This Event is Over – Thanks to Everyone Who Made it So Fun!
Saturday, August 10th
Calling all comic lovers, super hero wannabees, costumers, cosplayers and just anyone who is geeking out over the first ever Comic Con in Salt Lake! That’s right, Comic Con is coming to town and we are taking the lid off for this momentous occasion with a fun-filled, action-packed, 3 part geek festival that will spread the buzz about Comic Con all over the Salt Lake area!
Part One of the festivities, the “Pre-Party”, is a Scavenger Hunt/Photo Contest going on all over downtown Salt Lake City.
Part Two, the “PARTY”, will be a FREE Comic Con Bash at the Fear Factory haunted house.
Part Three, the “AFTER PARTY”, is a 21 and older Costume Mix and Mingle at the Hotel & Club Elevate night club.
To get this party started we invite you to dress like and become like the character of your favorite Comic, Video Game, Super Hero, etc. Then, in full costume regalia, you will have the chance to parade through the streets of Salt Lake City collecting raffle tickets and snapping pictures of you and your team at 10 secret locations. These 10 locations will be announced Saturday morning on the Salt Lake Comic Con Facebook page.
Upon arrival at each location, anyone dressed in costume will be given a raffle ticket from the Comic Con volunteer (also dressed in costume) stationed there. Raffle tickets can be turned in later that afternoon at the Fear Factory party for a chance to win awesome giveaways. Our outstanding volunteers will be stationed at each location between 12pm and 4pm. Make sure to visit the designated locations during this 4 hour block if you want to obtain raffle tickets. You may have to search for the costumed volunteers, but they will be somewhere in or around the specified locations.
In order to enter the Photo Contest, you are encouraged to take the most unique and creative photos of yourself or team (only 6 people per team) possible, post the pictures on Facebook. Photos will be awarded in separate categories (for example: most creative, best represents Salt Lake Comic Con, all around best photo, etc.) at a later date.
If you just want to enter the photo contest and are not interested in collecting raffle tickets, you can take photos at these locations any time during the day on August 10th and mark them accordingly.
At 4:00 pm a mass of Costumed, Characters will converge upon the Fear Factory, located at 666 West 800 South, SLC, Utah. There we will have local celebrity MC’s, live music, food vendors and a whole lotta fun for FREE! Come meet and mingle with others who are just as excited about Salt Lake Comic Con as you are. Oh and did we mention that this incredible party is FREE? Because yeah, it’s FREE!!!
When you arrive at the Fear Factory, you will have different chances to get free stuff. Yes, again, we did say FREE! Woohoo! Each participant who can show pictures of themselves or their team at 5 out of the 10 designated locations will receive a FREE, official Salt Lake Comic Con T-shirt. You can’t get these anywhere else and you will be the first people to wear a Salt Lake Comic Con T-shirt ever! How cool is that?
At the Fear Factory party you can also turn in all of the raffle tickets you collected during the Scavenger Hunt for a chance to win great prizes, including some coveted tickets to the actual Salt Lake Comic Con. Keep in mind, the more designated locations you visit, the more raffle tickets you can obtain and the greater your chances are to win! Winners will be announced by our stupendous MC’s during this fabulous, FREE party. Contestants must be present to win.
An After Party is being held at The Hotel & Club Elevate night club at 155 W 300 S SLC, UT from 8:00pm until 1:00am. Come in full costume and enjoy the rest of the night with great music, food and drinks. Remember, this is a night club so according to Utah law it is required that you be 21 or over to attend. You must have your ID to get in to the after party. Cost for this event is $10 for men and $5 for women.
Join the scene and help us spread the word about Salt Lake Comic Con, generate some more noise, and get everyone else in Salt Lake City excited for our first ever pop culture extraveganza!!!
