Autographs & Photographs

Autographs and photograph presales are now open!


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!

A Schedule and Presales

Happy September folks, Fall is almost here!   With Fall comes Hal-Con and we are now 66 days out!  We are happy to announce that we’re releasing the first part of our soon to be jampacked schedule for public consumption AND launching presales on autographs and photo ops.  Please keep in mind this is just the first portion of our schedule – it contains stuff related to media guests only – like Q&As and the aforementioned autos and photos plus some other events that we had prescheduled and it is subject to change.  We are hoping to have the panels with our guests scheduled by the middle of September, and the entire schedule with fan run panels good to go by October 1st.

Also, if you’ve been holding off on buying your Saturday Day Pass, you may want to get it soon, we are now 87% sold out of online Saturday passes, and they’re very scarce in stores.  Once they are gone, they are gone…we don’t have a stash put aside for sale at the door.

The White Walker Is Coming!

Ross MullanWe’re thrilled to announce that Ross Mullan will be joining us for Hal-Con 2014.  Mr. Mullan has had a varied career in TV, film and theatre and is also a puppeteer that trained with the Jim Henson Studios in the UK.  He is best known for playing two of TV’s scariest creatures, Game of Thrones’ White Walker and Doctor Who’s The Silence, and is rumoured to have a new creature role in the new series of Doctor Who with Peter Capaldi.  Mr. Mullan will also be doing a special Game of Thrones themed panel with Kristian Nairn on Sunday, November 9th.




Hal-Con Welcomes Mark Sheppard!

While Mr. Sheppard is currently known for his role as the demon Crowley on the CW’s Supernatural, his acting credits include Battlestar Galactica, Firefly, Warehouse 13, Doctor Who, the X-Files and a long list of others!

Hal-Con 2014 is shaping up to be an amazing Con, and we hope you’re planning on joining us on November 7th,8th and 9th! We are now sold out of regularly priced weekend passes both online and at our retail partners, leaving just day passes available. If you’re hoping to attend this year, we strongly suggest not waiting to purchase your tickets -we’d hate to see anyone disappointed! It’s starting to look like there may not be tickets available for sale at the door of the convention this year, so please keep it in mind! See you soon with another guest announcement – and remember Hal-Con is coming…
