We are always looking for people to help spread the word by posting flyers and distributing posters in their hometowns across New England. We need help to keep people in the know about all things WCFS related, especially as the Festival date draws closer! If you're willing to help get the news out to people, let us know by contacting us at!


Have you got the willingness and dedication to contribute on bigger and more regular scale? We are always looking to expand our steering committee, which meets throughout the year to put in place the machinations and grand schemes which make up all everything the attendees enjoy and experience on Festival Day. The Watch City Steampunk Festival is a labor of love for a small group of very hard-working and dedicated individuals with a wealth of varying talents and backgrounds and as we get bigger, we always need more great ideas and assistance.
