We went down to Port Townsend for their Steampunk festival for the first time last weekend and were delighted.  The town is a Victorian era jewel, the Queen of Hearts croquet tournament was completely mad and the people - Steampunks and civilians alike - were charming. 

I've never been to a non hotel convention so I wasn't sure how it would be to wander about a town in costume while most of the people around you are in civvies but we were so well received that I enjoyed it more than being indoors.  Our hotel was right near the festival centre so it was easy to pop back for a rest and refresh.  Well, relatively easy; many many stairs to our wonderful room.
It is a very young festival and starting small but if you get the chance to go next year I Highly recommend it.
