Nerdy Things To Do In Edmonton This Weekend (Aug. 4th – 6th)

Looking for something to do this weekend? It’s reasonable quiet compared to next weekend (with Animethon & Fragapalooza both spanning multiple days). That said, we’re having an event for Edmonton Streams on Sunday. If you’re a gamer on Twitch, Youtube or Mixer, come on down & connect with your fellow local broadcasters.

There’s also the Harry Potter celebration on-going at Cally’s Teas, Advanced Board Gaming at The Gamers’ Lodge & League of Legends at the downtown library tonight. Tomorrow there’s live video game music at Winston Churchill Square, a Rubik’s cube competition in West Ed and a nerdy animated double-bill at Metro Cinema.

Finally on Sunday there’s the aforementioned Stream meet-up, a huge Cosplay costume sale, Barnival at Beercaee & a Back to the Future Quote-A-Long at Metro Cinema.

If I’ve missed anything, e-mail me at and I’ll do my best to get the word out!
