Autographs & Photographs

We will be releasing information about our autographs & photographs later in the year.


It takes thousands of volunteer hours during the year to pull off the event. It takes over 350 people to run the event during the nerdiest weekend in Halifax. Be part of the fun and get to check out behind the scenes!



With a jam-packed 3-day convention, many con goers will want to stay on site. Check out this page for hotel deals, getting to/from the airport and downtown, plus contact info for our travel agent if you need help planning!


What is a convention without great memories? Our attendees captured some of their favourite convention moments, costumes, and community events from the past few years and posted them on out Facebook group for your viewing pleasure. Come check them out!

Johnny Yong Bosch, Kate Leth and Gisele Lagace!


We’re extremely pleased to share that Johnny Yong Bosch aka Adam Park, the Black Power Ranger will be joining us at Hal-Con 2014. Now the fact that he’s a Power Ranger is admittedly impressive, but Bosch is also a very well known voice actor.  He’s voiced characters like Vash the Stampede in Trigun, as well as Ichigo Kurasaki in Bleach along with a long, long list of other characters in anime and video games. And as if that wasn’t enough – in his spare time he is the lead singer and rhythm guitarist of the band Eyeshine.

Kate Leth is no stranger to Hal-Con attendees, and we’re excited to have her back! Kate is the author of two Adventure Time graphic novels, the ongoing Bravest Warriors series, and her autobiographical webcomic Kate or Die.

Gisele Lagace is also a return guest – she’s known for her popular webcomics, such as Ménage à 3, Eerie Cuties, Sticky Dilly Buns, Penny and Aggie, and Cool Cat Studio. When not working on her own projects, she pencils for Archie comics doing interiors and covers.

Hal-Con Welcomes Kristian Nairn!

Kristian-Nairn-BigWe’ve been keeping this one a secret for a very long time! We’re all thrilled to finally be able to announce that Kristian Nairn will be a guest at Hal-Con 2014. Nairn is likely best known to Hal-Con attendees as the fan favourite Hodor on the Game of Thrones but he is also a well known DJ and electronic music producer. Not only will he be participating in the usual Q&A, autograph and photograph sessions but he will also be DJing the final hour of our dance! With this latest announcement, we’re anticipating that tickets are going to sell even faster! Get them while they’re still available. Tickets will be hitting local shops in the month of July.
