Steampunk Expo & Gothic Con 2016
April 15-17, 2016Chatanooga Choo Choo Hotel
Steampunk Expo & Gothic Con is Chattanooga's first and only Steampunk Convention located at the world famous Chattanooga Choo Choo in April. And it's about time! While Chattanooga is known for it's great Sci-Fi conventions, we felt like we would focus on the Steampunk genre. And where else but one of the oldest train terminals in the country.
So where does the Gothic come in? In the late 12th century to the 16th century, Gothic can be characterized by the architecture, art and superstitions of that time period. At many of the conventions, you will find a mixture of the two in cosplay. Hollywood has also combined them in movies such as Van Helsing. And frankly, we just felt like it would fun. Goth's need love too...
The convention will have a mixture of merchants and entertainment catering to both crowds. It will be an event for all ages during the day and for some evening events. But, when the gas lamps come on, we should have a few surprises for the adults in the crowd.
We have already cleared it with the Chattanooga Airport Authority - you can park your dirigible there and the Choo Choo offers complimentary transportation to the convention.
