Bodger’s Grande Exhibition

Welcome again to the Bodger’s Grand Exhibition, a Steampunk Makers Fair.  Are you an artisan or amazing artifact maker?  Come display your amazing skills and maybe compete for a cash prize!

Bodger’s Hall Hours: Friday, June 9: 5-8pm, Saturday, June 11: 10-6pm
Location: Pope Marine Building (Madison and Water St, right on the water front)
Details for Participants

This year’s theme is Piratical so we’re looking for arrrrrticles and arrrrrtifacts with a swashbuckling twist (or not, just be like that, we’ll still accept it).  Our latest Pirates adventure is intended to inspire your mad genius to create wonderful items for our Steampunk judges to evaluate.  Imagine a science fair unburdened by vulgar constraints like reality…  or physics.  Judging may may consider include artistry (make it pretty), function (make it work), documentation (make it a good story), steampunk vision (make it bizarre)…  With $100s of dollars in prizes, we’re putting our loot on the plank.

We are proud to feature celebrity judges and master bodgers Tobias McCurry ( and the return of Lord Towers ( aided and abetted by local maker and robotics champion Kit Ward-Crixell
