The First Annual Clockwork Festival

The National Watch & Clock Museum presents our First Annual Clockwork Festival!

  • Food Trucks
  • Live Music
  • Tea Dueling
  • Steampunk Costume Contest
  • Maker's Panel
  • RC Racecars
  • Horological Presentations

The full day of vendors, crafts, costumes, panels, and music will celebrate the intersection of horology, steampunk, and beyond.

Horologists have been pushing the boundaries of what can be accomplished with geared mechanisms since clocks were first invented. Steampunk creations are only the latest in a long line of complicated watches, automata, and other clockwork novelties.
