There's quite a lot happening in Gothenburg right now.

We've started up a non-profit steampunk organization called "Steampunk Götheborg",
we're also on facebook:

Every month we have several workshops, there's a steamboat "fika" (Swedish word for tea or coffee with a snack) and our first major event is on the 17'th of May when we have a big steampunk party called "Steampunk in the Mountain #1", it's listed on the website.

Other interesting events that we don't host, but support:
-the Steampunk Ball in Gothenburg (4th October 2014)
-Steampunk festival in Gävle (27-29'th of June 2014)

Best regards!

I can't read anything on their website, but I see they've got upcoming events in October on the 3rd, 24th, and 31st of October.

If anyone goes to one of their events, would you please post a review and pictures?


Update for 2016

This year we will as usual have a lot of small meetings and gatherings. If you're in the area check out "Steampunk i Göteborg" on facebook, it is our community where people will be happy to tell you what's going on in English if you ask.

The "bigger" events (in Sweden anything over 200 participants is big since the community is still young) are one in January and November. The one in January is our Steampunkday which is a combo of Steampunk at the Mountain + Gothenburg Steampunk Fayre. The date for next year will be the 14th of January 2017.

We're planning a convention the 4-6th of November this year (so far it's only in Swedish, but we're working on it)

Hope some of you are interested in coming by!

All the best
