Welcome to the Great GeekFest!
The Great GeekFest is a celebration of all the things people geek out over. Come and share what you’re geeky for in the home of all geekdoms: the Library. Whether you’re a die hard cosplayer, a video game nut or a casual fan there’s something to entertain you all day.
Admission is FREE and all ages are welcome to attend. We've even got an area for the littlest of "geeks."
Check out our Instagram feed all this month to get sneak peeks into what artists, authors, games, movie screenings and food trucks you can expect to see at the Great GeekFest!
