The best web, tech and startup events in Chicago


March 4 from 3pm to 9pm

METAFESTO is a 1-day experience designed to introduce and educate local high school & college gamer enthusiasts to the world of Esports and to help support opportunities for students with autism thru the HollyRod Foundation. There will be a NBA2K tournament with celebs & students from local High School & Colleges, a mini boot camp for students to learn about the world of Esports and its opportunities, cosplay and a Silent Disco Party to end the festivities. As the Chicago Esports community knows, Chicago was the first city in the US to award college scholarships to Esports players. METAFESTO aims to build on this history by bringing awareness to help build the Chicago Esports community, share their Esports stories with other communities around the world via social media, and support all the great work the HollyRod Foundation does.
