It’s now been three years since I called Connecticon a dark horse among busy conventions. I still stand by that claim, though if you take a look at the con’s featured guest list this year, most folks would call me crazy.
In 2012 the show ran smoothly and went by quickly. It was by no means a small con, but it certainly felt like one. I had the pleasure of returning last year, taking my youngest sister once more, and we somehow had even more fun at that convention than the first.
This “massively multi-genre convention” continues to rep fandoms all over the map–with special guests from television and comics and online media, events that cover cosplay and panels featuring George Takei, there’s really nothing you can’t find at Connecticon. Every year the stars get brighter and the halls get…fuller…but that family-friendly feel hasn’t disappeared.
Here’s our schedule for this year’s show:
