What is GeekFest?
Geekfest is a small/medium sized, manageable show born and bread in Southern New Jersey. After three very successful and fun shows at this location we are getting a huge show of support. With 652 attendees at the April 2014 show and 1253 at the Fall 2014 and now 2491 for the April 2015 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 divided into vendors and artists/game devs/youtube-web folk and some tournaments/open board game play.
We want to put on a small/medium, 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 dis-likable 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.”
