Geek'd Con is Shreveport's biggest comic and pop culture event, and it will return August 19-21 2022. The event will once again be at the Shreveport Convention Center in Downtown Shreveport.
We always get a bunch of questions about the event...so we figured we'd take some time to answer some of the most common questions. Here we go:
What can/can't I bring to the event?
No outside food or beverage allowed inside. Personal cameras and backpacks are allowed. No projectile/sharp/dangerous cosplay accessories allowed. All cosplay must follow the Geek'd Con and Convention Center Cosplay Rules. Those rules can be found at GeekdCon.com
Are tickets available at the Box Office?
Yes. The Box Office at the Convention Center will be open about 60 minutes before doors open each day, and will be open during the event.
Will I Be Able to Use a Credit Card on Site?
Yes and no. Some vendors & guests accept credit cards. Some don't. It is up to each vendor or guest. There are ATMs on site. However, we recommend bringing at least some cash that way you are never caught unprepared and so you don't have to spend the entire weekend waiting in line at the ATM. To help you decide how much cash to have on hand, we put out an autograph/photo price list at least a month ahead of time so you can plan accordingly.
What is Vendor's Night on Friday?
Friday night is a shorter night for our show, and we focus on our fantastic vendors. We regularly have over 200 vendor booths set up inside the event. This night gives you the first shot at shopping from this wide-range of vendors. If there's a specific comic book, trading card, or action figure you've been searching for, you can be the first to check out the vendor inventory before the big Saturday and Sunday crowds come in.
Can I Expect Long Lines for Guests?
The possibility of long lines do exist. We try to move them along quickly, but we also want everyone to have a unique and enjoyable experience. So, we recommend arriving early to the event for maximum enjoyment. We'd hate for you to show up late in the day and not be able to see all the things you want to see.
When will the celebrities be there?
Our celebrity guests are contracted for Saturday and Sunday of the event. However, sometimes you'll see a guest or two hanging out on Friday night, but its not guaranteed.
Do celebrities charge for autographs and pictures?
Yes. Each guest will have a price for autographs and photos. The guests set these prices themselves, and keep 100% of that money. Geek'd Con doesn't receive any of that money, or get a say in the prices.
Do I need to bring something for a celebrity to sign?
You can bring something if you'd like, but each guest will have 8x10 photos available when you purchase an autograph.
What If the Guest I Want to See Cancels?
Unfortunately, guest cancelations happen. Guests could cancel their appearance at our event either due to work, health or family emergencies. If this occurs, it is beyond our control. We will do our best to book another celebrity to replace if this occurs, but is not guaranteed. No refunds will be given if a guest cancels due to circumstances beyond our control. All ticket sales are final
Is my ticket transferrable?
Digital tickets are non-transferrable. Physical tickets are allowed to be transferred, gifted, or resold. If you buy your tickets online, and want to give them to someone else, you can simply print a physical copy of the tickets.
Do you allow Cosplay?
YES! We highly encourage it! You can find our cosplay rules at GeekdCon.com
What is the refund policy?
Unless the event is canceled, refunds are not available.
Are there ID requirements or an age limit to enter the event?
No there is no ID requirements. No age limit. All ages welcome.
What if I bought a weekend pass and lose my wristband?
Oh no! Try not to lose your weekend wristband, if you do please keep your receipt and we will be more than happy to replace your wristband at no additional cost. If you cannot prove your weekend purchase you will have to buy a new weekend pass.
What are my transport/parking options getting to the event?
Parking is FREE all weekend long in the Convention Center Parking Garage, and auxiliary lots. Check your hotel for shuttle availability.
Where can I contact the organizer with any questions?
