We here at Icygeek try to have a complete list of Louisville geek conventions. However, we had to make an executive decision and remove Fandom Fest from or listings. Without warning their event, which was to take place next weekend, was moved from the state fairgrounds to am event center area in Jefferson Mall. Also, Weird Al Yankovic has decided to cancel his appearance, and there are no refunds offered by the con.
Sorry for almost no updates this year. It has been hell here in our creche.
Anyway, we hope for most posts soon. In the meanwhile, we have updated our Convention page for the next Derby City and Lexington Comic Cons, and added a brand new event called Swaptember.
Quoth the penguin…evermore.
Our friends at Nerd Louisville are sponsoring a convention called Nerdlouvia on November 12 & 13. It is being posted on our Convention page.
Just found out about the 2016 Cincinnati Comic Expo, to be held September 23-25. It has been added to our convention page.
It is stated to be the last Midwest appearance of Stan Lee.
Indianapolis’ free 3-day gaming convention, Who’s Yer Con, has just announced their 2017 date. It has been posted on our Upcoming Conventions page.
We just learned of a horror convention called Days of the Dead being located in Louisville on Labor Day Weekend. It has been added to our list of Geek cons in the region.
We went thru our past convention list, and looked to see which ones have already announced a 2017 date and which ones haven’t. Past cons which do not yet have a new date announced are in our Past Con page, which you can find on the above page listing if you mouse over the Convention tab,
We discovered new geek conventions and have put them on our upcoming conventions page.
This weekend is Ohayocon, the annual winter anime convention held at the Greater Columbus Convention Center (but mostly the Hyatt Regency) in Columbus, Ohio. Having gone there a couple time, and having gone to the GCCC over 20 times (due to the Origins Game Fair and various Magic: the Gathering PTQs), I’ve made a list of things to know before you go and while you are there.
