Event Description

The Big River Steampunk Festival is held throughout historic downtown Hannibal, Missouri each Labor Day weekend. Different than Steampunk conventions held in large hotels, this Festival provides the opportunity to immerse yourself completely in the Victorian era with events happening all around historic Hannibal:

 

Stroll along pedestrian-only historic Main Street among buildings dating from the 1840s-1890s

 

Hear the steam-powered calliope sing a tune as the Mark Twain Riverboat signals its next cruise

 

View the magnificent Victorian mansions along Hannibal's Millionaires' Row

 

Meet Mark Twain, Queen Victoria, Teddy Roosevelt, the "Unsinkable" Molly Brown, and other 'celebrities'

 

Peruse the Steampunk costumes, accessories, gadgets and more from vendors on The Great Midway

 

See the view from high above the Mississippi River in a tethered hot air balloon

 

Enjoy the antics of dozens of entertainers during the many live performances throughout the Festival

 

Enter contests being held throughout the weekend: Costume Contests, Art Contest, Nerf Dueling, and more!
