Travel Back in Time at Geek Fair 2015!

We have met some delightful people in the process of organizing Geek Fair 2015 at the Longmont Museum. Some of these people even seemed to be appearing to us from across vast distances of time but that is what the Society for Creative Anachronism is all about. Who would have guessed that. right here in Longmont, Colorado, we would have the chance to be in the presence of royalty from the Barony of Caer Galen?

They may be royal but they are also very approachable and love to show off all their amazing artifacts from the past. Even we don’t know what they will bring to Geek Fair, except for adventure, of course. Wherever they go, adventure follows!

There is adventure for all ages at Geek Fair!

The Barony of Caer Galen is a part of the Society for Creative Anachronism, a non-profit, educational organization dedicated to the study and re-creation of the best aspects of the Middle Ages and Renaissance. Caer Galen is located mainly in Boulder, Broomfield, and Weld Counties in Colorado.

Hurry! We must call a truce in time for Geek Fair!

The Longmont Museum and Cultural Center and Grey Havens YA bring you the Cultural Resources and Geek Fair 2015!

On Sunday, September 20, 2015 from 1:30-4:30 p.m., the Longmont Museum and Grey Havens YA will bring out the geeky side of Longmont’s teachers, students and their families with the first annual Geek Fair, part of Longmont Museum’s Cultural Resources Fair. The Cultural Resources Fair is a fun way for Longmont to honor its teachers and introduce them to the many resources that can make their jobs easier. The geeky part, well, that’s for everyone!

Geek Fair will feature cosplayers from Jedi knights to medieval knights, free make-and-take miniatures, a host of geeky organizations from throughout the region, a Geeky Educators panel and a roundtable discussion aimed at creating a supportive, local geek network.

How do YOU geek? You will probably find it at Geek Fair! All ages are welcome. Admission to the museum’s inspiring “Robots Rising” exhibit is free to all teachers and their families. Geek Fair is free to all! Cosplay is strongly encouraged for all in attendance.
