Whaaat!? Festival 2023

Join us for our 5th annual festival of experimental games and interactions! Taking place Saturday, October 28th, in-person, in the ATLAS Institute, on the CU Boulder campus. With maximum awesomeness.

Enjoy a veritable menagerie of talks, workshops, weird games, alternative interfaces, and more.

This year, a festival pass gets you into:

  • All talks (including our keynote by Everest Pipkin)
  • All industry panels & workshops
  • All arcades (both the main room and the smaller themed arcades)
  • The return of the all-you-can-eat cereal bar

Or if you're feeling fancy, check out the Giant Skeleton Pass, which gets you:

  • 1 hour early & after-hours arcade access
  • 1 each Whaaat!? Festival sticker from the past 5 years
  • 1 custom Whaaat!? cereal bowl, plus your own box of cereal
  • The real chance to win a 12-foot skeleton*
  • The pride of helping other people attend affordably

*if we sell any Giant Skeleton Passes, we will buy a 12 foot skeleton from Home Depot, pose it around the festival, and then raffle it off to one VIP ticket holder.
