A Couple of Geeky Events near Seattle

For those of us with a geeky side, finding an event that fits our needs can be a pain in the butt sometimes. Luckily, the Seattle area caters to people of all needs. Here are two coming up during May that might strike your fancy.

Spring Fairy Festival - Tacoma - May 30th

This small, fairy-centric festival is a gathering of local artists, craftsmen and performers, all there to enjoy the day with one big party. See everything from live music to knife juggling to belly dancing and more. And if you really want to get into the spirit, dress up in your best fairy outfit and join the costumed fun.

Viking Fest - Poulsbo - May 15th, 16th & 17th

If fairies aren’t your thing, why not check out this Viking event instead? Be swept into the past with traditional music, dancing, food and other performances. And if you want a souvenir to take home with you, there will be a host of master craftsmen there selling Viking-inspired arts and crafts.
