Walking through the Kimmel Arena at UNC Asheville this weekend will be like living in a highlight reel of all your favorite movies — or your favorite fanfic. It’s once again time to geek out at Geek Out, the annual popular arts convention that draws fans of science fiction, fantasy, comics, anime and more to express their mutual love of film, art, costuming and fun.
Hosted by local fan association Multiverse, Geek Out expanded this year to host several events throughout the week, including after-hours parties, a burlesque revue, a pub crawl and a trivia night. But the main event is this weekend, as the Sherill Center hosts panels, celebrity guests, specialty vendors and even mock battles in the floor of the arena.
Want to join the fun? The Sherill Center will be home to superheros, stormtroopers, Sailor Soliders, various interpretations of the TARDIS and so much more for one final day.
Geek Out continues Sunday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Online tickets sales are now closed, but you can still get tickets at the door. Sunday passes are $15. Visit geekout.asheville.com for more information, including the full schedule of after-parties and additional events.
