Celebrate Memorial Day Steampunk Style

The weekend starts early with the 5th annual Vandalia-Con Steampunk Weekend (May 25-26) at the Blennerhassett Hotel. Bring your partners, do-si-do and get ready for a Wild West Adventure- Steampunk Style!

Repairing the rift sent Vandalia spiraling back in the tunnels of time and we landed smack dab in the middle of the Old West!  Join in the fun with shootouts, contests, amazing classes, and even learn about bionic eyes!


Vandalia-Con is a volunteer-run three-day convention hosted by the Historic Blennerhassett Hotel, which celebrates the Steampunk genre. By merging this popular genre with a great cause we honor our state’s history, educate about early detection, and engage a new generation in awareness and advocacy. All proceeds from this event are donated to the Diagnostic and Treatment Fund and Bonnie’s Bus, to ensure that breast and cervical cancer screening, diagnostic, and treatment resources are available to all WV women who need them.
