Event Details

Join The Charlotte Geeks as we celebrate our 8th Geek Gala!  

WE'VE EXPANDED!  

Now you can join us from Friday Night, October 21st for Friday Night Flicks and Marathon Boardgaming - then stick around on Saturday for our brand new "Muggles Market" and Artist's Wallway - where you can buy handcrafted curiousities and eccentricities at our one-day bazaar.   We'll still have more boardgaming tournaments, our Geek Short Film Fest, and city-wide Gala Quest!

Then join us Saturday night for the Main Event!  

Our featured acts include (with more to come):  

  • Mikey Mason
  • Mon Frere Sketch Comedy
  • The Comedic Stylings of Matt & Abby
  • 8th Annual Geeks Got Talent Contest

 

Please Note:  We have changed locations!  This year we are thrilled to be at the Hilton Charlotte Executive Park!  

And this year's charity is the Dave Thomas Foundation in memory of Christina Paquette and foster and adoptive kids everywhere!
