Cogs and Corsets: A Steampunk Happening

June 1 @ 4:00 pm - June 3 @ 2:00 pm

| $5

The Cogs & Corsets festival takes place throughout six square blocks of historic Downtown Bloomington. This area is home to over 90 shops, galleries, and restaurants… many in historic buildings with ties to Abraham Lincoln. The galleries will be featuring local artists’ new work and even hosting visiting artists whose pieces exude that Steampunk vibe. The Museum of History will be the site of history presentations and our Tea Room, and one block away a stunning Tesla Coil demonstration will light the night. Enjoy tours, dining, sideshow entertainment, workshops (and of course, tea!) in restored buildings from the 1860s–1930s. The streets will be bustling with the costume contest, promenade, Splendid Teapot Races, and Makers’ Faire contestants… we can’t wait to see you here! Check out the list of participating businesses for this month’s First Friday, Map and business listing 2018-Cogs
