Thank you for registering for the 2016 Ken®vention!


Get ready for a steampunk filled weekend of fun, friendship, dolls and charity as the members of the He’s A Doll! Club are honored to present the 2016 Ken®vention - Ken® Carson’s Wild Wild West!

It’s the late 1800’s, we have come out of the American Civil War, we are going through an industrial revolution, the Victorian era is in full swing and the west is still wild.

Enter a world of science fiction and fantasy set in the American "Wild West"  and 19th-century Victorian era inspired by Steam powered machinery, creativity and imagination. Envision what life would have been like if the modern technologies of our century had been achieved by the people of the 19th century all employing steam power. The Steampunk genre encompasses not only modern utilitarian objects, but also a unique personal style. The clothes are not strictly Western or Victorian, but include technological gadgets and gears or hints of a more advanced and adventurous life than a typical old West or Victorian citizen likely enjoyed.

Join us for a Western Steampunk convention adventure of a lifetime.  Full of fun and excitement, gadgets and gizmos and (of course) a souvenir Ken® Doll representing our theme to add to your collection.


Steampunk- "What the past would look like if the future had happened sooner."

The convention events officially start on Thursday evening with the Steamboat Gambler Welcome Reception and Silent Auction, then it's adventures of the Wild West with Showdown in Carson City Dinner Event Friday evening, and finally, Great Steam Locomotive Dinner Event Saturday evening.

While in town, mosey over to "The Blacksmith's" Workshops which are fun, informative and Industrious! Test your luck partner in the "The Caboose" Raffle Room.  Showcase your creative side in our "Mechanical Gear" Competition and make sure to join us for our "Outlaws" Live Auction which benefits our 2016 Kenvention Auction Charity Be Like Brit.  The Live Auction will feature items by our inventive designers from around the world. 100% of the proceeds from the Live Auction will be donated to the charity. Shop "The Emporium" room sales and be sure to join us in the evenings at the "Boiler Room Saloon" lounge.

He’s A Doll! club members would like to thank you for joining us! We look forward seeing old friends, making new friends and building memorable moments!
