What is Steampunk you ask?? It is a blend of the Victorian Era and technology with a bit of Science Fiction and Fantasy….think of airships, goggles, jet packs, corsets, top hats, parasols, combined with imagination and a wee bit of whimsy.
Steampunk is a loosely-based term for a sub-genre of Science Fiction, fantasy and role-play that provides an alternate history of steam-powered societies during the Industrial Revolution. The most popular eras include British Victorian and Edwardian, with the American Wild West and a completely imaginary post-apocalyptic future coming in a close second.
Celebrating all that is whimsical, The Oxnard Steampunk Fest Crew would like to invite you to join the festivities, just before Halloween! Oh, what FUN we will have!
