StarFest lands in Tech Center

Posted

It's time for the annual StarFest convention, and fans can expect what's said to be the largest Star Wars Day celebration in the nation.

Actually, it's a full weekend with Light Saber Pinata Bashes, JarJar Binks Dunk Tank, Yoda Sound-Alike contest, R2D2 robots, storm troopers and costume contests as well as lots of guest performers — villains, heroes and sheroes.

It takes place at the Marriott Tech Center, 4900 S. Syracuse Ave., just north of Belleview Avenue and east of Interstate 25, opening at 2 p.m. May 2 and continuing to 6 p.m. May 4.

Several other conventions are happening the same weekend: ComicsFest, HorrorFest, RoboFest and DigiFest.

General-admission tickets are $20 for May 2; $35 for May 3 or 4, Saturday or Sunday; $55 for a three-day pass. Half-price for children 6-10; children younger than 6 free. Buy online and find more information at StarFestDenver.com. (Upgrades and VIP packages available.)
