Geek'd Con, Shreveport's biggest comic and pop culture convention, is back for 2018. August 17-19 at the Shreveport Convention Center in Downtown Shreveport.

For the last few years, Geek'd Con has been Shreveport's version of a "comic con", bringing in guests like Elvira Mistress of the Dark (Cassandra Peterson), Lou Ferrigno, Chewbacca (Peter Mayhew), Tara Reid, comic book legend George Perez, Joey Fatone, Billy West, and a ton of other huge geek celebrities.

We already know that this year's Geek'd Con will feature the original TV Flash, John Wesley Shipp and from Cartoon Network's Adult Swim, voice actor Dana Snyder.

There will be many more guests announced before August gets here. There will also be tons of vendors, artists, authors, and crafters all joining the celebration. But maybe the most important part, is you.

So this year, Geek'd Con has announced that Weekend Tickets will be staying at $25 each! Which is an incredible offer when you look at the landscape of "comic con" style events. Shows in Dallas can have weekend tickets over $100, and other shows in our region may offer Weekend Passes for $35-$50, but only deliver a fraction of the guests, and fun.

So make sure to set a reminder, Geek'd Con tickets on sale this coming Friday (2/16), so you can score yours right away!
