"Nathan and the entire GeekFest team have fully embraced Everett, collaborating seamlessly with our staff and other essential partners to transform our downtown into a haven for geek culture. I can't wait to welcome everyone this summer!"

“It is so different from any other Geek Convention as we have three major events happening all at once," said Nathan Mumm, the event organizer. "We have worked with the city of Everett to bring a Street Fair, Exhibit Hall, and Film Festival, all happening simultaneously."
