MediaFest Convention Kick-off
StarFest starts early than you probably thought! We are planning an incredible kick-off at the Marriott DTC on Friday, May 2nd at 6:00AM. Channel 31's Chris Parente will be broadcasting live from the StarFest Main Events Room.

Come in costume and we'll supply donuts and juice to keep you fueled.

In addition to the live remote broadcast, there will be print and web press present to interview people. All we ask is that you come in costume and we'll get you some TV exposure.

There will be door prizes and entertainment all morning to keep things moving and fun. If you have a story to tell, let us know and perhaps we can line up an interview or two for you. MediaFest doesn't cost anything - all we ask is that you show up in costume at the Main Events Room at the Marriott.

Christie Golden EXCLUSIVE World of WarCraft: War Crimes Book Signing

Be the first to own a copy of Christie's new novel, World of Warcraft: War Crimes. We'll have it for sale BEFORE it hits the stores. Get yours autographed by Christie!

From New York Times bestselling and award-winning author Christie Golden, comes WORLD OF WARCRAFT: WAR CRIMES (Gallery Books; May 6th, 2014; Hardcover; $26.00), the sensational new direct tie-in to the upcoming video game expansion set Warlords of Draenor  from Blizzard Entertainment.

 

The brutal siege of Orgimmar is over.

Alliance and Horde forces have stripped Garrosh Hellscream, one of the most reviled figures on Azeroth, of his title as warchief. His thirst for conquest devastated cities nearly tore the Horde apart, and destroyed countless lives throughout the World of Warcraft.

Now, on the legendary continent of Pandaria, he will stand trial for his transgressions. Renowned leaders from across the world have gathered to witness this historic event. As the trial unfolds, agents of the bronze dragonflight present shocking visions of Garrosh’s atrocities. For many of those in attendance, these glimpses into history force them to relive painful memories and even question their own innocence or guilt. For others, the chilling details stoke the flames of their hatred.

Unbeknownst to anyone, shadowy forces are at work on Azeroth, threatening not only the court’s ability to mete out justice….but also the lives of everyone at the trial.

Star Trek Collectibles Auction
A long time ago, in what seems a galaxy far, far away... Stephen Walker used to do convention auctions. For some crazy reason, he’s going to do it again this year. Why, you ask? Because he’s got some stuff worth auctioning. StarFest’s font of information - the guy with the largest Star Trek collection I’ve ever seen in 30+ years of Star Trek collecting -- is selling it off. Let’s just call it what it is, the “Phil Watson almost completely everything ever made for Star Trek” collection.

Make a trip over to the information tables in the Atrium of the Marriott to take a peek at some of the rare stuff that Phil is taking out of the vault to sell at StarFest.

Phil is going to bring down enough stuff for the auction that there are bound to be some great deals to be had. A portion of the proceeds will be donated to our convention charity - The Dumb Friends League of Denver.
