What You Know to Expect
So while we aren’t the biggest, fanciest, first, and we certainly hope we aren’t the last steampunk something-or-other on Earth – we’ve got something to steam up ingenues and aficionados alike. You won’t be disappointed.
The Brass Screw ain’t no Con. We’re our own wonderful thing. Port Townsend, Washington, is one of just three Victorian seaports in the US and for one weekend it’s transformed into our unique vision of what a Steampunk Extravaganza should be: vintage aesthetics comingled with edgy century art, music, and tech – all strapped together with brass.
We aim to rock you back on your boot heels and steam up your goggles. We’re turning it up with our Hottest Hootenanny ever, Tactical Croquet, the stupendous Bazaar of the Bizarre, Brass Screw Chautauqua, bands, magic, and mayhem galore!
