About this project

In 2012, Southeast Michigan lost its Steampunk Engine!

Despite this loss, Steampunk continues to move forward.

Through love, heart, mind and the dreams of geniuses like Tesla and the founders of Kickstarters, the People rose, and created...

Up in the Aether: the Con!

Up in the Aether: The convention is a three day convention dedicated to everything steampunk. Running the Friday, Saturday, and Sunday of Memorial Day weekend, including a COMPLETE day of programing all three days, it will take place in Detroit, MI. Already the schedule includes events such as the “Steampunk Rave”, a low tea, a High Tea, and much much more. In addition, we're currently talking to some great bands, authors, and makers and the more support we get the better a convention we can put on. We're offering a number of premium tiers for every budget, the $55.00 tier is essentially pre- registration of the convention. Please help us make this an awesome event!
