Take a journey back in time during Historic Downtown Poteau’s Pioneer and Steampunk Festival! HDP has been gearing up for this event for awhile and it looks to be one of the biggest things to hit Poteau in years. Experience the excitement as gunfighters battle it out on the streets in downtown Poteau. Take the family on a ride in the old fashioned horse drawn carriage. Discover the history of Bonnie and Clyde in Poteau, or catch a glimpse of the Choctaw Dancers! It’s all in the works!
But wait, there’s more!
What would Poteau be like without the technological revolution? Discover SteamPunk! Experience life in an alternate reality, where gears and steam make the world go ’round. Are you a maker or a costume designer? Try your hand out in the Steampunk Contests! Be amazed with performances by Chris Draven and Todd Fischer!
