Please join Bossard Library and the Gallipolis Railroad Freight Station Museum on Saturday, May 6 from 10:00 AM to 4:00 PM as we host our first ever Steampunk Festival.

This event will occur at the Gallipolis Railroad Freight Station Museum at 918 Third Avenue, Gallipolis, OH. Admission is free.

Guests are invited to attend in their fanciest Steampunk attire. Don't have Steampunk attire? No worries, come and enjoy viewing everyone else's creative endeavors.

Make sure to stop at the museum for a free tour and a chance to take selfies on and in the station's railroad cars and engines.

Grab some drinks, food, and dessert from one of the food vendors available.

Look for Steampunk and Fandom items to purchase from our vendors.

Play a free game of putt putt on a small course or a game of cornhole.

Adults and children are encouraged to stop at the library table to create a free Steampunk craft.

Spend some time viewing the antique cars, rat rods, and the model railroad on display.

We look forward to your visit.

Not sure what Steampunk is?

Author Douglas Fetherling states, "Steampunk is a genre that imagines how different the past might have been had the future come earlier."
