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!

Local Events

Hal-Con isn’t just a convention. We are at the forefront of the geek community. We try to work with local partners to provide fun year round. Hal-Con has also put together a calendar of local geek events pulling from various groups and sources. Here you can find out what’s happen in the city!

Alaina Huffman Joins the Hal-Con 2015 Line Up

Last year Supernatural fans were thrilled that we were able to bring King of Hell to Hal-Con – well this year we’re bringing you the most recent challenger to the King’s throne! Please welcome Alaina Huffman to Hal-Con 2015!  Ms. Huffman is perhaps best known for her recent role as Abaddon on Supernatural, but Stargate fans will know her as Lt. Tamara Johansen on Stargate Universe and who could forget her run as Black Canary on Smallville. We hope that you’re as excited as we are that she’s agreed to join us for Hal-Con 2015!

We’ve got a few more guest announcements to come and of course don’t forget (like you could!) that tickets go on sale May the 4th.  Keep watching this spot for all the news!


We <3 Our Local Heroes!

We’re really proud that we’ve maintained a local focus as we’ve continued to expand Hal-Con. Over the past 6 years, we’ve seen huge growth in our community. We’ve made a lot of friends, we’ve seen people’s geek factor sky rocket and groups of people have bonded together to share in a common interest. There’s something pretty powerful in realizing that there are others like you out there waiting to unite! It’s in this spirit that we’ve decided to create a new guest page category called “Local Heroes” where we can celebrate our fellow geeks and their accomplishments. We’re going to be adding to this throughout the year, but we’re thrilled to present the first wave!

Vendor Applications Are Now Open

Applications to be a vendor for Hal-Con 2015 are now open.  Please take a minute to read through everything if you haven’t already, the web page and the accompanying vendor package both contain important information.  The Vendor team has asked that everyone be very specific on the application form, including as much detail about what you sell as possible.  Remember this is an application process.  While we have significantly increased the number of spots this year, there is still no guarantee that everyone will get one.  While we do review all applicants, we do it in the order that you’ve applied, so getting your application in early is important.  We only screen out vendors if there’s a lot of duplication of product, we DO NOT judge the artwork, craftsmanship, or the product that you’re selling.

We’re excited to have expanded into the Scotiabank Centre, and since this will be the main point of entry to Hal-Con 2015,  you will be the first glimpse many of our attendees will have of what’s going to be an amazing event! Thank you for choosing to be a part of it!
