Ice & Fire Con 2017 will feature many special events and activity upgrades for our 5th year anniversary. Here is some of what you can expect…and check this page for further updates, because we aren’t done planning yet!
Weekend Theme: “What is Dead May Never Die”
While this won’t effect every part of the convention, we will be having some extra special celebrations themed around all the characters we’ve lost along the way.
Extended Hours: Thursday through Sunday Night
We will be holding early registration for those arriving Thursday, as well as opening registration at 10 AM on Friday morning (with activities starting at 11 AM that day). And although Game of Thrones won’t be airing during the convention, we’re still having a watch party on Sunday night – keep an eye out for updates on which episodes we’re choosing (the vote will happen in our Facebook group).
Vendors: A first for Ice & Fire Con 2017
We have limited vendor spaces available and aim to choose a diverse group for our first vendor room ever. Applications are open now – please contact us if you are interested in vending at Ice & Fire Con 2017.
Mock Election 2017: A Wild Spirit Wolf Charity Fundraiser!
Instead of stuffing a single ballot box with written votes, Ice & Fire Con 2017’s mock election will feature separate “ballot boxes” for each character who enters the election…and the “ballots” must be in the form of money. Every penny (or rather, quarter and above) that is raised will go to the Wild Spirit Wolf Charity.
Fandom Favorites: Meet the Meta Writers and Podcasters You Know & Love
Our 2017 Fandom Favorites include members of A Podcast of Ice and Fire, ASOIAF University, and History of Westeros. They’ll be on hand to meet, to chat, and they’ll even be running some panels/activities.
Friday Night: “Wight Night with The Manimals”
The NYC-based band The Manimals is coming to Ice & Fire Con 2017 to perform their Game of Thrones concept album Seven! Come dressed as your favorite dead character…or just dressed comfortably to dance the night away to some awesome music!
