Voted the Best Steampunk Convention in the Midwest, this three day festival offers all that you would expect from a fandom convention such as panels, workshops, guest speakers, vendors, music, dancing, and parties, but there’s even more.
The signature event of the Symposium is the Symposium Games, a sort of “Steampunk Olympics” in which Airships and Steampunk Groups from various cities come together to compete against each other in “gentlemanly” and somewhat “eccentric and extreme” games such as Tea Dueling, “Penny-Farthing” races, and the delightful RC Dirigible races which originated at the Symposium in 2012 and is now seen at various other Steampunk events. Indeed, the International Steampunk Symposium is an interactive weekend with some of the friendliest ladies and chaps that you shall ever meet.
