What is GeekCLE?
Geek + CLE(veland) = GeekCLE an organization that promotes geek culture in Cleveland. By teaming up with other local businesses and organizations, we come up with new ways to encourage the geek community in Cleveland. and always interested in meeting people that want to get involved. We think it is important to offer a venue for people to be themselves, share interests, and we are always interested in meeting people who want to get involved. Our site gives readers a way to find geek friendly places and local events in Greater Cleveland.
We love reading, watching and playing. Most importantly we love Cleveland. All of our efforts are to give back to Cleveland a little geek love.
GeekCLE Hosted Events
GeekCLE hosts a variety of events, from Book Club to Nerdlesque (nerdy burlesque!) to Trivia Night. Our events give people a place to hangout and meet like-minded locals in a variety of settings. We strive to keep our events as cheap as possible if not free for the public. We are open to a great variety of event ideas and have too many of our own. If you are a local business that would like to work on creating an event with us, let us eat tacos and discuss!
Volunteering and Charitable Work
GeekCLE has worked with many organizations putting on free-of-cost events by volunteering our time, and available resources. We feel volunteering is a large part of keeping these community oriented events open to as many people as possible. If you are interested in having GeekCLE participate or offer our community resources to your event, please complete our Event Application here. We of course can not be a part of all the events proposed to us, but we make an effort to help where we can. Please note that we are not an organization of monetary means, but a web of volunteers who have great ideas and enthusiasm for the local community not to mention our many fandoms.
Interested in getting involved as a volunteer? If we are in need of volunteers for a larger event we try to get the word out on social media, but you can also contact us.
