This convention is like the Baskin-Robbins of fandom: It has all the flavors. There’s Star Wars, Star Trek, video games, board games, steampunk, Harry Potter, Wrestlemania, Beetlejuice, Doctor Who, The Rocky Horror Picture Show, burlesque, drag, arts and crafts, trivia, karaoke, casino games, Match Game and even more.

Fandom convention celebrates many niche interests and passions including science fiction, cosplay, gaming, film, performance art and more. The four-day festival runs Thursday through Sunday, March 14-17, with more than 400 contests, workshops, competitions, tournaments, meet & greets and more activities in total.
