Shreveport’s Geek Week Loads Up The Calendar With Parties
Shreveport's comic con, Geek'd Con, is coming back for another big year in Downtown Shreveport. The show started in 2015, and has grown into one of the premiere events in the Shreveport-Bossier area. Not only that, the show has been the largest consistently active comic con style show in the entire state of Louisiana.
This year's event is August 19th-21st at the Shreveport Convention Center. The celebrity guest lineup includes Matthew Lillard, Skeet Ulrich, Natasha Henstridge, Clint Howard, Dog The Bounty Hunter, and many more.
There will also be a ton of comic book creators added to the lineup for 2022. Including the creator of X-Men member Rogue Michael Golden, Marvel's Zombie King Arthur Suydam, and Geek'd Con fan favorite Roland Paris, among others.
Geek'd Con is a mash-up of celebrity meet and greets, geeky shopping, cosplay, games, prizes, and fun.
That shopping is a big part of the event. With more than 200 vendor spaces that will be occupied during the weekend, there's going to be something for everyone. From comic books, to collectibles, action figures, posters, shirts, custom artwork, handcrafted goods, and so much more. Most of it will be very geeky too.
There is always a ton of cosplay at Geek'd Con too. Including the annual Cosplay Contest, photo ops, and more. But hopefully you have more than one cosplay for this year, because there are going to be multiple other events across the city that week.
This year, Shreveport will be flooded with geeky events the week of Geek'd Con. From trivia nights to block parties, there will be a lot of opportunities to embrace your geeky side all week...oh, and to win prizes too. Check out the list of events here:
