The Steampunk Farmers Market
DESCRIPTION: Victorian science fiction and anachronistic fantasy come together in the “The Steampunk Farmers Market.” This happen in conjunction with the New Freedom Farmer’s Market and the New Freedom Recreation Council. Evoking thoughts of Captain Nemo and the Nautilus, the League of Extraordinary Gentlemen, and dusted with a not-so-subtle fascination with Nikola Tesla, Steampunk is a genre with appeal to all ages. Drawing attention to days gone by and inspiring the imagination to research what once was and then to create worlds with future histories that never happened, time travel, airship pirates, whimsical costumes and fantastical gadgetry, Steampunk is unlimited in creative potential. The event aims to bring the flair of Steampunk to New Freedom, by featuring Steampunk-themed artists, authors, craft vendors, and musicians and give local time-adventurers of all ages a place to come out and have fun. The event itself will be free to enter to the public.
The Steampunk Farmer’s Market is happening in the tree shaded park just beyond the Rose Fire Company and the community center. The main parking for the event will be the lot between these two buildings, in front of the park. The event is outdoors, so please bring your own tent or canopy if you think you need one!
Hope to see you there!

Vendors! Do you have a business that falls into the realm of Steampunk? Do you create mechanical oddities, steam fueled curiosities, whimsical jewelry, quirky apparel, or anything else that can fall under the broad Steampunk umbrella? Are you a Steampunk or Victorian themed entertainer who has an idea for a panel, talk, act, or demonstration? Do you feel that what you have to offer would fit in at a Steampunk event? We are willing to consider pitches for most anything so as long as it can be arguably categorized as Steampunk or as holding appeal to a Steampunk crowd. If you are not a typical Steampunk vendor, feel free to let us know why you think a Steampunk crowd may appreciate your presence. We reserve the right to reject and refund vendors that we do not feel fit the event.
We are also interested in all types of food vendors for this event!
