Great GeekFest becomes Great GeekWeek for 2020!

Great GeekWeek 2020

October 11 – 18 | Virtual Events Daily

 

The Great GeekFest is a celebration of all the things people geek out over, sharing what they’re geeky for in the home of all geekdoms – the Library.

This year, the Great GeekFest transforms into Great GeekWeek, an entire week of fandom-filled virtual gatherings. Cosplay, gaming, movie buffs and casual fans will all find something to pique their interest. Events are always FREE and all ages are welcome to attend.

A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away... the Library hosted a comic-con!

Cosplay

The Great GeekFest Cosplay Contest is an event in which participants of all ages can show off their best original cosplay with a chance to win fantastic prizes. This year we will be accepting virtual entries, via the form below.

A couple rules before you submit your costume:

  • There are no age categories this year. That means there’s one prize to rule them all.
  • Cosplays will be judged based on overall quality of construction, accuracy of your character, and presentation. 
  • All photos must be appropriate for all ages.
  • Group costumes are allowed, but the prize will go to the person submitting the cosplay via the form.

The deadline for submission is midnight/12 AM on Wednesday, October 14. Winner will be announced via Facebook livestream on Sunday, October 18.

Screenings

As part of Geek Week, join Library Guy, Luke for a virtual watch party and movie riff!

Tune in to the Delaware County District Library’s YouTube page on Wednesday, October 13th at 7 p.m. for a virtual watch party with riffing by Library Guy and resident movie geek, Luke and a special guest riffer. We’ll riff on the Roger Corman classic Bucket of Blood.* Though this bad/scary movie wasn’t giving an official rating, we’d give it a PG13-lite. Not all scenes will be appropriate for younger audiences.
