The Brass Screw ain't no Con. We're our own wonderful thing. Port Townsend, Washington, is one of just three Victorian seaports in the US and for one weekend it's transformed into our unique vision of what a Steampunk Extravaganza should be: vintage aesthetics comingled with edgy century art, music, and tech - all strapped together with brass.

What to Expect

We aim to rock you back on your boot heels and steam up your goggles. We're turning it up with our Hottest Hootenanny ever, Tactical Croquet, Airship Apprentice (our own collectible card game), Nebula award-winning Phil & Kaja Foglio's Girl Genius, Rise of Aester's annual assembly, the stupendous Bazaar of the Bizarre, Brass Screw Chautauqua, bands, magic, and mayhem galore!

So while we aren't the biggest, fanciest, first, and we certainly hope we aren't the last steampunk something-or-other on Earth - we've got something to steam up ingenues and aficionados alike. You won't be disappointed.

We're building the best Brass Screw ever!

This years festival comingles distillates of the very finest of year's past including Friday's Den of Iniquities, Saturday's Hootenanny, burlesque and peepshows for the naughty, and sweet sweet absinthe for the nice.
