(GALVESTON, TX) – Don’t miss the second annual Galveston Steampunk Festival on Saturday, April 6, 2024, at the Galveston Railroad Museum, 2602 Santa Fe Place, from 11AM to 11PM. This year we have three days of activities.  

A family friendly event the Steampunk Festival celebrates 19th century technology,  steam power and the railroad. A perfect location for the event, Steampunk  enthusiasts will enjoy access to all interactive exhibits, train depot, a marketplace  with over 50 vendors, food and drink court, teapot racing, tea on the train  experience, authors, entertainment, live demonstrations, games, costume contest,  historic tours, and much more! Costumes are encouraged!  

A subgenre of science fiction, Steampunk incorporates retro-futuristic technology and aesthetics inspired by 19th-century industrial steam-powered machinery. The Galveston Railroad Museum offers a unique location for visitors to be immersed in the extensive history of the railroad and mechanical innovation that embodies the Steampunk spirit. It is most fitting that Historic Galveston Island, built by Victorian industrialists who used new machines and new fabrication methods to drive economic development, was chosen as the location for the annual Steampunk  Festival. 

A colorful, fun and entertaining event, new activities for 2024 include a Steamboat  Tour Experience, professional photography sessions and Sunday Tea Dueling.
