GeekFest 2021

Welcome to GeekFest 2021 Central! Here you can find event details, Vendors, Parking Maps, Printables for contests and more!

First Things First... How We're Keeping You Safe!


While we're still having this event, due to current continued events we also need to keep safety in mind for our vendors and attendees.


Also we have applied for state grants, so whether you agree with our policies or not, the brutal truth is that if we do not enforce these PA State Mandates for events we run the very real risk of having our business license revoked and any grants forfeited. So if you'd like to support us and see us stay in business, please be kind to our vendors, other attendees, and follow these guidelines:


  • Wear a mask. If you don't, a disposable one will be provided for you.
  • Sanitize your hands. Sanitizing stations are set up both at the event entrance by the Nerdvana Outpost tent and inside the store.
  • Keep your distance. We might be sick of the term "social distancing," but please keep distance between your group and others. If a vendor's booth is full, move on to another and make your way back to them later.
  • Be kind and courteous. We expect this to be a fun event for everyone and you can help us make it that way!

Our Sponsors


We're excited to have Shoestring Scientists back this year as our primary sponsor! Shoestring Scientists' goal is to make neat things out of boring things... on a budget.

Made 2 Be Crafts & Crochet is behind our social media vendor highlights and has helped us get the word out for our event.

Stop by their tent and support them!
