Special Events

GeekFest

geekfestlogoFriday, July 17
While we might know that time is just a big ball of wibbley-wobbly, timey-wimey stuff...we must state (for muggles' sake) that the fest runs from 6:00 p.m. – 11:00 p.m.


Whether your brown coat gets dusty as you knock about the 'verse or you long to fight the dark side of the force, the Boonshoft Museum is hosting a night of fun and games to bring out the geek in all of us! Marvel at the super-skills of other attendees -- or show off your own! -- at a videogame tournament, show off your best side at the DIY photobooth, test your reflexes with game demos on one of the biggest screens in town or on classic arcade consoles, and even win prizes by playing a round or two in the board gaming area. Costumes are welcome, and prizes will be awarded in several categories.
