On August 28, 2011 – Geek Mob Roanoke was born. We gathered in front of the Downtown Roanoke Main Library. We talked about International Read Comics in Public Day and swapped comic books. We collected comics for kids in the community to help support literacy. It was amazing – we were hooked!
Today, we have grown and we have entertainment, vendors, music and fancy locations (INDOORS!), but we still collect comic books and do something good for the community.
This past year’s Geek Mob (8/23/15) registered a whopping 265 paid admissions, and we raised $300 for Blue Ridge Autism & Achievement Center and $300 for Center in the Square’s Children’s Programming (with a little help from our local Roller Derby teams!).
We are planning now for next year’s shindig and we hope you will be there!!
