Welcome to Festival and Beyond! Here you’ll find all of the information you need to know about our festival, which is from April 25-26, 2020.

The festival was created to give us a all a place to hang out, watch some panels with some celebrity guests and more. Read down further to find all about the festival.

It’s 100% COMPLETELY FREE. You do not need to pay anything to watch it or participate!

We’re also officially partnering with Random Acts, and we’re asking if you have the means to do so, donate to our campaign to raise funds for COVID-19 relief. All donations go straight to Random Acts – Nerds and Beyond does not touch anything.


How do you watch you may ask? It’s all going to be streamed directly to Youtube on our channel – http://www.youtube.com/nerdsandbeyond!
