Event Description

About Capricon

At the 29th iteration of the ever-popular Capricon, you’ll get to celebrate giant monsters and mythical beasts. With Strange Beasts Arise as this years theme, the con is poised to be an incredible event!

For four days, this science fiction con will come roaring to live. Founded in 1981, it has been a con staple through the generations. And with a focus on literature, this con has fans world-wide. So, what’s on the menu?

In addition to guests, you’ll get programming on every topic under the sun. Books, film, TV, anime, science, and more. There’s even a children’s track for the kids! Still, we know you’ll spend plenty of time in the dealer’s room and at the art show. But with karaoke, gaming, and all-night parties, this con will be around for years to come. And this is your chance to attend!
