GalaxyFest is right around the corner. Is that cosplay in ready? How about those tickets and hotel reservations? It is time to get ready for this next year’s fun with one of the best sci-fi cons in the Rocky Mountain area. Embrace that inner geek and hang out at the beautiful Antlers Hotel in downtown Colorado Springs, Feb. 24-26, 2017. This year’s theme is Female Superheroes, and there will be a very cool exhibit sponsored by the Space Foundation.
Galaxyfest is similar to a comic con along with some very interesting twists. Besides seeing comics you will feel like you traveled into a fantasy world of pop culture won’t ever stop as it goes around the clock from beginning to end. Every February celebrities, vendors, actors, artists, authors from Colorado Springs to all around the globe come to represent genres such as comics, steampunk, sci-fi, anime and more. Simply put GalaxyFest is a 3-day celebration of the eclectic arts and pop culture which brings the community together.

The schedule already has geeky fun listed such as a VIP meet and greet, adult and kids costume contests, and lots more. There will also be some amazing After Dark “adult only” programming.
The daytime hours are all family friendly. Heads up to families: Sundays kids under 12 are FREE with a paid adult admission. Adults (18+) will discover Friday and Saturday nights to be very enticing with the stellar After Dark activities. Ticket prices are nicely set as the weekend general admission is only $55.00, live it up with the VIP badge at $145, or come for Saturday only priced at $35, and Sunday only is $25.
