If you are a fantasy or science fiction fan you will want to drop everything else you planned to do tomorrow and head over to Fairhaven to check out this exciting and FREE event. The Fairhaven Steampunk Festival aka The Fantastical Mr. Flip’s Carnival of Wonders and Curiosities will give you a day to remember!
This is the third year of the festival and you will be entertained, amazed, and hopelessly in love with the creative and unique community, the Bellingham Steampunk Society and others, who come together each year to pull this off. The event will be split between the Village Green in Fairhaven, the Village Inn, and the Village Books; running from 11am to 5pm.

You will be entertained with music and acrobatics from buskers and performers–perhaps even the Ladies of the Evening o.O! There will be fencing demos. Everything Steampunk will be on display–costumes, gadgets, bric-a-brac, even bicycles. There will be food and plenty of merchants selling their wares, so be sure to bring your appetite, your mad money, and your laughter.
