Denver area fans are gearing up for one of their favorite conventions of the year: StarFest. In just two short months people will be putting the finishing touches on their cosplay and packing up their gaming gear for the three-day gathering of geekness. The event will be held April 20-22, 2018 at the Marriott DTC Hotel. Thanks to the love and dedication of the Walker Family, this super-fun shindig is always a chance for friends to catch up and families to soak up all that StarFest has to offer.
The guest list is looking good including “Star Trek: Discovery’s Mary Chieffo, “Star Trek’s Jonathan Frakes, “The Orville’s Scott Grimes, “Farscape’s Gigi Edgley, and writer and producer Andre Bormanis.
StarFest is actually a fun collection of festivals. It is part of what makes this convention unique. There is ComicFest, HorrorFest, KlingonFest, WhoFest, ArtFest, ModelFest, GameFest, RoboFest, and ScienceFest. Learn more about the “fests” to see what is in store.
Friday night will be a meet and greet and a Texas Hold ’em tournament. Saturday night, as always, will be the annual Federation Ball the attendees look forward to all year. The Meet and Greet gives people the chance to get up close and personal with the celebrity guests. In a relaxed atmosphere, the guests hang out with you while desserts, coffee, and non-alcoholic beverages are served. The Texas Hold ’em is put on by the USS Pioneer. It is a free, no-limit Texas Hold ’em that starts at 9:00 pm. This benefits the Dumb Friends League and American Diabetes Association. Saturday night lights up the weekend when the USS Pioneer and O.m.e.g.a. host the biggest bash of the year. The DJ keeps things happening while nerds get their dance on. All proceeds will benefit the American Diabetes Association, Dumb Friend’s League Furry Scurry, and OMEGAResponders. As always the dance starts at 9:00 pm and is either the ideal way to close out the evening or chill out with friends until all hours.
