Old Tucson and the Arizona Steampunk Society present the Wild Wild West Con 5 Convention & Steampunk Festival on Friday, March 4 thru Sunday, March 6, 2016 from 10:00 am to 6:00 pm.  
Wild Wild West Con is America's first and only Steampunk convention/festival to take place in a western-themed town and is the largest Western-style Steampunk Convention in the United States! Hundreds of devotees will descend upon Old Tucson outfitted in full Steampunk regalia. The Con’s Journey AroundThe World theme is sure to be reflected in Steampunk fashion and accessories.  
Visitors to Old Tucson will get a glimpse of this visual phenomenon where it belongs - in an Old West setting. The unique atmosphere of Victorian sensibilities combined with retro-futuristic technology presents guests with fabulous photo opportunities as well as access to selected Con activities including the WWWC5 Steampunk Costume Contest, a Kids Zone, a Steampunk vendor village with more than 60 vendors, street performers and Old Tucson shows and activities.
Old Tucson admission is $17.95 for adults and $10.95 for children ages 4 to 11 (children 3 and under are admitted free).

Convention registrants have access to more than 80 panels and workshops, the very popular fashion show, and Meet & Greets with many of the artists and musicians over the three days of the convention. Evening concerts (separately ticketed) will feature Steam Powered Giraffe and Dry River Yacht Club (Friday only) and The Men That Will Not Be Blamed for Nothing and The Peculiar Pretzelmen (Saturday only).
Convention information, passes and concert tickets are available at https://www.wildwestcon.com/. Three-day Aristocrat Passes are sold out. Three-day Maverick Passes ($64 adults/$44 children ages 7-11) and 1-day Explorer Passes ($41 adults/$34 children ages 7-11) are still available. Con passes also will be on sale at Old Tucson during the event.
WWWC4 will benefit Kids Need to Read, a non-profit organization that works to create a culture of reading for children by providing inspiring books to underfunded schools, libraries, and literacy programs across the United States, especially those serving disadvantaged children.
Old Tucson is Southern Arizona’s premier location and has been immortalized in over 300 feature films and TV Westerns since 1939.
