Welcome to the home of Southern Geekfest!
The main goal of Southern Geekfest is to bring pop culture interest to Hattiesburg, MS and to provide a forum to attract an amazingly broad spectrum of exciting and talented individuals who cover the fields of television, movies, graphic art, and writing.

This event brings together actors, artists, writers, radio personalities, cosplayers and many others, to showcase their craft and to interact with fans and dedicated fan groups.

Southern Geekfest is the first of its kind in the Southern MS Pine Belt, and is dedicated to the dream of entertaining all those who come from not just Mississippi, but from all over the country. People from all walks of life are encouraged to come and have fun and be the hero (or heroine) you want to be!
