Victor’s Second Annual Steampunk Festival 

When: Feb. 21-23 2014
victorcolorado.com

Like postmodernism and other hazily defined cultural currents, steampunk's time of arrival is as subject to debate as the origins of the universe. One obvious birthplace would be The Difference Engine, William Gibson and Bruce Sterling's 1990 dystopian novel in which Babbage's steam-powered computer becomes a reality. Or take your pick: Alan Moore's League of Extraordinary Gentlemen, Terry Gilliam's Brazil, Jules Verne's Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea — there are as many possible points of entry as there will be costumed devotees at this year's Steampunk Festival II. The Victor Lowell Thomas Museum (298 Victor Ave., Victor, victorcolorado.com/events.htm) is the epicenter for the Feb. 21-23 event, which promises all manner of vendors, lectures, mine tours, and esoteric contraptions, all highlighted by tonight's costume ball and contest. — Bill Forman
