How important has steampunk events become to the genre of science fiction/fantasy? Well, during the four day celebration we all know as Comic Con, Saturday has been declared STEAMPUNK DAY.
And for those who love the steampunk genre, there have been a bunch of new events all over the world promoting and celebrating everything steampunk.
Here's just a quick listing of how or where to find steampunk events this spring/summer:
1) Meetup.com. Many cities have started their own little steampunk fan clubs. See if one has sprung up near you.

3) Aetherfest. May 4-6th in San Antonio, TX. So you can go visit the Alamo, and get your steampunk on!
4) Gaslight Gathering. May 11-13th in San Diego, CA. Did you know that "San Diego" in German means...oh, forget it.
5) Steampunk World's Fair. May 18-20th in Piscataway, NJ. One of the first steampunk fairs in the world.
6) World Steam Expo. May 25-28th in Dearborn, MI. Dearborn, with all the auto plants, feels very steampunky as it is.
7) Steampunk Industrial Revolution. June 8-10th in Nashua, NH. One of their guests is some dude that pierced his body 946 times with 18 gauge needles. I know you wanna see him do that.
8) Gear Con. August 17-19th in Portland, OR. Portland is already weird. It's about to get even weirder come Aug. 17th!
