Special Exhibit – Victorian Fae

Each year the Chicago Steampunk Exposition hosts a Special Exhibit that sets the underlying “theme” for that year’s convention; for 2023 our special exhibit will be “Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s Fantastic Discovery of the Fae World.” This exhibit will feature art, relics, and other items of interest collected around the Fae Academia following Doyle and his father establishing diplomatic contact with the Fae territories. The Exposition will celebrate the many cultures, achievements, and art of Faekind, and be joined by ambassadors and representatives of these magical realms as we welcome them to Chicago. In many ways this will be like Carnival Row, but unlike the Republic of the Burgue, Chicago embraces diversity and multicultural exchanges.

What to Expect at the Exposition?

The Chicago Steampunk Exposition offers a family friendly Program filled with entertainment, exhibits, vendors, presenters, games, and much more.

For 2023 our Guests of Honor include Gail Carriger, S.J. Tucker, Leanna Renee Hieber, Frenchy & the Punk, and more.
