Tesla is popping up all over. And that’s a good thing. Nikola Tesla was one of the most important inventors to the modern world, and yet also one of the least known. That’s been changing over the last few years, which has been reflected in the wonderful reception of Tesla: The Wizard of Electricity and other books. And now there is TeslaMania!
The brainchild of Tesla Magazine founder Nenad Stankovic, TeslaMania is planned as a four day weekend festival running from July 10th (Tesla’s birthday) to July 13th. Most of the events will take place in picturesque Toronto, with the final day featuring a guided tour to nearby Niagara Falls. The Falls play an important role in Tesla’s contributions to society, so events include visits to the two Telsa memorial statues and the Sir Adam Beck power plant, plus a Tesla Motors Car Rally, an Outdoor Picnic and a lot more Tesla Festivities.
Events in Toronto include a beach festival, parties at selected nightclubs, music by Tesla (the rock band), and the premier of The Healing Field, a new film highlighting Tesla’s inventions in electrotherapy. Also not to be missed are book presentations and signings planned for the Conspiracy Culture book store.
