Local News

SHREVEPORT, La. (KTAL/KMSS) — The Geek’d Convention is returning to the Shreveport Convention Center this weekend. The convention will be a three-day event featuring celebrities like Trish Stratus, LeVar Burton, Michael Rooker, and more.

This year’s event will be the biggest one in the five-year history of Geek’d Con. Founder Greg Atoms says the Shreveport Geek’d Con is the largest locally produced comic-con in the state.

“I would argue with anyone that Shreveport-Bossier is pound for pound the most geekiest in the United States. We have so many local game stores here. We have so many comic book stores here for a city of this size. You wouldn’t think a city of this size wouldn’t support an event like this but they are,” said Atoms.

Tonight is the beginning of the comic con event with a preview of the vendors. On Saturday and Sunday, you can catch up with all of the celebrities and panel discussions. For more information regarding timing, click here.
