If you joined us for our 4th annual Atlanta Steampunk Expo, "Steampunk Atlantis!" this year, then you may already have the inside scoop on what to expect for next year.
Queen Victoria's Aquanauts gathered to explore the once lost underwater city of Atlantis on February 11, 12, and 13, 2022. While there, they discovered that the city wasn't lost at all — in fact, it was still home to an underwater civilization of Atlanteans!
These peaceful seafolk and Her Royal Majesty sat in congress Saturday afternoon, and a peaceful treaty was struck. Inspired, Queen Victoria has set her gaze on a new age of exploration — but where to next? After plumbing the depths of the sea, only one frontier seemed the most suitable. The final frontier.
At the 2022 Closing Ceremonies for "Steampunk Atlantis," Queen V announced she'll once more be sending her finest explorers out into the unknown. Now re-titled as Her Royal Majesty's Aethernauts, we invite you all to join us February 10, 11, and 12, 2023 for:
"Steampunks in Space!" We are taking our faithful submarine and trading it in for an airship to the stars, with the ultimate goal of reaching Venus (where our illustrious Captain BillBill Harrison has had a trading post set up for some years). And that is not all.
With a new type of vehicle comes a new type of port. With heartfelt thanks to the DoubleTree by Hilton Atlanta Perimeter Dunwoody for being our host for the last two splendid years, we are most pleased to announce that ASE will be moving to Atlanta Marriott Northeast/Emory Area (Century Center) for our 2023 festivities!
This new port of call touts twice the space we had this past year — the perfect location to build an airship capable of sailing the stars! In addition to a bigger ballroom space, we'll have 2 amphitheaters, a sizable gaming area, a unique tea room experience we can't wait to tell you all about, a dedicated Youth Academy space, and a few other special surprises.

But that's not all... we have two very special guests we will be announcing soon, as well as the theme of this year's Friday Night Formal Ball, and one of this year's Atlantean dignitaries will be staying on with our ragtag crew of aethernauts and rumor has it they have something very special planned for the ship's entertainment on Saturday night. How tantalizing!
