STARTING TOMORROW: Geek Fan Expo 2014 @ Doubletree Dearborn

Get your geek on! The schedule is so packed with awesomeness, I plan on being there all three days. So if you see a girl with a mohawk wearing a bright orange jacket with Gamera on the back, come say hi—even in this crowd, the chances are pretty high that it's me. —DC in Detroit

What is Geek Fan Expo?
Geek Fan Expo is an all-inclusive Geek-Fandom Experience. We include programming from all walks of Geekdom, and have designed the experience around you. Together with you, we are building the next generation of convention by bringing geeks of every type together to share a truly social geek fan experience.

Our interactive forum focuses on quality entertainment and production to bring you a both modern and nostalgic fan experience. Featuring destination events, topical discussion panels, workshops, vendor and artist exhibitions, contests and more!

This looks like a con for every flavor of geek — check out the whole schedule here!

In the wake of the headlines for mega-conventions such as San-Diego Comic Con in California, Gen Con in Indianapolis, and Dragon Con in Atlanta, a first year convention right in our backyard is debuting next weekend, and is touting some high caliber entertainment. Geek Fan Expo aims to bring geeks, fans, and nerds together for an all-inclusive celebration of Geek-Fandom September 5, 6 and 7 at the Double Tree Hotel in Dearborn. Special guests include voice actor Rob Paulsen and Star Wars/science fiction author Timothy Zahn. 

Rob Paulsen is the voice behind over 250 animated characters including Yakko Warner and Pinky from Animaniacs, half the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Arthur in The Tick and hundreds more. Timothy Zahn is the bestselling author of ten Star Wars novels as well as forty five novels and over a hundred short stories. The musical guest for Geek Fan Expo will be Stone Clover, Detroit’s own high energy drinking troupe with special guest Ford Theater Reunion. 

In addition to the guests, Geek Fan Expo offers an immersive fan experience with cosplay events, panel discussions, nerdy flirty speed dating, a celebrity sing-a-long, paranormal investigations and something for every geek to love.
