Gamerfest Gaming Festival is coming to Limerick March 7-8

GamerFest returns to Limerick City this March 7th & 8th, with 2,000 gamers and YouTuber fans descending on Limerick’s iconic Thomond Park Stadium! This year’s festival promises even more gaming action and live entertainment than last year’s hugely succesful event.

This is a festival for anyone who loves huge games like Fortnite and FIFA 20, YouTubers, Live Stage Entertainment, Virtual Reality, Cosplay and the massively popular Retro Gaming craze! The event welcomes visitors of all ages and skill levels, from casual enthusiasts to the most dedicated gamers! We’re delighted to have been asked to come back and cover the event last year, especially as the scene has grown since last years event and the Insomnia Festival being a success in Dublin.

Fortnite will be a huge part of GamerFest Limerick, including a Fortnite competition taking place on each day of the festival with loads of prizes and giveaways. YouTuber special guests will also be playing Fortnite on the GamerFest Live Stage with some lucky visitors invited on stage to show off their skills!

GamerFest also brings other major esports competition to Limerick including FIFA 20 and Tekken 7 with loads of prizes for the ultimate winners.
