After checking in at the Convention Registration Desk on Friday (usually it opens by 4pm), we suggest you make sure to spend some time looking through the printed program so that you can carefully plan your weekend. Since we have so many things happening at the same time, it’s important that you create a "Must Attend" list of events right away. A lot of convention events start at 6:00pm, so you’ll want to have your plan in place well before then.
There are three events on Friday that will require some preparation on your part, we’ve listed them here because we thought it would be prudent to give you some advance notice:
The Friday Night Meet & Greet Party
April 15, 2011 7:00pm -8:30pm
($24.95 per person)
Have you always wished you had the chance to meet the StarFest guests and talk to them face to face?
Would you like to spent some relaxed time talking to the guests and other convention attendees before the show to find out what events they are looking forward to? How about letting the guests tell you a little bit about the things that really interest them? There is probably a never ending list of the kinds of things that you could discuss at the StarFest Meet & Greet.
It’s a fun and relaxing way to sit down across the table from fellow attendees and our celebrities and just talk about whatever pops into your head. Don’t be shy, everyone is at the convention to have a good time. You’d be surprised at how much you probably have in common with everyone else and how friendly they are.
At this year’s party Morena Baccarin, Mark Sheppard, Peter Mayhew, Jeffrey Combs, Casey Biggs, Luciana Carro, Dayton Ward, Kevin Dilmore, and Kevin Atkins will all be there to talk and enjoy desserts and nonalcoholic beverages with you. Everything is designed to give you a chance to mingle, talk, listen, and socialize.
Desserts being served include cookies, brownies and an assortment of raspberry and chocolate mousses. Tickets are $24.95 per person.
(No Entry Fee)
Of course, like most things at StarFest, we are always looking for ways to challenge you and show off your humor and creativity.
We would love to have you create a centerpiece for the Meet & Greet Party that reflects your love for your favorite movie or TV series.
After you make your masterpiece, bring it to the StarFest Convention Information Table on Friday, April 15th between 6:00pm and 7:00pm so we can have it placed on a table at the party. If nothing else, it will give you something to talk about!
Following the party, the centerpieces will be moved to the Convention Information Table so everyone at the convention can enjoy your masterpiece. Be clever, creative, and boldly go where no centerpiece has gone before! We will be taking votes from the people visiting the Information Tables during the convention so be sure to have your friends stuff the ballot box in your favor.
We will award a special prize to the winning centerpiece.
Main Events Room
April 15, 2011 9:00pm
($21 per person)
Following the Meet & Greet, there will be a special performance by Jeffrey Combs and Casey Biggs in our Main Events Room. Together, the two villains of Star Trek: Deep Space Nine will reunite to bring you a fun-filled evening where they portray numerous roles from the plays that inspired them to become actors.
It’s designed to be a night packed with laughs, surprises and of course, villainy at its best.
There is separate admission available to the Dos Banditos! performance, but we suggest you purchase the special combo ticket to save money.
