Pirates, Vampires, and Steampunks Invade New Jersey

It’s been a good time to be a geek in New Jersey as of recent. Conventions for all sorts of geeky things are going to be happening in the next month. Piscataway recently played host to the largest ever Steampunk world fair combining the nostalgia of Victorian England with the technology of science fiction. Imagine a hotel filled with 3,500 people dressed like Abraham Lincoln and carrying fake ray guns and you have a Steampunk convention.


This picture describes it better than I ever could.

If Steampunk isn’t your thing, perhaps piracy is. In a few weeks the Ocean County Fairgrounds is going to host the The First Annual New Jersey Pirates and Privateers Weekend, complete with a pirate ship and live pirate music. There is also the Official Vampire Diaries Convention coming in July if you happen to be a fan of that show or a nocturnal blood drinking enthusiast. Or perhaps you would rather go to the Geek Creation Show in Parsippany, showing off all sorts of video games and creative gadgets with all proceeds going towards building a museum dedicated to every nerd’s favorite inventor, Nicola Tesla.

Although these sorts of conventions have been growing across the world, New Jersey in particular has seen a higher growth than many other places. It is a very densely populated state crammed between two of the country’s most populated cities and often it is much cheaper to host smaller conventions such as these in New Jersey rather than downtown New York or Philadelphia. If you’re into nerdy things, New Jersey is certainly a great place to be this month.
