A photo from a Monthly Tea held Sept. 8 at the Downtown Library, where more than 80 people attended. These hats were made by attendees as one of the activities. At OctopodiCon, Bev Hale will be teaching a Makeshop on how to make these tiny top hats. Photo provided.

Visit airships, clubs and organizations. Take a seat and watch the crowd go by, take photos and have them taken using convenient backdrops.

The Tea Parlour is the place to stop and have a snack and a cup of coffee or tea. This area takes donations as payments, and some of the coffee and tea served are the same blends enjoyed by Queen Elizabeth II.

Don't forget to get a souvenir of your visit at the Mercantile. Browse costume pieces, gadgets, gizmos, clothing and all kinds of interesting trinkets.

Be sure to stick around for some great entertainment.

Professor Elemental, a celebrated eccentric, uses Victorian folk and hip hop to create “Chap Hop” to enchant audiences with his musical prowess.

He plans to pit his talent against Lord Montague Jacques Fromage, aka the Ultimate Victorian Funk Rapper, in a song-for-song challenge. Professor Tom Smith also enjoys a good folk and a battle of wits.

MAD-emoiselle Veronique Chevalier has escaped from her asylum and will try her Mad Sonictist skills on anyone who will listen. Nicknamed the “Weird Val” of the Steampunk world, she will parody songs in her signature style.

Triskelion plays folk melodies that are family-pleasing. Find them near Roscoe and Rose Red, magicians, musicians who are able to charm all they meet.

Everyone also will enjoy Cutie Carney Variety Circus with their plate spinning, balloon eating, comedy, dance and more.

Saturday night at 7 p.m. see the Masquerade with all kinds of talent and skits, a prelude to the 9 p.m. SteamMaker's Ball.
