Geek’d Con Military Night and 4 Other Things to Remember
It’s finally here, Geek’d Con 2017 is on our doorstep. This weekend the Shreveport Convention Center will be action packed, with cosplay, vendors, panels, celebrity photo ops, contests, autographs, comic books, video games, and a ton more!
The hours of the show are Friday 6p-9p, Saturday 10a-7p, and Sunday 11a-5p, with VIP doors opening early on Saturday and Sunday.
Friday night is shaping up BIG. Traditionally, Friday at Geek’d has been Vendor Night, where everyone can stop by to get their weekend wristbands, see the floor, and get first shot at all of the vendor merch before the big crowds on Saturday. Designed mainly to give you first shot at that hot comic book or must-have toy. The celebrity guests aren’t contracted for Friday, so they’re not guaranteed to attend Friday night.
In addition to Vendor Night, Friday has traditionally been our Military Night, where anyone with a valid Military ID can get in FREE. This year, we’ve added a free kids option, so kids 13-and-under can get in FREE on Friday night too. The idea is that, for example, a family who has one parent from Barksdale, and two young children and a spouse, would be able to attend for almost nothing on Friday!
But this year is getting bigger…because as some of our celebrity guests have heard about our Military Night, they’ve decided they want to be a part of it. So this year, there will be a few celebrities stopping out, including Lou Ferrigno!
Here are some other items to remember for this year’s Geek’d Con:
PARKING IS FREE ALL WEEKEND!
Vanessa Angel from Kingpin and Weird Science, and Erik Stolhanske from Super Troopers (Officer Rabbit) will now be joining the show
There are over 100 vendor spaces on the floor
