Save the Date! Picnic at the End of the Universe


September 29, 2018 from 11 am until 7 pm, Celestial Attic will be hosting its first ever Picnic at the End of the Universe. This event will be a giant, geeky, potluck / picnic celebrating all the geeky arts. Best of all, it is all FREE!

There will be giveaways, prizes, music, games and demos to enjoy. There will be a costume contest as well. Cosplayers, bring your best!

We will also host a Really, Really Free Market that day. It is a sort of swap meet where you leave the geeky stuff you don’t want, and take what you like. You can either take the remains back home at the end of the day or let us donate them to charity. This is a great way to let your books, stickers, buttons, DVDs, T-shirts, games, toys and tapes find a new home.

Bring a dish, drink or dessert to share. Bring a game to play. Meet people. Enjoy the day.

We could use sponsors to buy burgers, dogs, buns, condiments, plates, cutlery and cups. If you are interested in getting your shop or product in front of Cleveland’s geekiest people, then this is an opportunity you will not want to miss. Email:
