Geek'd Con, Shreveport's comic con, has become one of the biggest pop culture events in the region over the last five years. With guests like Michael Rooker, LeVar Burton, Lou Ferrigno, Elvira, Peter Mayhew, Chris Sarandon, and more.

This year's Geek'd Con is set for August 21-23 at the Shreveport Convention Center.

We are so excited to dive into the Wizarding World of guests with the latest Geek'd Con guest announcement, Jim Tavare!
