currently scheduled Steampunk events that the Steampunk Arts and Sciences Society have listed with Beakerhead.
Thursday September 12
Steampunk walkabout on Steven Ave Mall followed by adding some Steampunk class to the evening with the first Calgary Philharmonic Orchestra performance of the 2013 season.
We are working to get free tickets to this performance for Steampunks who attend so stay tuned to the SASS FB page for details.
Saturday September 14
Maker Faire at ACAD
SASS has booked a table for Steampunks at Maker Faire this year.
Last year was great fun and this year will be even bigger and it runs over both Saturday and Sunday!
If you are interested in helping to man the table to display some of your gadgets and costumes let us know.
Photo Shoot at the Rocket
Join your fellow Steampunks for a mass Steampunk photo shoot at the 40' metal rocket in Victoria Park.
This will be a fantastic opportunity for Steampunks to gather and show off our creations and costumes with the back ground of a silver Buck Rogers looking rocket.
We will be posting the time for this once we have it.
Starting at 8:00 pm and going to whenever!
This is the place to really shine. Many of the events are free and this will turn downtown Calgary into a wonderland of experiment, science and art. Taking place in three different venues, Victoria Park, East Village, and Olympic Plaza.
Steampunks are encouraged to attend all three of the venues during the afternoon and evening. We will be gathering for a "Steampunk Rendezvous" in Olympic Plaza the time for which is still being determined so stay tuned.
For more information check out the SASS FB page https://www.facebook.com/SteampunkArtsAndScienceSociety
Beakerhead will be one fantastic adventure and I hope as many Steampunks as possible will come out to join the fun and show off our creations!
Keep your sightglass full and your firebox trimmed.
