Thank you!


The Steampunkfestival is over and we had more than 550 members!

A huge thank you to everyone who came and made the festival amazing, thank you to our interesting, clever and entertaining guests of honour and guests and everyone who participated in the programme, to our gophers and last but not least to the fantastic Sveriges Järnvägsmuseum (Swedish Railway Museum).

Next year’s Swecon will be ConFuse in Linköping, 7-9 August 2015. It’s not a steampunk con, but it will surely be fantastic in other ways.

We will put together a list of links to photo galleries and blog posts about the festival, so feel free to post a link in the comments if you have written about the festival or posted photos from it.

Dead Dog Party

Don’t want the fun to be over? There will be a Dead Dog Party after the convention, open to anyone who wants to come. It will be at “CC-Puben” at Centralplan 3, close to the Gävle station.

Bring cash

We have had problems with our card readers, and therefore we recommend everyone to bring cash. Working on fixing the problem.
