Cosplay, short for costume play, is like a geek fashion show. But instead of clothes coming from high-end designers, the costumes are based on video games, anime, manga, TV Shows, movies and books. Each contestant will take the Geek Stage in beautiful handcrafted designs of their favorite characters for a chance to win the Best in Show award. This award is reserved for only the most amazing of designs, so don’t miss out on this one of a kind fashion show!


Free and open to the public. ***Admission subject to venue capacity and age restrictions.
