If you’re into cosplayers, roleplaying games, video games, geek podcasts, burlesque, LARPing, steampunk music, and sci-fi, and you understand the significance of stormtroopers fighting Klingons (pictured above), then Geekfest Montreal is an event for you! Fortunately, it’s this weekend!
This is the event’s fifth year and it has grown bigger than ever!
WHAT TO EXPECT
If you’ve ever been to a comiccon, FanExpo, Retro Expo, or similar convention, well, that’s what you can expect! What I like about the premise of this event in particular is that there’s no hidden message here… it’s an event by geeks for geeks! Geek, of course refers to being really, really into something. And trust me, the individuals coming to this event love their geekdom!
