8 - 10 NOV 2013 HALIFAX, NOVA SCOTIA
It takes thousands of volunteer hours during the year to pull off the event. It takes over 200 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? We’ve captured some of our favourite convention moments, costumes, and community events from the past few years and stored them here for your viewing pleasure. Come check them out!
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!
We are currently processing refund requests for Saturday, November 9th. The last day to apply for a refund is December 11th. In order to process things efficiently we require some additional information beyond the initial request. If possible please send your TicketBud ticket, but if that’s not available please provide your name, information about your ticket and the email address of the PayPal account used to purchase the ticket to firstname.lastname@example.org. We appreciate your patience, the process is manual so we’re working through things as quickly as possible.
Through our raffle draw and charity auction during the convention weekend, we managed to raise some money for donation to the IWK Foundation and Kids Help Phone!
First up, the Raffle for the X-Box 360 brought in $387 altogether, which will be provided solely to the IWK.
Our raffle winner was Ian Allen – Ian wasn’t in the building at the time of the draw, and when we called him he didn’t believe us at first. He quickly made his way back to the WTCC and picked up his prize.
Second up, the combined total for the live and silent auctions is $7,085. In addition, we have been notified that Aperture Studios will be providing a donation of $3000 from the proceeds of their photo booth at the convention!
That brings our grand total up to an amazing $10,472 for our two charities!
A huge THANK YOU to everyone who contributed and helped make this possible! It’s really great to see the amazing level of support from our community, and we hope we can do even better next year!
Quick Update! There was also a raffle available for a few Dr Who Police Public Call Box signs, that were offered by Trevor Barras as a fundraiser for a Habitat For Humanity Global Village project.
The winning names from that raffle were:
Friday – Sandra Butler # 713472
Saturday – Ralph Jackson # 713513
Sunday – Jeff Power # 823026
Trevor says he was able to get very close to his goal for the building project that will take place in Bolivia next year.
