There is a lot to celebrate at this year’s StarFest and some unique challenges putting all the StarFest Festivals under one roof. It is a lot like a giant jigsaw puzzle of fun. Our last convention at this facility was about 12 years ago and for those who have been with us for awhile, you’ll notice some familiar spaces and places with some exciting updates and changes thrown in.
We will be making guest announcements as the confirmations role in. StarFest has always been Denver’s unique event where you can meet friends – old and new, see and wear great costumes, browse through thousands of collectible items, attend and participate in live performances & panels, and – most importantly – talk face-to-face with Actors, Directors, Producers, Writers, Illustrators, Scientists, Special Effects Artists – people just like you.
All events take place at the Crowne Plaza Convention Hotel Complex. Sleeping rooms at the Crowne Plaza are now sold out but the Country Inn and Suites (close by) is accepting discounted reservations right now. Make sure you tell them your with StarFest, so you get the convention rate. The Country Inn and Suites also offer transportation to the Crowne Plaza and a complementary breakfast when you stay at their hotel.
