Pure Spec 2019 is Nigh!

Pure Speculation is nigh! This Friday marks the Festival’s fifteenth year celebrating nerdery in Edmonton, and we’re excited to see everyone!

The panel and demo schedule is up now, and while there are always last minute adjustments it should remain pretty solid. There are some excellent panels you won’t want to miss. Our Guests of Honour are bringing you some truly exciting discussions and presentations. And all the panels surrounding the GoH presentations are strong, presented by local nerd experts.

And for the first time in a while, we have tabletop role-playing back at the Festival. You can sit in and play with our GoH Mike Perschon, or check out a game by local RPG designers Mikey Hamm and Cat Mcdonald. If you’d like to play in any of them we recommend emailing us to book your seat (pure.speculation@gmail.com), but you can certainly show up and take your chances. There will also be board games for you to grab and play if you just need to pass time between panels.

As well, Peter Daly from the Edmonton Reptile & Amphibian Society will join us to display some delightful creatures. This is their second year at the Festival, and we love having them and their animals out for folks to see and learn about. As we mention elsewhere, because they are displaying their animals we can’t allow outside animals into the Festival, excepting service animals.

A special treat for us and you: we overlap Dine the Ave this year! The 118th Avenue area has some great restaurants, and Dine the Ave gives you some great deals at those places. So if you love nerdery and food, this is your chance to visit with us and then drop in at your favourite (or brand new) eatery to enjoy some of Edmonton’s best food.

Everything is shaping up to be a great Festival this year! I hope we’ll see you out, and if you have any questions in the meantime, you can catch us at pure.speculation@gmail.com.

See you Friday!
