Outside of the Edmonton Expo in September, this is easily the busiest Nerdy Weekend of the year. It’s not often that a three day Pinball & Arcade Expo can almost get lost in the shuffle. That’s almost what happens when there’s Free Comic Book Day, Star Wars Day, an RPG Convention (IntrigueCon), YEGPin, a Twitch Meetup, a Podcasting Summit, NorthwestFest Film Festival and a whole lot more on the same weekend!
(Quick note that I’ll be updating this as Free Comic Book Day events are updated)
