Subgenres Event Hub

All Our Event Information and Tickets In One Awesome Place! 

We realized that scattered event pages, multiple ticket systems, and the sheer amount of events that we are offering  demanded a centralized hub that our attendees could go to to quickly discover all the things, and buy tickets for all the things. It was time to make things simple. And, so we did. 

Our Subgenres Event Hub on Eventbrite is our solution to providing a one stop shop for our attendees to find out about our events, and see which ones they wish to go to. When you visit the Subgenres Event Hub you will find all of the upcoming shenanigans we have in store.  You will see all the important dates to note and ticket prices. If you wish to find out more about the various events there is information provided for you to quickly get the gist of what we are offering. 

Please use and enjoy our Subgenres Event Hub and we look forward to seeing you at our events in the future.

We proudly promote respect for the kraken and all it's brethren, including but not limited too, squids, octopi, jellyfish, and cuttlefish. We believe that these beautiful creatures are blessed children o̶f̶ ̶t̶h̶e̶ ̶G̶r̶e̶a̶t̶ ̶d̶r̶e̶a̶m̶e̶r̶ ̶C̶h̶u̶t̶h̶u̶l̶u̶,̶ ̶t̶h̶e̶ ̶H̶i̶g̶h̶ ̶P̶r̶i̶e̶s̶t̶ ̶o̶f̶ ̶t̶h̶e̶ ̶E̶l̶d̶e̶r̶ ̶G̶o̶d̶s̶,̶ ̶a̶n̶d̶ ̶t̶h̶a̶t̶ ̶b̶y̶ ̶h̶o̶n̶o̶u̶r̶i̶n̶g̶ ̶t̶h̶e̶m̶ ̶w̶e̶ ̶w̶i̶l̶l̶ ̶r̶e̶c̶e̶i̶v̶e̶ ̶p̶i̶t̶y̶ ̶w̶h̶e̶n̶ ̶t̶h̶e̶ ̶O̶l̶d̶ ̶O̶n̶e̶ ̶r̶i̶s̶e̶s̶ ̶t̶o̶ ̶b̶r̶i̶n̶g̶ ̶o̶n̶ ̶h̶i̶s̶ ̶r̶e̶i̶g̶n̶ ̶o̶f̶ ̶m̶a̶d̶n̶e̶s̶s̶ ̶a̶n̶d̶ ̶t̶e̶r̶r̶o̶r̶ that deserve to be protected.

Of course this is all in tongue and cheek, typical Steampunk humour. Our group is all about creating a central community that all Steampunks can enjoy. We want to offer a thriving, vibrant, and active Steampunk hub to Winnipeg's denizens and beyond that is actively functioning throughout the year. If you are not from Winnipeg and wish to be a part of our community we welcome you as well. We are the centre of Canada, it is about time we became the centre of Steampunk in Canada. 


Thank you for your interest in our humble group! Please check our Facebook page for upcoming events, connecting with other Steampunks, and being a part of a hands on and active Steampunk Community. P̶r̶a̶i̶s̶e̶ ̶C̶h̶u̶t̶h̶u̶l̶u̶!̶
