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!

Hal-Con Homecoming Prom


Did you miss your Prom? Feel shunned or too shy to enjoy yours? This is where you want to be. We’re all part of Prom Royalty here.

Everybody is welcome! Join us for a night of well-mannered frivolity. (Under 19 is OK, but you will need to wear a wristband.) There will be a photo booth, great tunes featuring a live band, and dancing until you never want to wear shoes again!

We Want a New Website!

We think it’s time…we’ve been using our current design for the last couple of years and we’re ready for something new! Think you’ve got what it takes to give the site a facelift for 2015? We’re accepting RFPs for a company or individual to work with to help us refresh our look.

Applications now closed

Thank you to all the applicants who applied.
We are currently reviewing the proposals and will return with a decision made in the evening of February 23rd.

Hal-Con 2015 Updates!

Tickets will be going on sale on May the 4th – a little bit later than we’ve sold them in the past but you’ve said you’d rather have a better idea of what guests are coming before you buy your tickets, so we’ve listened. Prices will be remaining the same. Thanks to the increased capacity of the Scotia Bank Centre, we will be selling more tickets across the board even Warp Speed Passes! 25% more Warp Speed Passes to be exact!

Volunteer Applications will open in early April, final date is to be determined, more information when things are finalized.

The Vendor package should go online in early April, and applications will open in mid to late April. There will be more vendor spots available thanks to the increased capacity of the Scotia Bank Centre, prices are still being finalized for booths and tables and will be available in the vendor package if not sooner.

And finally re: guests – the guest team is hard at work and will, as always, share when they have things finalized. They have some really cool feelers out right now, hopefully they’ll know more soon!
