Salutations to our varied and creative tinkerers, rough riders, scientists, airship pirates, strowlers, and steampunk enthusiasts!

We, the behind the scenes minions of the Steampunk Exhibition Ball, are madly plugging away at our logistical terminals to present you with a even more fantastical event than our maiden voyage last year. You will not believe your eyes! This year’s fantastical feast will titillate and inspire while we bring you fantastical inventions of mad scientists, the melodic sounds of steampunk musical sensations, visual displays of the slipped timing chains of the most talented dancers, competitions of the marvelous manscaping and exquisite hat varieties. You will also be able to experience a bit of wormwood at our ever fabulous Absinthe Bar, sip varieties of uniquely blended teas in our Tea Room, and have your souls captured at our Photo Salon. All this and so much more can be experienced in full immersion as your are surrounded by the true and extraordinary history and artifacts of Victorian Seattle. Now where else can you get THIS experience?! The answer is simple, no where but at Seattle's Steampunk Exhibition Ball! So zip your dirigible over to our BRAND NEW main website for more information, ticketing, and exploration!

Don't forget to also join our Official Steampunk Exhibition Ball LiveJournal Community, where you can get up to date news flashes about the event and network with folks who are attending or performing!
