Nerdy Things To Do In Edmonton This Weekend (Feb.17-20)

A lot of variety this weekend for nerds in Edmonton. My favourite highlights include smallCon (a LARP event going on inside the Westmount Theatre) and the season premiere of YEG DND: Improv Edition. Of course there’s also Extra Life Edmonton’s Community Guild Meet Up tonight if you’re interested in finding out more about them.

In other news… The Gamer’s Lodge has its usual “Advanced Difficulty” game night tonight there’s a Hearthstone game night at the makerspace in the library downtown and Gabfest’s roving band of redshirts (The GOBlets) are making their way out to Beyond Board in Sherwood Park.

The Winspear has PIXAR in Concert on both Saturday and Sunday and high school teams will be competing in the yearly Interdisciplinary Science Competition hosted by TeamUp Science at the UofA.

Finally in case you forgot, it’s a long weekend and you can make the drive out to Leduc on Monday for a day of gaming in support of charity at Games Collective.

As always if I’ve missed anything, send me an e-mail at and  I’ll add your event to our calendar.
