A Whole Season of Aethertopia Awaits You

Starting on August 24th at the Verizon Event Center in New Port Richey, and continuing through December, Aethertopia begins a three stop tour of the Tampa Bay Area, with its first event called "Aethertopia: Corsets & Cogs". Don't miss it!

Aethertopia is more than a Steampunk “Convention”

Aethertopia begins on August 24th, from 10am to 6pm at the Verizon Event Center, in New Port Richey, Florida.

 

This city, brought to you by an amazing, hard-working, dedicated community of Steampunk Makers, is more than just a fan convention. It is an immersive Steampunk event, complete with a Neo-Victorian city, in a setting that makes you feel like you’ve finally entered the Steampunk universe you’ve always dreamt of.

That’s the goal. It isn’t so much an event as it is a “pop up” theme park that we construct just for our guests who want to step back from the 21st century and immerse themselves in the activities and trappings of a living history that never happened. People who went to Aethertopia 2018 saw the first glimpse of that, and they understand what we are building. 2019 is everything we brought you in 2018, but so very much more, including massive new set pieces, huge props, lots of backdrops, and an atmosphere that will make you wish you never had to leave.

Aethertopia now returns as a three weekend event, over the course of Autumn, 2019. The first event, “Corsets & Cogs”, will be held on August 24th in the air conditioned Verizon Event Center. Filled with classes, activities, workshops, and Steampunk shenanigans. Get your tickets now.
