All GeekFest Events

Magic the Gathering

With an artist’s alley of over a dozen Magic artists, GeekFest's Magic the Gathering space will be hosting events all weekend. Enjoy a beer garden run by Vulpine Taproom right outside, then head indoors into a post-apocalyptic themed space to play Magic and collect artists’ signatures!

We will also be hosting spellslinging learn-to-play all day and commander fire-on-demand, as space allows. Commander is available as both free-to-play and paid competitive with the chance for prize tickets.

Competitive events pay out in prize tickets which can be spent on at our prize wall for draft, play, and collector boosters, and more!

GeekFest Magic Artists

Geeks are taking over downtown Everett! Specifically, they’re flocking to Angel of the Winds Arena in downtown Everett July 19-21 for Geekfest West, a celebration of all things geeky.

Imagined as a street festival for the pop-culturally inclined, Geekfest will spread itself across the downtown area of Everett, from the Historic Everett Theatre to Hewitt Avenue to Angel of the Winds Arena to nearby hotels and club spots. Where else in Everett can you catch a burlesque show after visiting a comedy improv, all while grabbing some great food and drinks from a ton of food trucks?

Geekfest will feature an exhibitor’s hall and street fair with over 120 vendors, a food festival, live geek music, a wrestling ring on Hewitt, comedy shows featuring over 20 top acts from New York, California, and even our own back door headlined by Shayne Smith, plus a film festival with over 150 international short film submissions.
