About The Watch City Festival 2023
Centred around Waltham’s picturesque Common at the intersection of Main and Moody Streets, the Watch City Steampunk Festival is a grand outdoor gathering of the Steampunk genre. It's a cultural and social movement that ingeniously fuses elements of Victorian-era history and fashion with retro-futuristic technology. Attendees of the Watch City Festival in 2023 can look forward to a rich array of theatrical and musical performers, an assortment of clothing, art, jewellery and food vendors, thus creating an immersive environment that transports you to an alternative historical timeline. Set to occur on the Saturday of Mother’s Day Weekend, May 13th, 2023, this festival is a family-friendly event that even includes children-specific programming. The beauty of it all lies in its bohemian spirit — it’s a free outdoor community festival held in the historic Waltham, MA. As a non-profit event, the Watch City Steampunk Festival is powered by generous donations. Reminder: any contribution is tax-deductible and goes a long way in ensuring this fantastical blend of Victorian elegance and mechanical innovation stays freely accessible to all those enamoured by the charm of Steampunk.
