We are the sons & daughters of a revolution deeply rooted in antiquity, morals, and class. We are driven by steam & our desire to ever evolve ourselves into the adventurers & mechanically-inclined 'punks' of our era. We are in the golden age of the Victorian dynasty. We are resourceful, strong-willed, brave, and confident. We are Steampunk Nashville. We are united by our cause.

Back from our Hiatus

Dear lovely followers of Steampunk Nashville:

I am so sorry for the lack of posting during our hiatus. Personal life interrupted our flow of things. I became pregnant & had a wonderful son 6 months ago. After having him, both myself and my partner (another Admin of Steampunk Nashville) have come to the agreement that we should get the group active once again.

This being said, we are currently gearing up for Dragon*Con so nothing will be happening immediately. However come September we are hoping to host a meeting & have a local Steampunk author speak. We are also planning to host some other events throughout the rest of the year.

If you have any questions or comments please feel free to leave a message on here or find us on facebook!

  • ABNEY PARK!! (Pardon Anthony here) (it wasn’t me, you didn’t see me do it, can’t prove a thing)
