THE PREMIER ANNUAL STEAMPUNK EVENT IN THE PACIFIC NORTHWEST IS BACK ONCE MORE!

GEAR Con Year 8: The Great War will be held Saturday-Sunday July 7 & 8, 2018 in beautiful downtown Portland, Oregon!

Join us for this year's theme, "The Great War", commemorating the centennial of the conclusion of WWI, looking forward to dieselpunk-style retrofuturism, and exploring steampunk militaria.

Of course we will continue in our other traditions as well to round out our 70+ hours of programming: the Steampunk Scrap Heap Challenge, the Salon of the Arts, a beautiful marketplace of vendors, bartitsu, theater games, puzzles, panel programming, costuming and so much more!

For your indulgence, performing at Saturday night's Cabaret of Curiosities will be:

Good Company, Seattle-based electroswing
CeCe Otto of American Songline, songs of the era
Bright & Shiny, Jazzy Dark Cabaret
.. and More TBA!

And don't forget about Sunday evening: Vanity's Vaudeville Vixens is our annual themed burlesque revue produced by Portland's own Vanity Thorn!

To access our hotel room discount of $104/night+tax, call the University Place Hotel at 503-221-0140 and ask for the GEAR Con room rate. A very hearty breakfast buffet is included in your stay. Parking is an extra fee of $12-15, however it is across the street from an Orange Line stop and near the streetcar and other transit.
