6 years ago, in the only time zone that matters, Frogpants fans came together in Salt Lake City, UT for the first Nerdtacular. This annual community event, founded by podcaster and artist Scott Johnson, has grown bigger and bigger every year until finally it can now no longer be contained by the limits of a single day!

On July 5 and 6, Nerdtacular 2013 takes the big step to becoming a 2 day event.And even more exciting, the entire event will take place at the Snowbird Summer Resort, just 8 miles from Salt Lake City, in a beautiful mountain canyon. Great room rates for out of town attendees available at the resort and 8 restaurants within walking distance mean that all the fun can happen in one place and we can all get even more time together enjoying this one of a kind community gathering!  

Some serious talent in this shot.

The new venue means even more people will be able to attend this year and I can’t wait to see each and every one of you there.  In addition to Nerdtacular mainstays like Live Film Sack, Battle of the Frogpants Stars, panels featuring fan favorite Frogpants producers, and the Prizeocalypse, our new location and extended time will allow us to offer expanded meet and greet times, crazy gaming into the wee hours and plenty of surprises. You can find all kinds of additional details about Nerdtacular, about Snowbird, about the schedule and so on at http://nerdtacular.com.

Of course, right along with all the awesome, the costs of Nerdtacular continue to grow as well. Nerdtacular has always been about giving a great experience to attendees, maximizing our time together, and geeking out all over the place.  But all that fun costs money and in order to keep ticket prices low and make Nerdtacular as accessible as possible, we are asking all of you to be a big part of making it happen by joining with us through Kickstarter to help this event be better than ever!

Ready for our closeup.

Reward packages are available with or without tickets. This year, for those who can attend, we've designed packages which give cool additional rewards to go along with your tickets. We've also added a number of cool new packages designed to make your time at Nerdtacular even more amazing.  And even if you can't come this year, we appreciate your support and we’ve got some great reward packages to thank you for backing us as well.Thank you for your support the Frogpants community as it continues to grow and flourish!!!

Keep your eye on this page for updates on how things are going, and some of the cool progress on our end.

Risks and challenges

There are very few risks to this project. Like last year, the event went off as planned and we were able to do what we did with your help! We expect the same here.

One of the challenges is doing the same this year, so we can plan for future events in years to come.
