Travelin' Fast and Light, but I'm a Goin' to the Fair!

So why am I reposting articles about this particular event again?  Because I'm going and you should too, assuming you can of course.  I just couldn't stand waiting another 7 months to see a live performance of Psyche Corporation (scheduled to appear in Fort Worth, Texas at the  Difference Engine New Year's Ball), so I finally dug up the change, quite a bit actually, to buy a plane ticket and will sleep in the mud and feed on wild roots if I have to, but I'm going none the less.  Actually, as co-producer I will be rather focused on assisting and promoting Psyche Corporation and doing Band manager type things, but I may yet find myself sleeping in the mud and feeding on wild berries and roots just the same! (without even the aid of a properly pulled pint of Guinness to make it a more pleasant experience...more's the pity!)  Get on yer horse, yer mule, yer donkey, yer Airship, yer steam powered Gypsy wagon, or whatever sort of strange contraption you use these days for transportation and meet us all at:

The Steampunk World’s Fair:  The world’s largest, friendliest Steampunk Event!

The World's Largest Steampunk Event
  …the most festive Steampunk festival, the largest steampunk convention or steampunk weekend or, in general, the largest “steampunk event” anywhere…that would be us!   Thank you so much for coming by!
Wait a minute… this abode of madpersons, this strange and unorthodox castle of capers and cracked cobbers…this is Steampunk’s largest gathering?
Yes!  We, the event run by the slightly mad, for the slightly mad, are proudly the largest Steampunk event anywhere, as well as one of the friendliest and the most inviting to all.
Is that a coincidence?  We think not!  There are friendly Steampunk events, and there are events where you have to look “just right” or you won’t fit in.  We will ALWAYS be friendly, and we don’t care how you look, what you wear, or what you do, as long as you have fun with it!  ”We’re all mad here”.  Some of us just wear more gears…seriously, we believe that creating an eclectic, outside-of-everyday world is at the heart of Steampunk.  And doubly seriously…we don’t take ourselves too seriously!
But we do have some things which we feel are seriously wonderful.  For example…
We feature the United States debut of Steampunk performers from France andJapan!  spectacular  Absinthe Tasting, if you enjoy, or are curious about, that famed Neo-Victorian distillation!   We have a huge and growing list of performers & pleasures (largest in the steampunk event world!).   We even have a special buffet dinner & high tea, right here!
Do Steampunk shows make you grow giant mustaches?  ..possibly!

We welcome one and all, Steampunk experts or total Steampunk novices, the expert and the curious – it matters not, come in and have a wonderful time!  Feel free to look around our website, feel free to get in touch with us, and, if you’d like, find us over on Facebook, too, and meet other people who are interested in the World’s Fair.
Come in!  Come in!  Come in!
