TeslaCon is the only immersion-themed Steampunk convention in North America. The city of Madison, Wisconsin plays host every year to this event that has a long line of sister conventions preceding it. We may call TeslaCon a convention but, in fact, it is far more than that. To many people TeslaCon has become an experience - a true adventure into the world of neo-Victorian science fiction. With themes from the Wild Weird West and Diesel Punk to Dystopian futures where steam and contraptions inhabit the skies, TeslaCon fills a void where few conventions dare go. Immersion is the central idea behind the convention where we start with an old-fashioned traditional movie that includes credits to the crew who create the comfortable setting for all guests over the entire weekend. Panels and entertainment are handpicked to provide you with the feeling that you are actually in the 1880's as a participant and not an observer. To add to the feeling of complete immersion we also run a full weekend mystery, complete with murders, espionage and, of course, the old bait and switch when it comes to who the villain truly is. From a formal Tea Room, complete with scones and period baked goods, to our Tinkersmith room, all aspects of the con are crafted and designed for maximum enjoyment.
