ValleyCon 45 features programming geared towards fun but with an added bonus of educational benefit. We feature professional writers, actors and artists who are actively working in-and are at the top of-their fields in panels and workshops, all for a low cost pass! Most of our guests participate in workshops around the country that cost those attendees hundreds of dollars each but for the cost of less than 2 movie tickets (matinees, even!) ValleyCon attendees can meet, talk and work with these highly regarded professionals.
ValleyCon 45 also continues its’ awards functions, with awards for achievement in illustrative and literary arts. ValleyCon has been honored with permission to name our awards after true giants in the field like Roger and Julie Corman, Edgar Rice Burroughs, H.G. Wells and Jules Verne. Permissions were granted from the official estates of all these incredible talents. Awards will be announced at the banquet, Saturday, October 19th.
ValleyCon also features a huge vendor and exhibitor’s room! ValleyCon 45 has a full all-weekend long slate of presentations, panels, events, demonstrations, and video games and game tournaments of all kinds. ValleyCon is very family friendly with kid’s events all during the day, especially on Saturday with the KIDS COSTUME CONTEST! Returning as Hosts of the Costume Contests are Jack FM’s SCOTCH and BRITTA! We feature an Art Print Show and of course, theme parties! Saturday night features special live performance events like the Cosplay Costume Contest, a costume contest for adults and teens (and open for all ages to enjoy!) and late-night fun by the Valkyries of the Valley!
