THE STEAMPUNK REVOLUTION
What is steampunk? It’s a counter-culture & literary genre based on Victorian Era science-Fiction. It’s what the world would be like if the steam-era never ended.
What are counter-cultures? Some familiar examples are hipster, hippy and goth. Its not just a style of dress, but a theme of lifestyle choices. Steampunkers take old and obsolete ideas, and twist them into something new and fresh. Were bringing old fashion, back into fashion!

UPCOMING STEAMPUNK EVENTS
The Toronto Steampunk Society. Join us at:
The Environmental Crisis:
Our civilization is draining the planets limited resources of fossil fuels, and needs Steampunk’s help. Our modern way of life is the cause of the problem. We’re over using electricity and fossil fuels, and soon our limited resources will run out. Without gas, cars will have to run on electricity. And with no gas to run the generators, the price of electricity will skyrocket! Our only source will be solar and hydro electric power. For us common folk, this means modern cars may become a thing of the past.
A Future Without Fossil Fuels.
What will be the main source of transportation? Steam Powered & Horse Drawn Vehicles! Our society will take a step backwards into the archaic Victorian Era. The Victorian Era was in the 1800’s, when Steam-Power was the main source of industry and transportation. Top Hats, Monocles, Steam-Engines, and Horse-Drawn Vehicles were the biggest fashion. With the arrival of the first Electric Streetcar in Toronto, the Era had officially ended. SteamPower was no match for the immense power of ELECTRICITY!
SteamPunk promotes open-mindedness, appreciation for the past, and advancements in our technology. It’s what our world may look like if history had gone differently.
This is known as parallel dimensions. With SteamPunk you can explore the infinite possibilities.
