Geek’d Con 2019 Frequently Asked Questions
Geek'd Con is Shreveport's biggest comic and pop culture event, and it will return this August for the show's 5th anniversary. The event will once again be at the Shreveport Convention Center in Downtown Shreveport. This year's show will be on August 16th-18th.
We're just a couple weeks away from the 5th anniversary of Geek'd Con in Shreveport, which means the questions are flying around. We figured we'd take some time to answer some of the most common questions. Here we go:
WILL TICKETS BE AVAILABLE AT THE SHOW?
Yes! Tickets will be available at the Box Office all weekend. The Box Office usually opens at least 60 minutes before the show starts each day.
IS THERE A MILITARY DISCOUNT?
Yes, and it will big bigger than before. In the past our Military Discount only worked Friday nights. But now our Military Discount will go all weekend. Here's how it works: Anyone with a valid ACTIVE DUTY or VETERAN Military ID will get $5 off ANY ticket at the Box Office. That includes Daily AND WEEKEND passes. But it only works AT the Box Office, because we can't validate IDs online.
WHEN IS THE SHOW OPEN?
Friday (Vendor’s Night) – 6pm-9pm
Saturday – 10am-7pm
Sunday – 11am-5pm
IS MY KID FREE?
Kids 5-and-under are free all weekend!
WHAT DAYS WILL CELEBRITY GUESTS BE THERE?
Our celebrities are set to appear all day Saturday and Sunday. They will be at their booths all weekend, with the exception of any panels, photo ops, or regular breaks. Sometimes guests may have to leave a little early on Sunday, due to limited flights available out of the Shreveport airport.
