I'm just curious if there's anything going on near Newport, Tennessee. I've been searching like crazy haven't really found anything.
I think that Big Daddy Cool might be best to answer this one. He's from the area.
Assuming that DieselPunks are pretty much always welcome at SteamPunk events than yes, there is something coming up very near you: http://www.marblecitycomicon.com/steampunk.html
