This is the first event of the year for us, and as a smaller con its the perfect way to start out the con season. Located up in Colorado Springs this is Galaxy Fest’s third year, and our first year attending. We are excited to see several attractions, and have the opportunity to catch up with friends as well as several guests. There will also be some fun activities to meet all of our geeky needs. This year I am reporting and helping out for our friends at Lords of Geek and I cannot be more excited.
One of the most exciting parts about Galaxy Fest is the guests, and Galaxy Fest has some guests this year that I am sure you will enjoy. The guests include but are not limited to: Cara Nicole, Beverly Washburn, Jody Lynn Nye, James Hampton, Joyce De Witt, Kathy Garver, Laurie Jacobson, Mari Deese Hampton, Marta Kristen, Matthew Gurnsey, Paul Bradford, Richard Herd, Samantha Shu, and The Stubby Shillelaghs. And let’s not forget about all the exciting activities that Galaxy fest will have. Just like any other event you will get to enjoy zombie fest as well as the film festival. There will also be some great activities that everyone loves such as gaming and some fun panels for everyone to attend. Everything from Steampunk to Doctor Who there should be a panel there for everyone to enjoy. This is a great con to not feel so rushed to get from one panel or guest to the next. Its great because you can enjoy all the attractions and actually have time to catch up with friends (and breathe) from one attraction to the next. The panel I am most looking forward to is The Doctor Who panel. I am also excited to catch up with the Film Festival, and see what the different guests have to say. The Film Festival is also having a Q&A session where you can meet and ask the film directors questions. Its always fun to enjoy zombiefest, which will also be there.
If you are coming in from out of town or the Denver area Galaxy Fest has some great accommodations set up at the Antler’s Hilton. By attending you will get a discount for the hotel and also receive some convention bucks to spend along the way. There are a few nights that are completely sold out on hotels, so call and grab yours fast before they sell out completely. Regardless we hope to see you there, and please check out our coverage during and after the event.
