BaconCamp - September 4, 2010

Bacon. It's delicious. And we'd all eat a pile of it if no one was watching. It deserves to be celebrated.

Wild Goose Creative is the official Columbus presenter for the national event BaconCamp! It is an ad-hoc gathering born from the desire for people to share and learn in an open environment about bacon. It is an intense event with discussions, demos and interaction from participants who are the main actors of the event. It i...s community driven and everyone is encouraged to participate by presenting (food, art, demo), judging, or volunteering.

BaconCamp is not a spectator sport.

There are a limited number of tickets available, so buy them early! We do expect to sell out and we want to be able to celebrate bacon with you!

We will be holding a Bacon Cooking contest and a Bacon Art/Craft contest. We will have prizes available from amazing Columbus vendors and restaurants, and illustrious judges from local businesses. BaconCamp is proud to be held at North Market this year!

When: Saturday, September 4th, 2-5 PM (International Bacon Day!)

Where: North Market, 59 Spruce Street, Columbus, OH 43215

Throughout Geekfest we will be featuring Hey Kids! : A History of Comic Book Advertising,” a exhibition curated by local artist Michael Neno. The exhibit will feature over 60 ads from the 1930s to the present. In addition to classic ads for Charles Atlas, with their sand-kicking bullies, X-Ray Specs and 'Sea Monkeys,' the exhibit will feature a diverse array of obscure, bizarre, charming and unintentionally funny appeals--from the earliest ads for video games to the anti-drug ads of today's comic books.

Gaming enthusiast and actor Karl Boettcher sees a natural link between roleplaying and the stage, and he leads a group of gaming actors in a roleplaying demonstration/performance for you. This event is designed to share with an audience of experienced gamers and the inexperienced alike the awesomeness of communal improvisational storytelling. Come learn about roleplaying, and experience a cool story!The setting is Edinburgh, just before WWII. A steam train puffs in the distance, on a gleaming steel bridge across the Firth of Tay. Danger and intrigue await those who ride upon it! Will our heroes ride into glory or will our foes manage a great destruction?

Nerdcore: what happens when you mix hip-hop and computer-obsessed geeks. Nerdcore Rising follows MC Frontalot, the "godfather of nerdcore," on his first national tour to reveal to roots of the genre, the dorky complexities of its artists, and one MC's fight for nerd stardom. The film features Weird Al Yankovic, Jello Biafra, Tycho and Gabe, Brian Posehn, MC Frontalot, MC Kris, MC Lars, and a slew of other nerdcore artists and commentators. Come for your opportunity to see this film in Columbus!
