StarFest is the quintessential nerd gathering in Denver. For the past 34 years, its brought stars of all shapes and sizes to the geeky masses and offered up a weekend of science fiction, comics, horror and robots to fans both big and small.
Over the years, it has become a little larger, says StarFest coordinator KathE Walker. We can offer a lot more for everyone now. Thats an understatement: The festival now takes over two hotels and spans a variety of media. While science-fiction fans will have lots to enjoy with appearances from the likes of Morena Baccarin (V, Firefly) and Jonathan Frakes (Star Trek: The Next Generation), there will be plenty of other activities to keep them occupied, as well, including panels, signings, a costume contest, author appearances, movie screenings and more. Now in its fifth year as part of the convention, RoboFest which features loads of life-sized robots from memorable films could well be the highlight.
StarFest kicks off today at 5 p.m. and runs through Sunday at the Marriott DTC and Hilton Garden Inn, 4900 South Syracuse Street; tickets are $15 to $49.
