Event Description

Join the Flaming Lotus Girls, Airpusher, & NIMBY for the 3rd Annual Steampunk Masquerade Promenade: starring Serpent Mother!!!

Dust off your top hat and hop in your favorite steam engine for the adventure of a lifetime!

Three amazing groups are turning NIMBY into a legendary evening to remember! Flaming Lotus Girl’s Serpent Mother will be ON FIRE for the first time in 2 years! She will be featured amongst 6 stages of music including international talent Slynk & Timothy Wisdom, a mutant vehicle round-up, interactive art, fire performers, aerialists, and MORE! 

Join us early for our Interactive Arts Happy Hour! Meet the artists, bid on great art in the silent auction, create custom wearable art at the screen-printing station, and play with interactive art pieces. 

Don’t miss this special opportunity to meet The Serpent Mother!

Here is what’s in store for us so far:


♫ - SLYNK - (Australia - Adapted / Ghetto Funk / Disco Cakes)

With the overwhelming support and love from the world’s most respected funky breaks producers behind him, Slynk's reputation for dropping instant­ smile­ provoking supreme ­'80s ­nu-funk ­flavored boogie bass has been growing world-wide!


♫ - TIMOTHY WISDOM - (Canada - Ghetto Funk / Bombastic Jam / Resoul Records)

Wisdom's sets fuse live MCing, singing, turntablism and incredible hype into a slamming show. Dubbed as the “Voice of Ghetto Funk”, his performances are unique sessions, filled with spontaneous lyrical content and a charisma that lifts audiences off their feet!
