What is GeekFest?

Geekfest is a small passionate convention born and bred in Southern New Jersey. After FOUR very successful and fun shows at this location we are getting a huge show of support. We have had more than 6000+ attendees, volunteers, vendors and guests in two short years with four amazing shows!  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.

Mission

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.”
