2017 Events of the League

Events are listed in calendar order for the entire year.

Recommendations for members of the League of Proper Villains, recent and not: Please feel free to RSVP 'Interested' on Facebook to any and all events that you might not have a chance to attend so that you will see details about the event. We suggest this because it gives you an opportunity to stay in touch with all of your Villain friends and stay abreast of what is happening at our events, even though sadly you might not be attending.

Also see this list of dates for known events going on around us.

To RSVP to any of our events, check our Facebook page and RSVP on the events page, or write to events@sacvillains.com and tell us your name (real or Villain) and which event you plan to attend. We like to know how many minions are attending to make sure we have adequate space and supplies. On some events an RSVP is required in order to attend.

We have yet to lock-in details for the events in 2017, however, we have many themes and dates set. Here's what we have so far. Keep in mind that all of this is subject to change.


January 14 - Villains in January

Saturday, Jan 14 at 6:30pm El Tapatio 5637 Sunrise Blvd, Citrus Heights, California

Let's start the year off right with our favorite theme; Ourselves! Come to our dinner and get to be the first to hear of our coming plans for world domination. It's going to be a busy year and and we want everyone to have a big head start. We'll tell you about our monthly events for the first half of the year, where we'll challenge you with exciting themes and some great projects and invasions. Win a prize and bragging rights as we hold contests associated with our themes.
To start the year off, we want to see your most evil hat/chapeau. Wear it to the meet and our Cabinet will award you for the best designs.



Saturday February 11 - Evil Disney

Claimstake Brewing - 11366 Monier Park Pl, Rancho Cordova, California 95742

Disney doesn't have to be sweetness and light. Maleficent. Scar. The Red Queen. Ursula. Darth Vader. Lovely villains all. But why stop there? It takes but a nudge to throw a hero from light into shadow. Would Snow White have been quite so chipper if the queen have pushed a little harder? Would Cinderella have been quite so forgiving without the Chipmunks to help swab the floors? Darken your Disney and add a bit of steam. Stir the pot and add an apple for luck...Or more nefarious purposes. Join us in February for Dark Disney. Awards for best costumes.

This event is a test of a new location: Claimstake Brewing in Rancho Cordova. It's down South Sunrise in an industrial area. They only serve microbew beer but a food truck sets up at the side of the building. The menu is below. The event is early because of the limited hours they are allowed to be open. This location allows us to be far away from the mundane world while doing our more 'unusual' costumes.


Saturday March 11 - Myths and Legends

Location and Details TBA

Myths, legends, fits of fantasy. Who says an elf can't come from the world of steam? Aragorn in a top hat with a cane sword? Why not? Faerie with clockwork wings? Absolutely! Dragon in a bowler? Of course we'll invite him to tea. Mulan or Maui or Perseus strolling the streets of Victorian London? Time to bring them to life! Myths and legends of steam. Bring them to our March dinner. Awards to the best costumes!

Villains Rule at Clockwork Alchemy 2017

Thursday - Monday, May 25-29 - DoubleTree by Hilton 2050 Gateway Pl, San Jose, CA

For one glorious weekend, the temporal rifts tying San Jose, California, to a world that might have been, and indeed, to alternate worlds beyond, shall be opened for a grand meeting of minds and hearts. Join the adventure of Clockwork Alchemy at the San Jose DoubleTree Hotel during Memorial Day Weekend, May 26–29, 2017.

Clockwork Alchemy is the highlight event of our year. 'CA' is more than an invasion for the LOPV. Here we mix with members of the steampunk community from all over the world.
Come see the Villains Secret Lair in the Artist’s Gallery, visit with our own Penelope Dreadfulle, who will be signing books and penning the latest scandals for the offices of the Blackfriars Courant in Authors Alley. Join this event and watch this page for special Villain news and updates. We will be posting extra sign-up events for volunteers to help us with our diabolical plans and enlighten the patrons of the convention on the joys and benefits of proper villainy. There are rewards for volunteering!
In addition, our own Dr. Blackheart has taken over the Artists Gallery at Clockwork Alchemy and has a message for all steampunk artists: "My aim is for a truly immersive environment to show off YOUR talents as an artist! The art of steampunk is all about personal creativity. We innovate, we re-purpose, we give life to the otherwise drab and mundane surroundings of our lives. To become part of this legendary display, submit an application at the link below. Submissions must be received by April 30, and remember, all weaponry must be non-fire able and all doomsday devices must be disabled."
