GeekOut is an all-out celebration of artists, creators, and innovators in downtown Asheville!
On Friday August 12, GeekOut kicks off with a costumed promenade in the park and Geektastic: A Burlesque Revue. On Saturday August 13, enjoy shows for all ages, art, games, costumes, and food at the GeekOut Day Festival. Then if you’re over 18, groove to great music at our on-site after-party.
At this 1.5 day festival, you’ll experience art as it’s created, interact with inspiring makers, and meet new friends who are passionate like you are!
This year, GeekOut spotlights tech-inspired regional arts of all kinds. In keeping with the theme, you’ll meet artists who push the boundaries of “traditional” art by blending electronic influences with their craft. Robots, steampunk, circuitry, and high-tech gadgets are fair game here!
We’re excited to take over a new venue for GeekOut 2016! At 38 N. French Broad, this multi-level concert space offers 2 stages, 3 halls, and an outdoor arena. With food and drink on site and free parking nearby, you’ll probably want to stay awhile!
