Dress up in your steampunk finest (find your costume tips here) for the new Galveston Steampunk Festival happening at the Galveston Railroad Museum and Downtown Galveston on Saturday, April 1 and Sunday April 2, 2023.

The family-friendly Galveston Steampunk Festival is a two-day event celebrating the sci-fi subgenre that crosses Victorian-era style and industrialism with retrofuturism.

In addition to the main festival on Saturday, there will be special additional opportunities for tea on the train, driving tours in classic Model Ts, and walking ghost tours over the weekend.
