July 30 – Aug 2 – GeekyCon (5,000 attendees)
GeekyCon celebrates everything about being a fan. It blends the nerdy fun of a Comic Con with the community and excitement of South by Southwest in a uniquely intimate environment where fans can finally be their true selves — where that is the coolest thing in the world to be!
We take pride in having some of the most uniquely geeky programming around. Our programs change every year and many of them are run by our attendees themselves. Past programs have included everything from book clubs, improv lessons, shipping discussions, Disney sing-a-longs, and crafting tutorials, to a showing of Twilight: Breaking Dawn with live commentary from Maureen Johnson, Robin Wasserman, and Buffy’s Amber Benson. It doesn’t get much more uniquely geeky than that! http://www.geekycon.com/
