The 6th annual GeekFest, which is hosted by The Dark Carnival, is taking place in Johannesburg at Montecasino. This year's theme is "Enchanted Kingdom". Highlights of the weekend event will include a robo wars tournament, LARP (Live Action Roleplaying) demos, a medieval fight club, cosplay competitions (sponsored by the film Deadpool 2), and a geek themed market with over 100 stalls. There will also be a tabletop games showcase, as well as a food court, and, presumably, somewhere within all of this there will be a few comics to be found.
