Step into story and get your geek on at Jefferson County Public Library (JCPL) this fall. The Library hosts Fandomonium, a celebration of all things geek, nerd and fan, from Oct. 1 – Nov. 3.
On Nov. 3 from 4 - 8 p.m. at the Jefferson County Fairgrounds (15200 W. 6th Ave. Frontage Rd., Golden, CO 80401), discover a multiverse of fun where headcanons come to life during the Fandomonium signature event.
This family-friendly event features fun for all ages. Attendees are encouraged (though not required) to come as their favorite story with cosplay and costumes. During the event, fans compete in costume contests to win $100 Target gift cards; automatically enter to win door prizes (courtesy of Midwest Tapes); and show off fandom knowledge through trivia and a cross-fandom murder mystery puzzle.
The event offers even more opportunities for fun, exploration and networking, including interactive stations like silent disco, fortune telling, potion making, classic arcade games, photo opportunities with popular characters and even a designated Kids Zone, where little ones can craft their own elf ears and superhero cuffs. Connect with fellow fans through the event mobile app (download-details available prior to event) and through scheduled fan community meet-ups.
Train for the main event with related Library programming. Learn about the animals of the wizarding world; attend special superhero Story Times; explore costume creation and special effects makeup; and hang out with like-minded fans for special movie nights and activities. Interested individuals can also celebrate fandom throughout the month of October when they visit any JCPL location to snap a picture with a favorite life-sized character cut out, including Harry Potter, Thor, Superman and more.
All Fandomonium events are free and open to the public. Food and drink available for purchase during the Nov. 3 event.
