Dam Good Improv Festival 2018

In Partnership With



Nerd Louisville is a registered 501(c)3 charitable non-profit.

Why Nerd Louisville?

We established Nerd Louisville when we discovered that there was a vibrant and active community of people interested in all types of nerdy activities in Louisville, but that many of those people were scattered around the city in disparate groups. We wanted to change that, so we created Nerd Louisville to make it easier for nerds to connect and become friends.
Nerd Louisville’s goal isn’t to supersede or absorb the already existing nerd groups in Louisville, but to create a platform that enables groups to connect with each other and grow organically.
Since our inception, Nerd Louisville has fostered a strong and interconnected community, established a mini-convention (Nerdlouvia), and developed a charitable initiative (Next-gen Nerds) to support at-risk youth.
