Shreveport’s Comic Con, Geek’d Con, Announces 2020 Dates
Geek'd Con, Shreveport's biggest comic and pop culture event, is back for 2020!
The show will once again be at the Shreveport Convention Center in Downtown Shreveport. The 2020 edition of Geek'd Con will take place August 21st through August 23rd.
For the last few years, Geek'd Con has been Shreveport's version of a "comic con", bringing in guests like Elvira Mistress of the Dark (Cassandra Peterson), Michael Rooker, LeVar Burton, Lou Ferrigno, Chewbacca (Peter Mayhew), Chris Sarandon, Tara Reid, comic book legend George Perez, Joey Fatone, Billy West, and a ton of other huge geek celebrities. As well as WWE Hall of Fame members Mick Foley, Trish Stratus, and Kevin Nash.
In addition to the celebrity guests, Geek'd Con welcomes hundreds of vendor and artists booths every year. From local artists to comic book vendors from states like New York, Georgia, and Florida.
The event started back in 2015, and has been held at the Shreveport Convention Center every year. Weekend attendance every year has topped 10,000 guests, and last year's event hit all-time highs, topping 16,000 in attendance, with an economic impact of at least $2.2 million for the Shreveport and Bossier area (according to the Shreveport-Bossier Convention and Tourist Bureau).
