TUCSON - Old Tucson presents the Wild, Wild West Con II Steampunk Convention and Festival, on Friday, March 8 thru Sunday, March 10, 2013.
This Convention is America's first and only Steampunk convention/festival to take place in a western-themed town.
Jason Drotman, President of the Con said, "After an incredibly successful event in 2011, we're very excited to make this year's convention larger than ever before!"
Wild, Wild West Con II celebrates three fun-filled days of Steampunk fashion, merchants and music. Hundreds of fans will arrive at Old Tucson to celebrate all things Steampunk. Steampunk culture blends Victorian Age dress with a retro-futuristic vibe.
The Con features more than 40 panels, workshops and concerts during the three days of the convention. Topics will range from "101" classes for those new to Steampunk to "make and take" workshops to advanced hands-on classes for those who want to expand their skills.
Panels include interactive entertainment, exclusive video presentations, Meet & Greet panels with many of the artists and musicians. Even kids will enjoy arts, crafts, and games as well as all the environment of Old Tucson.
