Big River Steampunk Festival 2019
August 30 - September 2, 2019
The Big River Steampunk Festival is held each Labor Day weekend and features fantastic events, fun contests and amazing performances that take place throughout historic downtown Hannibal. Different than Steampunk conventions held in large hotels, this Festival provides the opportunity to immerse yourself completely in the Victorian era as you stroll along the pedestrian-only historic Main Street amongst the authentic 1840s buildings just as Mark Twain did as a young boy. Put on your cosplay "Steam Persona" and relive the days of steamboats, steam trains, and the romance of the Victorian era along the western shore of the mighty Mississippi River!
