GeekFest 2016

The Dark Carnival will be hosting their annual Geek Festival from the 7 - 8 May 2016. This highly anticipated event invites all self-proclaimed geeks and enthusiasts to enjoy two full days of comic book perusing, partaking in various competitions and quizzes, and for attendees who are fans of 'The Living Dead' and all things zombie-related, the return of their annual zombie run.

For those who aren't in the know, Dark Carnival is a retail corporation who are committed to granting their customers access to the latest comic books of all genres, graphic novels, collectables and all other related memorabilia that are brought to South Africa from all over the world.

There will be a VIP area for attendees to relax, recuperate and watch over the abuzz before they head back to join in on the festivities. If you've got animals who are also comic-mad, bring them along where they can join in on an array of activity, including the pet parade.

If you're looking to test out your knowledge, take part in a geek quiz. Alternatively, if you're looking to trade up old comic books and collectables, make your way to the second-hand station where you can swap up with like-minded individuals.

Dress up in your favourite character getups and stand the chance to win big with the Cosplay competition. If mechanics are more up your alleyway, take part in the Robo- wars series!

Come along for a day of fantasy, fun and games!
