Up until recently we were having issues with our web site which made it difficult to post any updates here. I am happy to report that we "have found the keys" to make it all work again.


This update is also here to remind everyone to have a fun AND safe con experience. I know conventions have tons of super interesting things to do and see but do not forget to eat food, drink plenty of water, and of course get at least

some sleep.

Speaking of tons of awesome things to do.  We have our schedule up and running with all the information you need on panels, viewings, tournaments and whatever else you might be looking for. The page is mobile-friendly, will be updated to reflect any last-minute changes, and serves as a handy dandy tool to make sure you stay up to date all weekend.

Time for another guest announcement! We're pleased to welcome online reviewer Linkara of Atop the Fourth Wall to Geek.Kon 2017!

Three more guest announcements for Geek.Kon 2017! This year we'll welcome veteran game designer Eloy Lasanta, RPG and fiction writer Neall Raemonn Price, and author Ryter Rong!

Time for another guest announcement! Our third guest is Brad Swaile, a voice actor best known as Light Yagami in Death Note with additional roles in Ranma 1/2, assorted Gundam series, and countless other shows!

Time to submit your panel! Every year, we have a broad range of attendee-organized panels on their topics of expertise. We're looking for knowledgeable, thoughtful fans to present on their topics of choice! Panel submissions are open until June 30!
