Enter at West 33rd from Cambie (see below and map for our exact location!)
“Vancouverites for Steampunk” is delighted to host our third annual Brass in the Grass picnic! We invite you to join us on Saturday, July 26, for a relaxed afternoon of al fresco dining and fun, in the company of other differently-dressed folks.
Pack your parasols & straw boaters, and your picnic hampers, blankets, cushions, chairs, stools, shade canopies & tea-serving automatons, and other such necessities for your comfort.
Please bring croquet, or other games and entertainments, or even a wee project to work on.
DRESS CODE: Steampunk, Dieselpunk, Victorian or Edwardian, Dark Victorian, Gothic, Lolita, or your best effort at such. Flapper or Regency will fly here too – we’re more inclusive than exclusive!
Event is FREE! It is BYOR – Bring Your Own Repast – whether this comprises sandwiches and iced tea, kippers & lemonade, or anything else you think to bring. We provide 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.
IN THE EVENT OF INCLEMENT WEATHER, notice of event cancellation will be made by 10:30 am, and will be posted on this website, in the open Facebook group Vancouverites for Steampunk, on the official Facebook event listing, AND via Twitter @ClockworkDoor.
A polite note – this is a social event for the enjoyment and fun of the attendees, and is not a photoshoot. Professional photographers looking to take photos of us are not welcome unless they are already members of our community and have contacted us in advance of the event.
