NNGF Shareables_Page_1Imagine the editor-in-chief of Popular Science chugging beers on stage with the producers of Radiolab while answering your questions about the universe.  Imagine all the greatest Nerd Nite presenters from across the globe all in one location.  Imagine meeting fellow curious folk like yourself while drinking FREE BEER FOR 3 DAYS.  Imagine no more!

Since we here at Nerd Nite have done such an extraordinarily poor job of sharing content across our 50+ cities worldwide, we’re finally doing something about it.  Yes, we proudly bring you our first annual Nerd Nite Global Festival 2013!  Buy tickets now!

Join us August 16-18, 2013 at the Brooklyn Lyceum (Brooklyn, NY, USA) for our first annual fest featuring 25 of our greatest hits presentations from across the globe, games, trivia, mingling with fellow nerds, lots of free beer and cheap wine (you must be 21+, no exceptions).  Seriously, yes, that is a LOT of content and fun – oh, and all of this amazingness is a mere $100 (day-passes are available too). So be prepared to be dazzled, tantalized, and exhilarated upon hearing from the best presentations ever from the last few years.
