FYI: All of this info is on the very comprehensive Facebook event page where you can also get updates, like the possibility of a special T-shirt designed for the occasion and info on vendors and food trucks participating in the event. If the T-shirts look anywhere near as rad as the poster for the event, I'm already sold on one:
