    Imgur is undebatably one of the best places on the internet for funny and interesting images. The company has today announced its first ever in-real-life weekend camp, where you can meet other people who spend time on the site.

    Camp Imgur will be held August 7-10 at a campground in Mendocino, CA. The company is touting it as “part meetup, part festival and part conference” where you’ll get the chance to meet other internet people.

    The full lineup hasn’t been announced yet, but the Camp Imgur site promises stand-up comedians, GIF makers, a banana expert, PBS and more.

    The weekend costs $150, which includes camp activities, meals, beverages, parties and speakers.

    If you want to be at what is likely to be one of the best internet events of the year, tickets are on sale now. How often do you get to meet anonymous strangers from an image sharing site, right?
