The City of Tempe invites businesses, organizations and schools with a STEAM focus to participate in the 9th annual Geeks Night Out, presented by StateFarm. This year’s event will be held from 4:30 – 7:30 p.m. on Wednesday, March 18 at the Tempe Community Complex, 3500 S. Rural Road. It is free to become an exhibitor.

Geeks Night Out is Tempe's tribute to everyone who loves science, technology, engineering, art and mathematics (STEAM.) The Arizona SciTech Festival signature event allows everyone to discover the science in everyday things. 

Participation in the 2019 Geeks Night Out was at an all-time high, with representation from over 70 elementary, middle and high schools, as well as college and university students, community partners and businesses.  An estimated 3,000 people discovered the science, providing a tremendous opportunity for your organization to share its important STEAM message.

Exhibitors are required to have an interactive booth designed to engage the community through demonstrations and/or experiments. Businesses that would like to sell merchandise will need a Tempe special event sales tax license. There is no sales tax requirement for sampling or displaying.  To reserve your booth space, contact Denise Rentschler by Feb. 26 at

Check out the Geeks Night Out video and get the registration form on the Geeks Night Out webpage.
