More bizarre than
you could ever imagine
The death of irony
Everything I've ever dreamed it would be
SEPTEMBER 19rd @ TWITCH.TV/THE3GI
YOU MAY BE ASKING YOURSELF, "WHAT IS SHREKFEST?" I like to believe the title says it all: SHREKFEST. It's a festival celebrating Shrek. If the Shrek part confuses you (don't worry, very common) then just focus on the fest part: live music, beer, food, games & prizes - highlighted by our infamous Onion Eating Contest - and all topped off by an outdoor screening of the 2001 Oscar winning film, Shrek.
BASICALLY, A NICE DAY.
THE HONOR OF THY PRESENCE IS HEREBY REQUESTED FOR
Shrekfest was started by 3GI INDUSTRIES in 2014 and has been held annually on labor day weekend in Madison, WI. It was originally devised as an excuse to party with like-minded spirits, but since then it's grown into something very special.
AND IN 2020, IT'S EXTRA SPECIAL...
SHREKFEST 2020 WILL BE ONLINE
Due to Covid, Shrekfest 2020 will be held virtually via Twitch.
We invite all Shrekheads to contribute to our first ever virtual fest.
