Avatar Fest, celebration of the Hypergrid community. Nov. 13-16.
Updated 10/16/2015
The citizens of the Hypergrid are preparing an AVATAR fest for the fall.  This is a preliminary announcement, aimed primarily at getting the news out to prospective exhibitors and performers.   The show (music and performances) will run Nov. 13-16.  The exhibits will be available for 2 more weeks.  There will be  blog and video coverage.  
Avatar Fest is a celebration of the hypergrid user community. Those of us who work, build, dream or simply just live here. AvatarFest will start Nov 13th and end Nov 16th, with the region being open to the public for two weeks after that. Join us for four days of exhibits, dancing, networking, and fun. Location: a grid-independent region yet to be determined (watch this space!).
