Programing  -  Throughout the convention

Panels make up the majority of our programming during the event.  These may be presentations by an individual/group, it may be a forum of discussion between a few people on the panel, possibly it is a interactive session with the audience, or it might be a workshop for some skill.  Some of them are done by our Guests of Honor, however many more of them are done by the community. 

We have a youth programming track that mainly runs on Saturday. (up to 12 years old are considered youth, however older kids are welcome to take part, and to present if they desire to do so. 

Current schedule and descriptions

 

Art Show  -  Friday and Saturday until 6:00PM

Art from local and national, amateur and professional artists are on display and some of the artwork is for sale.  Most of the art is hung on art flats so they are easy to view, the remainder of the art is included in the "print shop".  The Print shop generally has less expensive versions of art from the artists.

Each piece of hanging art on display may be for sale, the artist gets to decide per piece if it is for sale.  If it is for sale you may be able to directly buy it if it has a sale price, or you may be able to place a bid on it if it has a minimum bid (if it has both, the minimum bid price is significantly less than the buy price.)  If someone has placed a bid on a piece, you can bid against them, but it can no longer be bought outright.

Of the pieces that receive multiple bids, they will go to the art auction to allow all those who are interested to bid on it.

Dealers Room  -  Daily till 6:00PM

Here you can buy books, swords, crafts, shirts, home decor, desk toys, art, and much, much, more. Many of our dealers make the items they sell and some will do custom orders. We frequently host a Guest of Honor table where you can shop their work as well.
