Galveston Steampunk Festival Parade

Loaded with activities for all ages, the Galveston Steampunk Festival celebrates 19th century technology centered on the railroad. A perfect location for the event, Steampunk enthusiasts will enjoy access to all interactive exhibits, train depot, a marketplace with more than 50 vendors, food and drink court, tea on the train, teapot racing, costume contest, live entertainment, vow renewals, Time Machine, and much, much more. Costumes are encouraged so plan to dress for the occasion.

Galveston Steampunk Festival Time Machine

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 inaugural Steampunk Festival.

A colorful, fun and entertaining event, the Galveston Steampunk Festival is a collaboration between the Galveston Railroad Museum and WebTek Promotions. Activities include costume contest, teapot racing, tea on the train experience, depot market vendors, live entertainment, full access to museum exhibits. One ticket and play all day.
