The new ReWired Fest is combining a fully immersive esports and digital experience with a two-day festival celebration in Fayetteville, Arkansas this fall! Fun is the name of the game for this action-packed weekend of gaming, panels, celebrity events, and music from October 21-22, 2022 on the University of Arkansas campus. 

ReWired Fest’s tech and gaming experience is designed to inspire and encourage young minds and people of all abilities - especially BIPOC and women-aligned people - to pursue careers in science, technology, engineering, arts and math (STEAM). For two festival days, attendees will experience live esports tournaments, gaming lounges, retro gameplay, industry panels, groundbreaking tech immersion, food expo, music, action sports, STEAM education, and more!

The gaming experience began with esports qualifier tournaments on the ReWired digital platform in August, and will conclude at the ReWired Fest in October with an in-person championship finale! The final tournaments are offering prizes worth a combined total of $60,000 in prizes, unbeatable in the industry. Whether you’re coming to see the action for yourself or want to show off your skills, there will be a little something for everyone to enjoy. 

Top content creators and influencers will be in attendence at ReWired Fest, including Youtube star Emma Chamberlain, WWE Superstar Big E, and rapper Guapdad4000.
