Lincoln Steampunk Festival 2023
Bailgate & Steep Hill
25 August - 28 August
Over August bank holiday weekend, the cobbled streets of historic Lincoln are transformed with top hats, flying goggles, corsets and flamboyant feathers!
The biggest Steampunk festival in the world will be returning to Lincoln for the bank holiday weekend. Attracting visitors from all over the world, this innovative event celebrates a steam powered world in the late 19th century.
Now in its 13th year, the Lincoln Steampunk Festival will feature a fringe-style programme of art, literature, music, fashion and comedy.
Highlights will include:
- Steampunk Market
- Asylum Costume Competition and Parade
- The Asylum’s Most Splendid Promenade
- Steampunk Campus
- The Illicit Market
- Jet Pack Race
- Tea Duelling
- The Great Exhibition
- The Wacky Racers and Pararacers
We recommend visitors use city centre car parks, as car parking is very limited uphill.
