Our Guests of Honor are just the beginning of what our Program has planned. We’ve assembled a wide and diverse assortment of leading figures in the genres of science fiction, fantasy, horror, comics and alternate history, along with knowledgeable folks from the art world, publishing, costuming, filk singing, gaming, computers, the sciences, and Fandom as well. You’ll find an abundance of activities and events on our many tracks of programming – panels, workshops and demonstrations covering just about every topic and interest imaginable as well as readings, speeches and multi-media presentations. Along with our other usual panels, we’ll feature a plethora of topics for children & adults on current and future science – today’s science fiction, tomorrow’s science.

It all starts Friday night with our “Meet the Pros” event. Plus we have our popular Masquerade, a long-standing tradition at Lunacon.

Schedule

The Lunacon Schedule is now available. Currently, it may be viewed via our mobile-friendly guide. Other formats, including a grid, will follow shortly.

Anime

This year, alongside panels and workshops on Anime and manga, Lunacon Anime will be playing a selection of titles generously donated from Funimation, Viz Media, and RightStuf Anime.

Gaming

Featuring one of the largest game selections of any non-gaming convention in the world, Lunacon's list of over two hundred available-to-play titles are guaranteed to please.  And you're welcome to bring your own to expand the fun!

Shadowcasting

It's the 6th Lunacon for ZEN Productions, which will be performing Rocky Horror on Saturday and a surprise new stage production on Friday!

Costuming

Saturday night at Lunacon means the Masquerade. Let your imagination soar! Bring to life your favorite character from sf, fantasy, anime, or bring to life your own original creation. Or join the audience– it’s almost as much fun to be a spectator.  The Masquerade, as usual, will be run on a Skill Division system. We start off with a Young Fan Division (13 years old and younger) followed by costumers at Novice, Journeyman, and Craftsman/Master levels. Judging is by a panel of experts in the field of costuming. Photographs will be taken and available for purchase on Sunday.

There will also be costuming-oriented Program items during the con and awards given out for great costumes in the hallway.

Filk

Singing of sf/fantasy, media, deep space and medieval times, Filk is Fandom’s own folk music. Songs may be silly or serious, borrow existing tunes or have original ones, and be performed as solos and sing-alongs. And even if you don’t join in, the mini-concerts are sure to entertain and amuse. Traditionally, nightly filksinging goes on into the wee small hours (or 3 am, whichever comes first), and our program offers both open filking and bardic circle.
