March 9-11, 2012
James Madison University, Festival Conference Center
Gaming Convention with Fantasy and Sci-Fi programming
Madicon is a convention run at James Madison University, in Harrisonburg, VA and in 2012 will celebrate its 21st anniversary. Madicon is run by the membership of the Science Fiction Fantasy Guild (SFFG), a JMU student organization.
SFFG is very proud of Madicon as we approach the 21 year mark, and in the past we have hosted some really exciting guests, such as C.J. Cherryh, R.K. Post, Patricia C. Wrede, Jim Butcher, Nene Thomas, Margaret Weis and many others. We have a great relationship with the Cthulhu Live group PST Productions, who run fantastic Cthulhu Live events for us each year. We also have a great relationship with White Wolf which attends quite often. For the past few years we have also had participation from Garrison Tyrannus of the 501st Stormtrooper Legion.
We are primarily a gaming convention, running tournaments of all kinds, but we also draw a lot of costumers, college students and general fandom from the Science Fiction and Fantasy crowd. And of course, we have all the normal things you'd expect at such a convention: art, vendors, auctions, panels, speeches, etc. We support a charity in our area as well, the Wildlife Center of Virginia, and they put on a great show with their birds of prey every year.
100% of the proceeds from the Geek Auction and our Charity Auction all go to the Wildlife Center.
$15 through Mar 6
$20 weekend; $8 Fri; $15 Sat; $8 Sun
