There’s so much to do!

Cogs & Corsets Steampunk Happening brings you all the fun and frivolity you expect from a Steampunk event, surrounded by the historic architecture of Downtown Bloomington, Illinois. Our event has activities and fun for all ages, and most of it is FREE!


Look for headline entertainment every year at Cogs & Corsets!

Some of the acts we’ve brought to the Cogs & Corsets stage in the past include John Sprocket of The Cog is Dead fame, and Arc Attack from the America’s Got Talent stage.


Test your skills at the many contests we have to offer.

Some of our staples include a costume contest, Nerf gun dueling, parasol dueling and dirigible racing.

Family Fun

Cogs & Corsets is open to the entire family. We try to have something for every age group. There are STEAM workshops, make-it-n-take-it workshops, panel discussions, a vendor market for shopping and after-hours adult only fun.
