The biggest day of the convention starts early (some events at 8:00AM) and continue throughout the night. Conflict Warning: Because of the size and scope of StarFest, there is no way for you to see and do everything. With dozens of events starting simultaneously, and across three convention centers, you are going to have to pick and choose. We work really hard programming events that cater to just about everyone’s special interests so the variety of entertainment at the show may be a little daunting and overwhelm you. Think of it like an all-you-can-eat buffet, everything looks great, but remember to limit to how much you put on your plate so you don’t end up missing out on something you really like!
Keep in mind that most of the movie studio presentations will take place on Saturday, make sure you consult the program schedule and program book carefully for details, we wouldn’t want you to miss something that you’d be sorry about later. We try to list the events in the schedule and then give you a lot more details about those events in the program book. If you look at both carefully, chances are you’ll come up with a “must see” list that will make your experience memorable.
The Saturday night festivities are what make StarFest unique. We usually have a live performance right before the Costume Contest in our Main Events Room and follow that up with The Federation Ball in the Marriott DTC Atrium. Don’t miss the Ball, it’s an incredible costume (optional) party that creates an incredible mix of things to see and do that just can’t be matched. The Ball runs until midnight and simultaneously, throughout the hotels, you’ll find room parties and fun to keep you busy into the wee hours of the morning.
