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!
