Save the Date! Picnic at the End of the Universe

9181f6b35b571347a6e748f56cf35412-rimg-w720-h405-gmir

September 29, 2018 from 11 am until 7 pm, Celestial Attic will be hosting its first ever Picnic at the End of the Universe. This event will be a giant, geeky, potluck / picnic celebrating all the geeky arts. Best of all, it is all FREE!

There will be giveaways, prizes, music, games and demos to enjoy. There will be a costume contest as well. Cosplayers, bring your best!

We will also host a Really, Really Free Market that day. It is a sort of swap meet where you leave the geeky stuff you don’t want, and take what you like. You can either take the remains back home at the end of the day or let us donate them to charity. This is a great way to let your books, stickers, buttons, DVDs, T-shirts, games, toys and tapes find a new home.

Bring a dish, drink or dessert to share. Bring a game to play. Meet people. Enjoy the day.

We could use sponsors to buy burgers, dogs, buns, condiments, plates, cutlery and cups. If you are interested in getting your shop or product in front of Cleveland’s geekiest people, then this is an opportunity you will not want to miss. Email: cleveland@celestialattic.com.

Ok, this week we have two Celestial Picks. I couldn’t pick my favorite, a campout at Squires Castle. It is fully booked. You should have jumped when we first told you about it! So runner-up events include the June Cleveland Craft Coalition Market at Fear’s Confections and the Akron-Canton Comic Con at Chapparells Bingo in Akron , Ohio.

Fear_logo_resizedFirst up, it is the Craft Coalition Market which converts Fear’s Confections, both inside and out, into a showplace of locally crafted items. The event runs Saturday June 23 from 12 pm until 5 pm at Fear’s Confections, 15208 Madison Ave., Lakewood, Ohio 44107. This event is listed as weather permitting, so keep an eye to the sky and show up ready to enjoy a sweet treat or something crafty. These crafts have a high geek quotient and are worth a look.

Second, we have the Akron-Canton Comic Con happening Sunday, June 24 from 10 am until 4 pm at Chapparells Bingo located at 2418 S Arlington Rd., Akron Ohio 44319. Guest creators include Robert Kraus, Adam Fields, Jay Kalagayan, Tim Fuller, Marcus Calvert, Frank James Bailey and more. The event boasts hourly prizes, a costume contest, and free parking.
