How’s it going guys? Your friendly local GFAF has had an extremely busy March! Locking down bands for our explosive lineup such as Hard Money Saints , Death Star and Off Side On to join our already phenomenal lineup including; A Lien Nation, Anu, 5Rings, Bad Chuck, Pill Brigade, Mr. Pickles and so much more!
Our band line-up is coming together, but you know what else we need? YOU!
For the first time ever GFAF is going to be doing a cosplay contest to fill up our human chess board! What does that mean for you? In the coming week we’ll be officially announcing the contest and giving you a chance to WIN your way into the fest-just for looking awesome! Our selected winners will receive free entry and camping to the fest just for showing up in cosplay and being the royal families in our chess boards! (Full duties will be announced next week; just expect to lose a hand in an unfortunate lightsaber battle.)
Starting next week all you have to do to enter is to post a pic in your best fantasy cosplay (this should be easy as sakuracon will be just ending) with a sign that says #GFAF2016 to the GFAF Facebook Page and share it!
And of course, tickets are STILL AT THE EPIC PRESALE PRICE OF $50 FOR THE WHOLE WEEKEND!
GFAF is going to be bigger and better than ever this year and you know what that means? More opportunities for volunteers, vendors, games and general shenanigans!
Want to get in on the action? (It’s March so there’s obviously still time) contact us! Our band lineup may be filling up fast but we are always looking for talented people:

Ashley Lalong will be bringing out her costume head dresses as well. We will be spotlighting our vendors over the coming months so you can get to know them and their goods, and have a wishlist ready for the fest.
