Vamers - Events - Geek Fest 2013 by The Dark Carnival - Banner

Geek Fest 2013 is a fantastic new annual initiative by The Dark Carnivala South African online retailer that specialises in all kinds of Shut Up and Take My Money goods.

The Dark Carnival hopes to make Geek Fest the premier trade fair for geek related merchandise and entertainment; basically a place where the whole family can enjoy robot wars, Star Wars marathons, cosplay and a bunch of interesting shows and great prizes.

The event sounds really good, just watch the message by The Joker and Harley Quinn below, and appears to be much better organised than the debacle that was South African Comic-Con.

The event is taking place this weekend, Saturday 31st August 2013, from 09:00 at the Gold Fields Kennel Club in Bedfordview.

Tickets can be bought through Webtickets (R40 for adults, R20 for children under 12) or on the day (R50 for adults, R25 for children under 12).

For a full schedule of the event, including rules and regulations for the robot wars and cosplay, please visit the official Geek Fest events page on Facebook.

See you there!
