We encourage all guests to dress the part, but standard modern formal attire is certainly acceptable!

Should you choose to dress the part, be daring with your choices from clothing and hair, to accessories and makeup. Steampunk is a mixture of fashion trends from different historical periods. Don’t hesitate to be creative! Steampunk culture is about being unique, individual and confident!

Best Dressed

Two of our ‘Best Dressed’ guests will be leaving with a ‘steamy’ prize in recognition of their contribution to the evenings atmosphere!

Those indulging in the full ‘Fantastique’ experience will be treated to a savoury, innovative, and transformative 4-course meal prepared by Bryston’s on the Park in the underground VALE Cavern before joining the ‘Spectacle’ party.

Professor Gustave Morbeus And Lady Annabella Passmorious

We are delighted to welcome the illustrious Patametaphysicist, & Inventor Extraordinaire, Professor Gustave Erroneous Morbeus, and his partner Lady Annabella Passmorious to Science North, along with their Doom & Gloom Vacuum, Karma Cleansing Tri-Cycle and other Ambiguous Apparatuses.

Lacey Lucidity

Lacey specializes in an incredibly rare and elegant form of ‘Contact Juggling’. Guests will enjoy a magical and delightful display of precision body rolls and balance skills. Lacey and her crystal ball are a wonder to behold, adding a light and magical energy to this year’s event.

We’ve been collecting an assortment of arbitrary props to help you leave the event steampunk’ed, even if you didn’t dress the part! From parasols, top hats and fascinators, to goggles, pocket watches and mechanical gadgets, we’ve got you covered from head-to-toe!

We simply can’t host a Science North event without some real-life science…this year with a Steampunk twist! Get up close-and-personal with Science North’s most ‘peculiar creatures’, challenge your friends to a teapot race, build your own steam engine, explore the inner workings of a pocket watch, and cap off the night with a truly ‘electrifying’ experience!

Bid on a variety of ‘Fantastique’ items ranging from gift certificates, and unique products, to out-of this world dining experiences in Science North’s Planetarium, and a catered Canada Day party (complete with a jaw-dropping fireworks display) in Science North’s Ramsey room.

Watch for more exhibition information coming 2017!
