OSFest 2023 Grid Remains Open!

While events at #OSFest2023 have concluded, to give participants and others who missed all of the exhibits time to view everything, the grid remains open until the scheduled shutdown on October 8, 2023.

We thank all of the organizers, promoters, advisors, sponsors, volunteers, merchants, exhibitors, performers, and participants for helping make OSFest happen! Special appreciation goes out to the team who worked so hard to be sure everyone was able to have a great experience. OSFest is a grid-neutral event with a community of people behind the avatars celebrating each other, together.

Events have concluded but the grid will be open until October 8, 2023 as scheduled for viewing exhibits and visiting stores. The Merchant Sales Event has concluded but merchants may individually still have deals, steals, and freebies available! A big thank you to everyone who participated, volunteered, did promo, or sponsored. This is your event! You did it! Congrats!

We remain short of funding for OSFest2023 having raised $714 of the $1143 in server, license, website, and domain costs. No one was paid for their labor or their performances. OSFest is an all volunteer community effort. A detailed breakdown of costs can be found on the call for sponsors page at

If you are interested in next year's OSFest, please chime in on the OSFest Discord server so we can begin planning. Logs will be analyzed to have a look at what went well and what did not go well this year so we can make some data driven decisions for next year.
