The Enchanted City 2017

Enchanted City steampunk vehicle

The Enchanted City festival returns to Troy September 16. This year the steampunk-themed event will be in Riverfront Park from 11 am to 5 pm. Blurbage:

The free festival of steampunk fashion, fantasy and fabrications draws more than 5,000 participants and offers a family-friendly inspired day of music, games, performance, food and fantasy. Special events include an opening parade of Mad Machinery, a costume contest, street performers and peddlers, storytelling, dancing, puppet shows, magic acts and more.
Adults and children are encouraged to come dressed in steampunk-themed costumes or as fairies to take part in the spectacle that will magically transform a waterfront park in historic downtown Troy, N.Y. into a "cosplay" alternative reality where Victorian fancy meets modern technology.

There are a few other events related that weekend related to the festival:

+ The evening of Friday, September 15 there's a gala at the Tech Valley Center of Gravity, with "ladies in finery, men in top hats, marionettes, music, signature cocktails with open bar, Parisian pastries, butlered hors d'oeuvres, and specialty fare stations catered by Chef Josh Colletto & Friends." Tickets are $100.

+ And that Saturday night there will be a pirate-themed afterparty on the Dutch Apple with music and dinner. Tickets are $45 before August 15, $75 after.

Tickets for both events are available online.
