High Desert Steam is a Reno based, Northern Nevada Steampunk group. Whether you’re a life-styler or a hobbiest, a cos-player or just curious, you’re welcome! We’re interested in a past that never was and a future that may have been – the sci fi and phantasmagorical in the age of steam.

High Desert Steam was organized to further the understanding of Steampunk and as a venue for Northern Nevada (and it’s environs) to discuss all aspects of Steampunk including promotion of Steampunk events by any and all who hold them. High Desert Steam does not discriminate – merely requests that all who post and attend have one goal in mind – furtherance and joy in this genre called STEAMPUNK!!!

Join us for a full weekend of fun, frivolity, entertainment, education, and dancing!
