The upcoming convention will be held on April 8-10 of 2022.
We will once again be at the Cornhusker Hotel in Lincoln NE.
We have three amazing guests lined up:
- Sarah Clemens (Artist)
- Dane and Christy Jessen (Gaming)
We will be requiring Masks to be worn int he convention areas.
We will have hand sanitizer around the convention space for your use.
We have missed seeing everyone over the last two years and are really looking forward to seeing everyone this year.
Guests of Honor:
- Sarah Clemens: Artist
- Dane and Christy Jessen: Gaming
Activities and ways to be involved:
- Writers Contest: Rules
- Programming: 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.
- Gaming: Running all weekend, some scheduled games that you can get a seat at, others that are pick up games of who is there. Note that our Gaming GoH's will be planing games up here off and on through out the weekend.
- Art Show: 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 generally 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: 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.
- Art Jam: A 2 hour block for artists and those interested in art to work on art, to discuss technique, and to enjoy the craft together.
- Art Auction: Many of the pieces of art in the art show will go to the art auction. Come for your chance to acquire that piece that you really want, and for the energy and excitement of the event. It's an event that many con-goers would not miss.
- Opening and Closing Ceremonies: Capstone events for the convention to kick it off, and to wrap it up.
