Our PROGRAM SCHEDULE WIKI displays our most current scheduling.
Please contact programming to make changes/additions/deletions (your changes will not be saved). We hope to finalise the schedule by Sept 15th and will make every effort to accommodate your requests.
Albacon loves costumes. We encourage our members to wear them throughout the con. Unlike costumes created especially to be shown onstage during the masquerade, hall costumes are costumes that are comfortable and sturdy enough for you to wear for hours at con events, parties, and in the halls! You may win a hall costume award ribbon and certificate from one of our roving hall costume judges.
Since Albacon 1996, gaming has been a part of the Albacon experience. Our family style gaming environment offers you a chance to stop by between panels/events and relax for a few minutes. Or stay longer and participate in a variety of games. More Info on Gaming
Albacon 2010 will be having two video rooms, featuring the latest anime in the US, and live action films from around the world. Check out our Video Schedule
