Steam on Queen
The first Steam on Queen in 2012 saw nearly 4500 people through the gates in a single day (that we actually counted... lord knows how many came in that we missed!). And despite the rain, the 2013 event drew even more. In terms of attendance, that makes it the single most successful Steampunk event in the world, ever.
And what's not to like? Continuous live entertainment and demonstrations, amazing merchants and artisans, and free admission makes this unique festival the darling of Queen Street for a day.
The next Steam on Queen will be held June 21st, 2014.
The Steam on Queen Bazaar
Not content to hold Steam on Queen just once a year, Canadian Steam Productions has begun producing seasonal 'Bazaars' at the historic Gladstone Hotel. These smaller scale, indoor events respond to the demand for Steampunk entertainment and wares in a more intimate setting.
The Steam on Queen Spring Bazaar will be held March 16th, 2014.
