The Geekiary is pleased to announce our 2018 multi fandom pre-SDCC social event, Fandom Fete. The event will be hosted by The Geekiary, Saga Event Planning, The Collective Blog, and Friends of Comic Con. It is scheduled for Wednesday July 18th at 9:30 pm in the Gaslamp District. More details about the venue will be announced after it has been secured.
Fandom Fete will feature a semi-open bar, free swag, entertainment, and cosplay related activities. VIP perks include early admission (including access to the semi-open bar) and additional swag. General admission tickets will be available for purchase at a later date sometime in 2018.
The Geekiary has launched an IndieGoGo campaign to cover the initial costs of the event and secure the venue. Campaign perks include SDCC Exclusive merchandise, celebrity autographs, eBook bundles, and special advanced admission VIP passes. We are also offering exclusive opportunities for other groups including a partnership perk for small companies and blogs, and a sponsorship perk with top billing and a VIP group admission. Additional perks will be added as the campaign goes forward.
The campaign will run for 60 days. It is a fixed funding campaign. If the initial cost of the event isn’t met, no contributors will be charged and Fandom Fete will be rescheduled.

The Friends of Comic Con Forum started with a group of fans who congregated daily on the CCI Facebook page to meet, chat, ask & answer questions, and have fun. As part of answering questions, the group utilized the Discussion Page feature of Facebook to answer repeat questions that were asked on the wall. But then one day, Facebook discontinued the Discussion Page feature. Not wishing this type of information to be lost, one brave woman created the Friends of Comic Con forum and the rest is history.
Once upon a time, the Collective team failed to obtain passes to Comic Con International. We gnashed our teeth and tore our clothes, angered and confused. Out of the ashes of bitter disappointment rose a phoenix of an idea: unleash our nerdy prowess upon the blog-o-sphere so that someday (with any luck) we would be able to register for a press Comic Con International badge and live our dream to mingle with the nerdiest of fandoms, those entities of singular passions and questionable fashion sense. In 2015, our nerdy life goal came to fruition and we strutted our stuff with the mightiest of fandoms in San Diego, and now that we’ve made it, we’re determined to carry on with our professional fangirling.
