What is Geek &Comic Con?

You may be wondering, well, what is the annual Geek & Comic Con?  But that's what I'm here for! Each year the Evansville Museum shows appreciation for all things "geek culture" and features it in their convention. There's everything from panels, cosplay contests, board games, vendor room, and more!  Oh! Did I mention food?  Kim's Chuck Wagon and Jeanne's Gelato on the Go will also be there so you can fill up on delicious food and treats between events.

When is Geek & Comic Con?

Geek & Comic Con will take place on Saturday, August 27th at the Evansville Museum of Arts, History, and Science and starts at 11 AM.

A Celebration of Geek Culture

At the annual Geek and Comic Con you'll see all kinds of things from geek culture (which ironically we think is the cooler part of the culture).  According to their Facebook event page (which you should follow for the latest updates),  you can expect to see the Greater Evansville Steampunk Society (did you know we had a steampunk society?! That's awesome!), Wibbly Wobbly CraftsBatsu Adventures, and My Photography Event powered by Roebling Photographics.  The photographer will be photographing around the event, and you can purchase your cosplay photos, which is awesome!
