First and foremost, Pure Speculation is a sci-fi and fantasy festival, run by geeks for geeks. We aren't a corporate entity taking advantage of geek chic to make a quick buck. We are as passionate about this hobby as you are, and our planning team runs the gamut of geekdom, from literature, film and art, to gaming and computers. So we know what you want to see, because hey: we want to see it too!

Our goal is to bring you the best events, guests, and shows we can, year after year. And that is really the key. We plan to be running this festival for a very long time, and we plan our yearly event with longevity in mind.
