June 1. – 2. 2024

The program for Fantasticon 2024

We are currently working on the program and changes will happen

Full description of the program items will follow or see who is on the program.

Friday the 31st

Meet and greet: 17:00-20:00
We set up the con and hang out and talk. Everyone is welcome even without a ticket, so if you just want to say hi, now is a good time. If you want to volunteer to do some light and easy jobs, we need help preparing the badges, hanging posters, setting up chairs and a bunch of other jobs that requires no experience other than a willingness to move things. If you need to set up a booth, now is a great time. If you are new to Fantasticon this is a really great opportunity to meet the crew behind the convection as well as other convection-goers.

We are probably going out to find something to eat and a drink together afterwards and you are welcome to join us.

The café is the social hub of Fantasticon. Here we find people chatting and socialising between program items.
