May 6, 7, 8 International Steampunk City Citizens and visitors to the beautiful and historic city of Waltham, Massachusetts may attend a festival like no other. International Steampunk City, presented by the Charles River Museum of Industry & Innovation is a sort of Ringling Brothers meets the Industrial Revolution event that encompasses the entire downtown. A small museum that could, the Charles River Museum of Industry & Innovation is working with the City of Waltham, the Waltham West Suburban Chamber of Commerce, the Downtown Waltham Business Partnership, the Waltham Tourism Council, Steampuffin and the New England Steampunk Community that blends Victorian sensibility with the whimsical Steampunk movement. With five stages, two city streets, three historic mansions, two industrial museums and over fifteen venues, International Steampunk City is gearing up to be one of most unusual festivals in New England, "Out hope is to create an experience where visitors believe they have entered a real steampunk city. A city Jules Verne would be proud of" said Stephanie Bassett, Event Director for International Steampunk City.
