Flooding forces new Hannibal Steampunk event to move

Flooding has moved the first-ever Big River Steampunk Spring Faire out of the Admiral Coontz Armory in Hannibal to a new location.

Organizers of the event said with the parking lot still covered in water, they decided to move to the Mark Twain Brewery. With after hours events at the Star Theater. They said this is a smaller event than the summer festival and is designed to be more personal.

“This way people will be able to get in contact a little bit more with each other, be able to learn from each other, and play around with some themes in steampunk like this year is rag-time, that would be really hard to do in a bigger venue,” said Big River Steampunk Spring Faire Co-Organizer Kenneth Marks.

Tickets for the whole weekend are $29 for adults and $15 for kids.
