DakuCon

  • Radisson Hotel Denver Southeast (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

Daku Con is a refreshing local con that is reminiscent of cons long gone, when Con was designed for an adult crowd, and didn’t specifically cater to families and children.

Daku Con features a wide variety of topics centered around nerddom, including Anime, Gaming, Comic Books, Tabletop and Video Gaming, with some 18+ content thrown in for good measure, and with adult-centric events and panels living alongside standard con-fare programming.

We here at Daku Con want to bring a fun and relaxed convention environment to Colorado’s 18+ nerds.

Nerd Nite Denver

Official motto: Be there, be square.
Unofficial motto: Like the Discovery Channel™…with beer.

Nerd Nite is a world-wide monthly lecture series that, to quote sister city Nerd Nite San Francisco, strives for an “inebriated, salacious, yet deeply academic vibe.”

This informal, typically hilarious and always informative event is for nerds and non-nerds alike to gather, meet, laugh, and drink.

Stanley Film Fest
Apr
30
to May 3

Stanley Film Fest

The Stanley Film Festival is a unique opportunity to showcase exhilarating voices in classic and contemporary horror within a haunted space chosen to amplify the experience beyond the terrors shown on screen. Armed with the goal of procuring the most imaginative tales of fright from around the globe, we will proudly present short and feature films that offer a vast spectrum of tantalizing thrills and ghastly delights throughout the weekend. Like the best spooky stories told in the dark, each will be wildly distinct, inventive and unexpected. The Stanley Hotel’s ghostly history as one of our eeriest landmarks, and its inspiration for some of cinema’s most unnerving spectacles, make this the perfect place to tempt the spirits and bring out your deepest fears in a way no other venue can. Enter if you dare, and let these films stay with you forever. And ever. And ever.
