A Grand Exposition of Canadian Steampunk grandeur, a festival of epic proportions, sights and sounds to entertain and delight... all this and more

We welcome you to the Second Annual GCSE, once again filled with sights, sounds, and experiences that have to be seen to be believed. We’ll time travel to the world of a real, honest to goodness 19th century Fort, where delights and pleasures abound – along with a multitude of surprises and experiences that you simply haven’t encountered anywhere before. What happens when you let a very large gaggle of Steampunks loose in a very large Fort full or soldiers, muskets, cannons, and so forth? The mind boggles.

Magnificent performers, inspiring panels and workshops, incomparable photo ops, fantastic vendors – all of this and so very much more awaits you at Fort George National Historic Site in Niagara-on-the-Lake, Ontario, Canada.

We’d just love it if you’d join us.
