Hey, Nerdfriends!

Due to the current situation with COVID-19, we will be live-streaming our events until further notice. Our beloved venue  The North Door has closed. The folks at The North Door have been a family to us here at Nerd Nite Austin, and our hearts go out to the staff. We are extremely grateful for everything they have done for us over the years. We hope to work with them again in brighter days.

Thank You,

The Nerd Nite Austin Bosses


We put on a FREE show every month on the second Wednesday of the month.
