GalaxyFest 2013 - February 8, 9, and 10, 2013

GalaxyFest will be at the Antler's Hotel Feb 8 through 10th, with a Zombie Crawl on 2/7.

Online ticket sales end on 2/5, after that time you will need to purchase tkts at the door. Members of this group can purchase weekend tickets and daily passes online and get a 20% discount by using the VIP code liska.

There are a variety of costume and cosplay opportunities as well as fashion shows; to include the Lords and Ladies of Galifrey 50th Grand Fashion Extravaganza on Saturday 2/9 at 7:00pm.

Scheduled guests include actress Claudia Christian (Babylon5), Felix Silva (Cousin Itt on "The Addams Family", the robot Twiki on "Buck Rogers in the 25th Century", and an Ewok in "Return of the Jedi"), Kathy Coleman (Holly Marshall on “Land of the Lost"), Frazer Hines (Jamie McCrimmon from "Doctor Who"), and Noah Hathaway (Atreyu in "The Neverending Story" and Boxey on the original "Battlestar Galactica").

As this November is the 50th anniversary of the TV show Doctor Who, GalaxyFest will have numerous Doctor Who related events, including a fashion show on Saturday evening. Frazer Hines (Jamie McCrimmon) will be back again and well known Doctor Who director Colin Spaull will be at GalaxyFest as well. The Timey-Wimey Blue Box Facebook group was asked to run a Doctor Who fan panel at GalaxyFest, so I will be moderating that panel at 5:00pm on Friday 2/8 in the Learning Center at the Antler's Hotel. Please come to the panel and help us reminisce and chat about favorite Doctors, Companions, story arces, spin offs, old vs new series and much more!

TESLA Steampunk will be hosting the Steampunk Tea on Sunday, February 10th, in the Katharine Lee Bates (KLB) room on the 13th floor. Please feel free to drop by anytime between 2:00 and 4:00pm for a nice hot cuppa, some delicious cake, a pleasant atmosphere and some delightful conversation with like minded individuals. The Steampunk Tea is included with all convention daily tickets and weekend passes, and it is a wonderful way to wind down an exciting convention weekend.

The game room is Palmer, it will be to the RIGHT of the main entrance off Cascade. It will be open from Friday though Sunday, with Hero Clix at 10pm on Friday and Magic at 10pm on Saturday nights. There will be a variety of RPGs, Boardgames, Kid's Games, both scheduled and unscheduled, and a nightly Werewolf of Miller's Hollow game. All of this is covered under the weekend or daily pass.

Look for Petrie's Family Games in the vendor room. The Gaming Events in the Springs meetup group will have a fan table with the Sci Fi, Fantasy and Steampunk meetup group, so drop by to chat, hear about events and see the pictures.
