Welcome to Geekstravaganza 2010
Why: Geeks like to do good works!
How Much: TBA
Geekstravaganza is a charity geekfest the Austin Browncoats host to raise money for a worthy cause while uniting Geeks, Nerds and Browncoats alike. Last year, we supported SafePlace, in their goal to end sexual and domestic violence through safety, healing, prevention and social change.
Each Geekstravaganza, we invite a new musical act to regale us in song (as we do our best Carlton dance). Last year, we were honored to have Marian Call, a geek goddess, visiting our section of the 'verse.
We also had an All-Geek Talent Show, All-Nerd Costume Contest and Sci-Fi SAT. Winners got to bring home fabulous prizes and proudly let their geek banners fly! In 2007, our talent show winner was Austin's own Ernie Cline, writer of geek favorite, Fanboys.
There is more! We even had some awesomely geeky (verging on a little too cool) demonstrations and an Air Combat tournament judged by Austin's favorite ninjas, Cry Havoc. What's Air Combat? Check it out!
