A fun family event is coming up Sunday, February 5, 2023, in Vassalboro. The Olde Mill is the perfect place for what many call the “Nerd Super Bowl.”

When heading to the big mill the Fest offers a variety of activities, games, shopping and cosplay. Please dress up if you dare, many do! You’ll see sword fights, D&D, woodworks, art, wands, pottery, comics, tarot cards and readings, gaming stations such as Pokémon and magic the gathering. There will be fantasy books, Star Wars, Marvel heroes, crafts, toys, gemstones, Viking mugs, homemade treats, weapons for sale, yoga, trivia contests, unique clothing, costume contests, and so many other things. The vendors (all 50) this year, are really preparing to offer all the ultimate shopping experience too.

The event opens up Sunday, February 5, at 10:00am and continues until 5 p.m. Tickets are only $5. There will be a full food concession stand at the fest as well.
