Back to the place it all began…

We are super excited to be kicking this event off as a three day festival at the Crowne Plaza in Downtown Portland.  Many shows had their beginning there and it’s the perfect stage for this Summer’s event.  The pool is cold, the hot tub inviting, we have an outdoor cafe for various functions, and a completely remodeled space that has so much room for activities!

Everyone who purchases a ticket ahead of time is also entered into our weekly raffle for amazing prizes.

Host a Panel
Our convention wouldn’t be great without the involvement of all our fellow fans out there. A convention can offer many great events but only becomes legendary with the addition of content provided by the fans. We encourage people to submit panels and events they would like to run. We provide the space and you provide the content!

Panel submissions are now closed for this year and we have a wealth of great content. Check back soon for our full schedule.
