StarFest Hits Denver This April 16-18th
If you are in Denver, Colorado this weekend, this will is the place to be.
Comic Book, Sci-Fi and Horror conventions are on the rise. There are several in different U.S cities almost every weekend. In Denver, Colorado you can get all three at the same place.
From their website:
“StarFest is an annual Denver convention encompassing all aspects of popular media, film and television. Started in 1977, it attracts several thousand fans of popular culture for a weekend of social interaction, games and fun. There are over a hundred activities on the multi-track programming schedule. Events include film studio presentations, onstage Q&A sessions with actors - producers & directors, autograph and photo sessions, costume and talent contests, film festivals, model and art shows, collectible merchandise, educational seminars, discussion panels, kids events, fan club presentations, and assorted Klingons, Jedi and other strange and unusual creatures.“
The convention has become so popular that two smaller conventions have been spawned from it and run at the same time: ComicFest and HorrorFest. ComicFest has become so large, it took over a second hotel. Some of this year’s guests include:
- Summer Glau (Serenity/Firefly, Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles)
- Christopher Judge (Stargate SG-1)
- Marina Sirtis (Star Trek: Next Generation)
- Whilce Portacio (Co-Founder of Image Comics, Uncanny X-Men illustrator)
These are just a few of the guests. Along with cool activities and much cosplay, Starfest will also be having an Iron Man 2 Balcony Challenge and Warner Brothers will be having a studio presentation. Click the link for the full list of guests and activities.
