Out Of This World
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. For more information and a full schedule, visit www.starland.com or call 303-777-6800.
