UW-Eau Claire will hold its second annual GEEKcon from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday at the university's Davies Center, 77 Roosevelt Ave. 

The event combines community members' and local businesses' passions, talents or hobbies ranging from Legos to essential oils, music to video games, comic books and knitting.

Various vendors with interactive displays will be on hand for attendees to learn about. Last year the event saw 600 attendees and 50 participating vendors as well as more than 15 panelists that hosted discussion sessions. 

Volunteers and vendors are encouraged to email geekcon@uwec.edu for information on how to participate in the event.

Admission to GEEKcon is $5 or two nonperishable food items. It is free to UW-Eau Claire faculty, staff and students with valid IDs.
