Welcome to the NEW International Steampunk Symposium
with your host, Captain Medea Asherah
Founded in 2012, The International Steampunk Symposium is an annual three day festival in Cincinnati, Ohio. The weekend’s programming includes workshops, music, entertainment, exhibits, an eclectic vendor hall, and our signature event…The Steampunk Olympiad.
With the help of a stellar Symposium crew, many enthusiastic guests, volunteers and creatives, this annual Steampunk celebration “Under the Big Top” is sure to be the best one yet!
Since 2014, the Steampunk Symposium has partnered with NAMI (National Alliance on Mental Illness) to help them increase awareness and stop the stigma of mental illness. All ticket sales for the Olympiad games goes to support this wonderful organization, and the fact that anyone can participate in the games mirrors the inclusivity that we want to see in the world.
Make sure to mark your calendars so you don’t miss this great event! This is YOUR circus and YOUR monkeys!

Our Dedicated Organizer of the International Steampunk Symposium
In 2022 the doors looked to be closing forever on the dandiest Steampunk weekend event in Cincinnati, Ohio. Things looked bleak. That is, until one plucky Steampunk inspired Captain Asherah to try her hand at running a convention. The rest… is history.
CAPTAIN MEDEA ASHERAH
Captain Medea Asherah (she who walks above the sea) a.k.a. Jennifer Noran, has been the Captain of the Airship Caduceus out of Lexington, Kentucky since 2016. The inspiration for becoming Captain of an Airship was fueled by a friend who suggested visiting The International Steampunk Symposium in 2015, “to find out what this “steampunk business” was all about. She immediately fell in love with the clothing, competitions and camaraderie of Steampunk. Along with attending Steampunk events, she started creating logos and designs for such projects as the Kentucky Steampunk Society, The Chicago Steampunk Exposition, The Traveling Revelers, The Atlanta Steampunk Exposition, The Airship Caduceus and in 2022 for The International Steampunk Symposium.
NAMI, the National Alliance on Mental Illness, is the nation's largest grassroots mental health organization dedicated to building better lives for the millions of Americans affected by mental illness. They provide advocacy, education, support and public awareness so that all families affected by mental illness can build better lives.
