QUEENS PARK, NEW WESTMINSTER, BC
Vancouverites for Steampunk is delighted to invite you to join us for our third annual August steampunk picnic in The Royal City of New Westminster, hosted by the elegant Melissa Mary Duncan and her sterling husband, Donald Duncan! 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 & straw boaters, and your picnic hampers, blankets, cushions, chairs, stools, shade canopies & 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, neo-Edwardian or your best effort at such.
Event is FREE! It is BYOR – Bring Your Own Repast – whether this be sandwiches and iced tea, kippers & lemonade, or crocodile steaks and mermaids’ tears. We provide the grass to sit upon, fresh air, and hopefully sunny weather.
LOCATION: Queen’s Park in New Westminster (the Royal City). Map with precise details is below.
IN THE EVENT OF INCLEMENT WEATHER, notice of event cancellation will be made by 10:30 am, and will be posted on this event listing, in the open group Vancouverites for Steampunk, on our website (www.vancouversteampunk.net
