 There’s a lot of research and discussion below, so if you want the short version, here it is:

The world’s largest Steampunk event, the world’s largest dark/alternative social media site, and an incredible, family-owned, hand-built resort in the Catskills are teaming up to create a Steampunk Haunted House which will be available both to those who travel there, and internationally (through special backer-only shows and live walkthroughs!)  That Steampunk Haunted House is actually already 99% completed.  We want your help to push it over the top!

Get ready! First 50 backers will be entered into a contest for having a drink with Jeff Mach and members of the Blackthorne and Haunt team!


Jeff Mach, the fellow behind The Steampunk World’s Fair, is bringing Steampunk back to our friends at the lovely, family-owned Blackthorne resort!

Steampunk in the Catskills is a splendid, laid-back vacation. With five gourmet, hand-cooked meals, AND entertainment, AND lodging all included, the show’s earned itself a reputation as not only one of the friendliest places to be in the Steampunk universe, but also one of the most affordable.

Steampunk In The Catskills returns! Come join us for the event that’s been called “Steampunk Summer Camp” and “the best knife-and-for tea this side of the ocean”. Performers! Vendors! A Steampunk haunted house!

Stay overnight at the Blackthorne Resort. Call (518) 634-2541 to get your room and reserve your spot at the event (ask for the Steampunk Weekend 2017)!

You do NOT need to purchase tickets if you are staying overnight. Rooms are first-come, first-served (there are only a hundred rooms total)!

Vendors – limited space available – all vending is outdoors – APPLY NOW!  Email [email protected] to make sure we have spaces left.

We look forward to seeing you! It’s going to be splendidtacular!
