Stay informed about what Nerd Louisville has been up to!


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

Why Nerd Louisville?

Nerd Louisville was established after we discovered there was a vibrant and active community of people in Louisville interested in all types of nerdy activities, but that many of those people were scattered around the city in disparate and sometimes competing 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, we have fostered a strong and interconnected community, established an annual tabletop gaming convention (Nerdlouvia), and developed a charitable initiative (Next-gen Nerds) to support at-risk youth.

Our Mission

Nerd Louisville’s mission is to make Louisville, Kentucky the most awesome nerd city in the universe. We do that by:

  • Fostering a sense of community
  • Providing a hub to connect local nerds
  • Promoting Louisville as a nerd destination
  • Educating, inspiring, and empowering local youth.


We need your help to make Louisville the most awesome nerd city in the universe.

Next-Gen Nerds

We need people to work with our Next-Gen Nerds; educators, mentors, and entertainers.


We need people to help forge relationships with old and new sponsors.


We need volunteers for events; help setup, run games, staff booths, etc.


We need volunteers to spread the word, manage our website and social media, and foster a broader audience.

Our entire organization is volunteer run. But, we can’t do it alone. If you think you can contribute, don’t hesitate.

We want you to sign up for volunteer opportunities.


Many THANKS to our Partners for letting us utilize their space!
