Un- Con XIII 

The Un-Con Story

Un-Con-Ventional was conceived as a one shot event, a tribute to the ending of the fan convention known as ‘The Camp Dover Peace Conference’ and its creator Joe Manning. It's become a passion that has created an atmosphere of being a fun, family friendly event.

Un-Con strives to bring an affordable gathering of fans of all genres together for a weekend of fan fiction, trading, games, laughs and music.

Whether your passion is Star Trek, Battle Star Galactica, Star Wars, Babylon 5, Transformers, My Little Pony, Doctor Who, anime, comic books, furries, or an obscure reference from a 50's television show, ALL ARE WELCOME. We invite you to join us in the fight to keep fandom alive.

So ‘geek up’ and join us to help make our year twelve an event filled with fun, laughter and happy memories.
