THANK YOU!
After catching our breath after a LONG week, we got a lot of thank yous to get to so stay with us for a bit.
We'd like to thank our sponsors & friends who helped make everything happen. The U.S. Air Force Recruiting, United States Space Force, U.S. Marine Corps, U.S. Army, Pizza Hut, The Gamers XP, Landers Dodge Chrysler Jeep RAM, Johnny's Pizza House, Excalibur Comics, Cards & Games, Bear's, Sci-Port Discovery Center, Hurricane Alley LIVE, Fat Tuesday Sandwich Shop & Bakery, Riverport Bar-B-Que, Notini's Italian Restaurant, Scout Comics, Krewe of Barkus & Meoux, Shreveport Mudbugs Hockey, Shreveport Regional Arts Council, JSA Certification, Next Level Grades, Shreveport Limousine, the Bast Alpha Garrison, Hannah Riann Cosplay, Michael Byrnes aka Superman, InSymmetry Creations, LLC, LeVette Fuller City Councilwoman, CyPhaCon, Huntsville Comic & Pop Culture Expo, Dallas Comic Show and Renee's Run. We're probably missing a few businesses and people. I know a lot of people see 'sponsor' and think money...but these guys all provide so much more than that. In a lot of cases, this event would not be possible without their help. Also, a big shout out to all the great vendors who brought all sorts of awesome & unique goodies for us.
We'd like to thank all our guests. Every single one of them were awesome and gave everybody an experience they'll never forget. From Matthew Lillard to Roland Paris, Jeff Daniel Phillips to Brian Steward. Jamie Kennedy to Clint Howard. Skeet Ulrich, Bryan SilverBax, Danhausen: Wrestler, Darby Allin, Cooper Andrews, Dustin Rhodes, John Kassir...Whatever name you want to toss out there. Top to bottom, everybody was an absolute delight. And trust us, that's not always the case.
And last, but certainly not least, THANK YOU to all the fans that attended this weekend. We know the economy is a little screwy right now, so we appreciate every single one of you guys that showed up and showed out this weekend. You guys BROUGHT it with amazing cosplay and an amazing attitudes. As we were roaming the floors, we saw SO MANY people helping each other out and just generally being awesome to each other. Not everything was perfect: The weather didn't always want to cooperate, not everything went according to plan, I'm sure we missed some questions here and there, and not everything was perfect all the time for one reason or another. But with all that said, 99.9% of you were amazing, understanding, and had a willingness to jump in and help someone else out even though you were just there to enjoy the show. We were ALL moved by your kindness, your passion and your ability to be good humans in any circumstance.
You guys each and every year make this show worth all the blood, sweat and tears it takes to make it happen. We cannot thank you enough. Truly, and from the bottom of our hearts, we love each and every one of you.
Thank you. Thank You. THANK YOU.

FAQs

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?

What if I bought a weekend pass and lose my wristband?
