What is DarkoverCon?

DarkoverCon is a science fiction and fantasy convention held every year over Thanksgiving weekend in Timonium, Maryland. Because we are a small convention (roughly 500 people) you have a chance to see our guests up close and personal, meet new people, shop undisturbed, attend workshops, etc., something you can't always do at larger conventions.

This year we will be celebrating DarkoverCon 34 and much like a Fibonacci sequence we are adding on to what we have built before to get something even greater!

Besides several full tracks of science fiction/fantasy programming, we offer assorted music programming (primarily, but not exclusively, folk), workshops where you can learn assorted arts or crafts, video programming, esoteric programing, dancing, and more. This year we are once again planning a full track of Steampunk programming. See our links for more information about our convention.

And of course, if you have any questions about DarkoverCon, feel free to contact the ChairAlton, Jaelle.

Looking forward to seeing you there!
