Attend Starbase Indy


Starbase Indy has been a Geek Family Thanksgiving Tradition since 1988. With a combination of actors, astronauts, scientists, geeks, and creators sharing their passions and their products, Starbase Indy gives you a chance to learn interesting things and celebrate a positive vision of the future.

Things to do:

  • Play with robots

  • Experience virtual reality

  • Listen to scientists talk about their passions

  • See what bugs taste like

  • Dress up in costume

  • Meet interesting people

  • Make new friends

  • Shop for unique gifts




The Wyndham Indianapolis West was home to the very first Starbase Indy in 1988, and in 2018 we’re back there again. Enjoy a room with two double beds or one king bed for just $97

Starbase Indy happens over two of the biggest shopping days of the year; Black Friday and Small Business Saturday. Our attendees look forward to the shopping experience of Starbase Indy as a time and place to get the stuff they want for the holidays - or just for themselves.


Rather than just an afterthought, we’re making the vendor room a highlight of the convention, with a well-curated mix of unique geeky and gift vendors to fill our space. We’re advertising the vendor room more broadly, and offering “Shopping Badges” for people who want to come in just to shop at Starbase Indy. We’re also promoting free Sunday badges for families who might not come for the whole convention, but are looking for something unique and interesting to do before going back to work and school after Thanksgiving break.


Apply today to join our expanded Vendor room and enjoy being a part of the new Starbase Indy experience.
