Hal-Con

When: Nov. 12-13 2011

The great thing about Hal-Con is not just that it brings big names in sci-fi and fantasy to Halifax but that it also gives local institutions a bigger stage to spread the geek word. Like last year, Hal-Con’s 2011 convention is a mix of Halifamous and Hollywood famous, featuring guests such as Fat Apollo (of Geeks vs. Nerds fame) and Nicholas Brendon (AKA Xander from Buffy). The fact that Hal-Con manages to stay true to its Halifax roots while at the same time giving the experience of a big sci-fi con makes it unique from other conventions. On top of gaming tournaments, panels, workshops, and autograph sessions there will also be a silent auction to raise money for the IWK. So, if last year you lost out on a signed Kate Beaton print because someone kept upping the price (you know who you are), this might be the year where you come out ahead. –Shannon Fay
