Geek Mob: International Read Comics in Public Day
Next Geek Mob will be held on November 4, 2017 from 1 pm to Midnight at the Salem Civic Center.
Tickets are available at the Salem Civic Center Box Office or through the Salem Civic Center website (additional fees apply online)!
Family-friendly comic book convention atmosphere with a purpose!
We have listened to your feedback! We are completely revamping our event this year to make it even better! We will have a larger focus on games and panels this year with an evening concert! We look forward to making this event more awesome! We have moved the date to a Fall event this year so that kids and parents are able to come and have fun without the added pressure of getting ready to go back to school AND you will get to use your Halloween costumes TWICE! You can either enter our Masquerade or just come dressed up for fun!
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 (8/14/16) was a success! We raised $600 for Blue Ridge Autism & Achievement Center!
We are planning now for next year’s shindig and we hope you will be there!!
