12 to 4 pm
QUEEN’S PARK, NEW WESTMINSTER
See Map for Exact Location details. Look for the Union Jack Bunting.
Vancouverites for Steampunk group is delighted to invite you to join us for our second annual August steampunk picnic in The Royal City of New Westminster (now called Gears on the Green)! Enjoy a relaxed afternoon of al fresco dining and fun, in the company of other differently-dressed folks, before, perhaps, you finish wending your way to the Fraser Gold Rush.
Pack your parasols & picnic hampers, blankets, cushions, chairs, tables, tea services, pavilions & tea-serving automatons, and other such necessities for your comfort.
Feel free to bring croquet, bocce, or other games and entertainments, or even a wee project to work on.
DRESS CODE: Steampunk, Victorian, Edwardian, Dark Victorian, Goth, Lolita, or your best effort at any of these.
Event is FREE! It is BYOR – Bring Your Own Repast – whether this is sandwiches & iced tea, kippers & lemonade, crumpets & mineral water, or anything else you think to bring. We are only providing grass to sit upon, fresh air, and hopefully sunny weather.
LOCATION: Queen’s Park in New Westminster (the Royal City), in a lovely shady spot just down from the Petting Zoo (and ice cream, and the loo). Please see the map below for more details. If you want a large-size pdf please message me and I can email it to you.
Want to see how much fun we had last year? Take a peek at Cole Bayford’s video here!
IN THE EVENT OF INCLEMENT WEATHER, notice of event cancellation will be made by 10:15 am, and will be posted on this event listing, in the open Facebook group Vancouverites for Steampunk, AND via Twitter @Steamwench.
