Nerd Nite Carnival! 

Saturday September 23, 6pm-9pm

Attend: Free!

Speed-dating: tickets available at the show 


I’ve got three words for you:


No speakers this time around, just nerds who want to hang out and socialize. Also, speed-dating for nerds looking for nerd-affection. Maybe a nerd scavenger hunt with fabulous Nerd Nite prizes. Oh, and tacos and drinks and stuff. Cosplay and Halloween costume testing is welcome, too! Maybe someone on stilts? Maybe even a photobooth or selfie station?! <YOUR FUN IDEA HERE?!>

Nerd parties have nerd music. Towards that end, we are bringing in a very special guest– The Persona (set at 8:30p). Earlier in the evening we’ll have nerdy tunes playing.

Nerd Nite’s proceeds from the event will be donated to http://tejasbarrios.org/a-just-harvey-recovery-fund/, so come out and party for a good cause!

We’ll have folks from the Austin Film Festival, the Austin Tinkering School, and a few other places tabling to give you some ideas about fun nerdy things to do around town. We’ll also have Sketches By KimbroughArt selling art and doing live sketches.

Put it on your calendar right meow!

Coming to hang out is free, and speed-dating will be first-come, first-served, and you can pay on the spot.

This is a rare Saturday Nerd Nite event, so come down and hang out with us on an actual weekend night! It’s early enough that you can do this thing AND the other thing you want to do (whatever that is)!

If you have a nerdy or nerd-friendly event coming up, need nerdy volunteers for your organization or project, or want us to promote your event on the North Door’s amazing giant screen, please ping Amy to make arrangements.


Nerd Nite 96- TBA on Wednesday October 11, 2017
