The second annual Tell-Tale Steampunk Festival is currently in the works in North Baltimore, MD for Sat/Sun, April 20-21, 2024.  The venue will be DoubleTree, Baltimore North/Pikesville.

  • Jewelry
  • Leather
  • Women’s clothing
Vendor Hall Spaces, 8′ x 10′:
  • $190
  • 2 weekend passes per space
  • Discounted weekend passes for other helpers
Sponsorship,  $45 (same for both author tables and vendor hall spaces)
  • 1 extra weekend pass
  • Listing on website
  • Shout out on Facebook
  • Listing your booth name in on the website and added to signage/decor
  • Friday night load-in.
  • Having the search/find symbol/scavenger hunt game (2023 was the raven) in your booth.
  • Option to either Judge a competition or participate/run a panel
  • Choice of booth space on a first come first serve basis (choice will be given the minute payment has been received)
Author Tables, 6′ x 3′ table with 3′ space behind:
  •  $100
  • 1 weekend pass per table
  • Discounted weekend passes for other helpers

Note electric hookup is provided by the hotel for an extra fee. (This is unfortunately not negotiable).  

What can we offer?

  • A carefully chosen limited number of vendors to ensure that there is a reasonable ratio of humans to vendors.
  • Last year we sold: 425 tickets with a paid attendance of 375, this does not include performers, volunteers and any comped tickets that were used. 
  • Floor plan and schedule of events is planned to be given to vendors approximately 3 weeks out from the event.
  • Access to both Kolleen and Donna both before and during the event.
  • Marketing tools for your use to market your booth on your business sites (links to event website, FB, etc.)

    Please note, loading will be Saturday morning (unless you are a sponsor) and load out is Sunday after the show.
