It’s just under two weeks until the Pure Speculation Festival kicks off for 2018! Our event schedule is up along with all the panel and demo descriptions. Our Vendor Hall is full again, and we have a wonderful array of new and returning merchants and artists for you to check out. The festival recently chose YESS as our new charity partner, and we have some amazingly fun and easy ways for you to donate to them. There’s an open gaming area, the back garden area is open to just relax and watch some demonstrations, and we have the Edmonton Reptile & Amphibian Society joining us this year with their interactive display. And it all wraps up with the return of the Internerd BBQ Saturday night. There’s going to be so much for you to see and do this year, so much wonderful stuff on display from our community, I’m honestly excited to show it all off!
So this is where I ask all of you for a little help. If you’re reading this, you probably spend at least a little time on social media. I would love to see as many folks posting about the festival on social media over the next few weeks as possible! If you’re on Twitter, tweet about something you’re excited to see at the festival and use the hashtag #PureSpec2018 so we can see it and share it. If you use Facebook, consider sharing the Event so your fellow nerds hear about it. In these final few weeks we not only want to make sure we spread the word about the festival, but keep it firmly in people’s eye so they don’t forget about it in all the noise online.
And we’ll be doing our part, tweeting and posting from now until the doors open (and all weekend long as well). So if you see any of those posts, please share them and help us spread the word!
In short, while we here at the festival can shout loud, all of you together can shout much louder! So lend us your voices like thunder, and let’s make sure everyone knows about the Pure Speculation Festival!
