SATURDAY JULY 20, 2013
12 to 4 pm
QUEEN ELIZABETH PARK, VANCOUVER
Enter at West 33rd from Cambie (see below and map for our exact location!)
Vancouverites for Steampunk group is delighted to invite you to join us for our Second Annual Brass in the Grass Steampunk Picnic, for a relaxed afternoon of al fresco dining and fun, in the company of other differently-dressed folks.
So, pack your parasols and straw boaters, your picnic hampers, blankets, cushions, chairs, stools, shade canopies and tea-serving automatons, and other such necessities for your comfort.
Feel free to bring croquet, or other games and entertainments, or even a wee project to work on in the fresh air.
DRESS CODE: Steampunk, Gothic, Lolita, Victorian, Dark Victorian, or Edwardian dress, or your best effort at any of these. And we won’t kick you out if you don’t dress up – but it does so make for a much more fun atmosphere.
Event is FREE! It is BYOR – Bring Your Own Repast – whether this be sandwiches and iced tea, kippers & lemonade, or anything else you think to bring. We are only providing grass to sit upon, fresh air, and hopefully sunny weather.
LOCATION: Queen Elizabeth Park, in the southwest corner. Take the entrance off West 33rd from Cambie, for easiest navigation. We will be west-southwest of the Rose Garden and northwest of the basketball & tennis area, just off Kersland Drive. We will post a map shortly.
IN THE EVENT OF INCLEMENT WEATHER, notice of event cancellation will be made by 10:30 am, and will be posted on this website, as well as in the open Facebook group Vancouverites for Steampunk, AND via Twitter @Steamwench.
