About Us

outpost_header_900x178The Sci-Fi Fantasy Outpost is one of the largest and most active social clubs for science fiction and fantasy enthusiasts in the national capital area. We meet several times a month for lunches, movies, concerts, conventions and more.

The group started in 2004 as the Northern Virginia Browncoats. The name was an homage to the group’s love of the short-lived television series Firefly (2002-2003), the feature film Serenity (2005), and all things Joss Whedon.

As the group began to grow, so did interests of its members. To reflect those broader interests, in 2012 the group changed its name to the Sci-Fi Fantasy Outpost. (In our hearts, of course, we will always be Browncoats.)

Our group events are announced via Meetup.com. The site is free to join and provides a platform for any member to suggest a meetup, most of which are announced immediately.

So, come on out, make new friends, and geek out over your favorite genre topic. We would love to meet you!

Can’t Stop the Serenity – Washington, D.C.

In keeping with our Browncoat roots, each summer we hold an annual charity event, Can’t Stop the Serenity – Washington, D.C., to benefit Equality Now and Kids Need to Read (the signature charities of Joss Whedon and Nathan Fillion, respectively), and local charities.

Be sure to check our Can’t Stop the Serenity – Washington, D.C. page for details on our next event!
