Event Details

CPCC has a rich history of innovative programs and community involvement. Around this time last year we hosted our first annual “The Geek Festival” event at CPCC. Now is the time for ax exciting repeat performance! We invite you “geek” and be “chic” with us on 10/19 at CPCC’s Levine campus in Matthews.
 
The Geek Fest is an exciting and eclectic annual celebration of the “geek” in all of us; an event designed to educate the hearts and minds of our students and community by highlighting and celebrating the creative and exciting innovations of new technology, media, and industry. Remember, geek is chic. It is no longer only limited to IT and the technical aspects of life.
 
The theme of The Geek Fest is innovation in our college and community. In addition to showcasing many of CPCC’s educational programs, technologies, and resources, The Geek Festival will feature many local and regional businesses and their contributions to new technologies and the hottest trends. The Geek Fest will highlight cutting-edge industry, gadgets, hardware, software, services and more.
 
Activities will include vendor demonstrations, guest speakers, webcasts, video game tournaments, music, contests, FREE STUFF and more! We have been graciously provided with many promotional items and giveaways including an Apple iPod, Macromedia software, shirts, hardware, video games, goodies and more!
