The Artifice Club is a group of those who are dedicated to sharing their love of steampunk and other retro-expression that is based in Georgia.
They have been great at supporting small businesses and events throughout the country that shares an interest in the steampunk community, and have many amazing panels in their Alternate History Track. Right now, they are running a poll on what events should return in 2017 in a Facebook group. In the Southern U.S. and interested in steampunk? You should definitely check them out!
