For a quick taste of Beakerhead, head downtown to Stephen Avenue Walk on 8th Ave SW. On Wednesday, Thursday and Friday of Beakerhead, between the hours of 4:00 pm – 6:00 pm, you can pick up a program guide and take in this “Stampede for Geeks.”

For a fuller taste of Beakerhead, head to one of the communities along the Riverwalk by the Bow River and explore a string of free encounters and installations spread out in different neighbourhoods. It’s a sort of string theory!
