Shreveport's premiere pop culture convention, Geek'd Con, is the fastest growing comic con event in the entire state of Louisiana. Over 10,000 attendees came out to the first year in 2015, and then over 15,000 fans rolled through the Shreveport Convention Center in 2016. So what's next for 2017? That's up to you...

Geek'd Con will return to the Shreveport Convention Center this August, from the 18th-20th, in Downtown Shreveport.

Not only will the 2017 version of Geek'd Con craft vendors, comic book stores, video game outlets, book stores, hobby shops, artists, writers, but the guest list for this year is amazing. Featuring the following celebrities: 

Lou Ferrigno (The Hulk), Joey Fatone (*NSYNC), Billy West (Futurama), Sam J. Jones (Flash Gordon), Kelly Hu (X-Men: X2. Arrow, Vampire Diaries), Kellen Goff & Andy Field (Five Nights At Freddy's), comic artist Roland Paris, and more still to come. 

This year's event will feature the same hours as last year:

Convention Hours
Friday: Vendor Preview Night (Public Event) – 6pm-9pm
Saturday – 10am-7pm
Sunday – 11am-5pm

There will be TWO VIP options for Geek'd Con 2017. Here's the breakdown:

Geek'd Con VIP(ONLY 250 AVAILABLE)
  • Weekend Pass
  • Exclusive Lanyard
  • Separate Entrance
