Outside of the Star Wars world, the con contains multiple cons-within-a-con, such as the DoctorWhoFest, HorrorFest and ComicFest, to name a few, and non-Star Wars guests such as Giancarlo Esposito (Breaking Bad, Revolution) and Nichelle Nichols (Star Trek: TOS and films). Throw in a massive costume contest, a dealers’ room and enough geeky panels and activities to run you ragged all week-end, and it’s no wonder Cain is billing the event as the “ultimate geekend.”
The con runs today through Sunday at the Marriott Denver Tech Center, 4900 South Syracuse Street, and the Hilton Garden Inn, 7675 East Union Avenue. Three-day passes start at $55 ($24 for kids ages six to ten) in advance, with single-day and special-event passes also available.
