Announcing Beach City Con, the First Ever Steven Universe Convention
Get ready for something entirely new: Beach City Con will be a Steven Universe themed convention, to be held October 13th-17th 2017, in Virginia Beach, VA.
The first convention of its kind to be centered solely around the Cartoon Network show, Beach City Con will be an intimate event for people to share in their love for the Crystal Gems and their human friends. The convention will feature exciting programming suitable for fans of all ages, including discussion panels, sing-a-longs, an artists’ alley, cosplay competitions, and much more. The organizers of Beach City Con are dedicated to fostering an inclusive, friendly atmosphere where everyone is welcome. The convention will be held right on the water at the Virgina Beach Resort Hotel, which has previous experience in hosting conventions.
The convention is being organized by Saga Event Planning, established by the founder of Ice & Fire Con, Tara Lynne. Ice & Fire Con was established in 2012 and has seen four successful years of fan-run, non-profit conventions. Saga Event Planning also organizes themed parties and pub crawls. Their staff are experienced event organisers and financial planners, as well as huge Steven Universe fans, who are excited to provide the best experience they can. If support and interest proves to be strong enough, they also hope to expand the con to the UK as well, for European fans who may have trouble visiting the USA.
If you’re interested in the event, be sure to check out their official website for further information. You can also follow either the con’s official Facebook or Twitter pages to receive the latest updates. If you would like to help support Beach City Con, a Kickstarter will be launching later this summer to help generate the funds to cover the event. Backers will be able to get everything from a place on the official mailing list to priority ticket booking to advance tickets and lodging for all three days. Together, we can Keep Beach City Con Weird!
