RetroX returns to Idaho Falls with a bigger, better event: Stormtroopers and Superheroes Gather! -LocalNews8.com

IDAHO FALLS, Idaho (KIFI) – Eastern Idaho's RetroX event returns to Idaho Falls for the second time after great success in 2023. Last year, over 700 fans made their way to the event within the first hour, and more than 2,000 packed the small gathering throughout the day.

This year the event was moved to a larger venue due to its popularity last year.

“It’s going to be bigger, it’s going to be better,” RetroX event planner Brandon Kimball told Local News 8 last year at the conclusion of the convention.

Over 70 vendors from across the Intermountain West will be on-site selling a wide variety of toys, collectibles, comics and video games.

RetroX will welcome special celebrity guests Kathy Garver and Stephanie Nadolny as part of this year's event.

Ms. Garver is a Hollywood graduate who stars opposite Charlton Heston in “The Ten Commandments” and portrays characters such as Firestar in “Spider-Man and His Amazing Friends” and Pepper in “Chuck Norris: Karate Commandos.”

Ms. Nadolny is known for voicing characters in the TV series Dragon Ball Z, including the series' main protagonists Goku and Gohan, and for voice acting for several other video games and TV shows.

The event also includes appearances by the 501st Stormtrooper Legion, princesses and superheroes from Storybook Parties Idaho, the Snake River Ghostbuster Group and a Lego building contest hosted by Minifigure Mania.

The Comic-Con-style event celebrating pop culture will take place Friday and Saturday, May 3-4, 2024, from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. at the Idaho Falls Elks Lodge, 406 E Elva Street.

RetroX has partnered with the Idaho Falls Community Food Basket to offer discounted tickets to all guests who bring an unexpired canned food donation on the day of the event.
