The people behind Vermont Comic Con, the Green Mountain Comic Expo and the Vermont Renaissance Faire are teaming up to bring a new geeky show to Vermont: the Vermont Steampunk Expo.
The event will be held on November 4th and 5th in South Burlington’s Sheraton. According to its Facebook page, the event will “showcase artisans, crafters and performers from across Vermont and New England.”
There’s no details about pricing or vendors just yet; the site promises that that information will come soon.
This isn’t the first Steampunk-styled event to hit Vermont. The Springfield Steampunk Festival has been held for the past two years in Springfield, with a third iteration scheduled to be held on September 15th and 16th.
However, the Springfield event ran into financial troubles last year due to low attendance: it had to make up for lost revenue with a GoFundMe campaign that allowed them to cover their bills. Part of that might be due to location (Springfield is a bit out there), but it does beg the question: is there space for two similar events?
