What is GeekFest?
We wanted to bring a small, manageable show to the area surrounding our shop so we started SJ GeekFest. It’s our second show at this location but we are getting a huge show of support. With 652 attendees the first show let’s see what SJ can do! We just want to bring folks together to appreciate their own version of geek. The floor will be 1/2 vendors and 1/4 artists/game devs/youtube-web folk and 1/4 tournaments/open board game play.
We want to put on a small, one day con in southern NJ to have some fun with our geeky interests.
What type of geek are you?
The word geek is a slang term originally used to describe eccentric or non-mainstream people, with different connotations ranging from “an expert or enthusiast” to “a person heavily interested in a hobby”, with a general pejorative meaning of “a peculiar or otherwise dislikable person, especially one who is perceived to be overly intellectual”. Although often considered as a pejorative, the term is also used self-referentially without malice or as a source of pride. Its meaning has evolved to connote “someone who is interested in a subject (usually intellectual or complex) for its own sake.”
Admission is $5 in advance and $8 at the door. Children 10 and younger are free with a paid adult. No outside food or drink is allowed. No alcohol is allowed on the premises.
