Events and Programming Questions

  • What kind of programming will you have?
  • How do I get to be a panelist?
  • Can I hold my wedding at Anthrocon?
  • Can I propose to my significant other at Anthrocon?
  • Can I use Anthrocon's programming space for a private function?
  • Why don't you have more programming involving puppets (or costumes, or writing, or spirituality, or Chinese checkers, or...)?
  • What kind of programming will you have?
  • We have a very diverse slate of programs ranging from workshops to panel discussions to live entertainment. We will post our schedule a few weeks prior to the convention.

  • How do I get to be a panelist?
  • Please fill out our Suggest-A-Panel form or send an email to our programming staff with your programming idea or a brief description of your expertise. Please note! We receive a lot of email at our programming address, and it is not always practical to answer each and every inquiry. You may also post a request in our programming forum.

  • Can I hold my wedding at Anthrocon?
  • Sorry, no. We get far too many requests to honor them all.

    Holding your wedding during the convention at a nearby location is perfectly acceptable, and has happened before.

  • Can I propose to my significant other at Anthrocon?
  • Again, due to the number of requests, we are unable to offer it as part of our official programming or as a stage event.

    If you wish to propose to your significant other while the convention is taking place, feel free.

  • Can I use Anthrocon's programming space for a private function?
  • Again, sorry, but no. Anthrocon needs all of its programming space. Even space that may appear to be unused is often needed for setup or for overflow from other events. We are also responsible for what happens in our programming space, and the question of liability comes up.

  • Why don't you have more programming involving puppets (or costumes, or writing, or spirituality, or Chinese checkers, or...)?
  • Anthrocon strives to provide a variety of programming events so that there is something for everyone. Our programming space is limited and we have only so many hours in the weekend; thus, if we were cater too strongly to one particular programming track, we would have to take programming space away from other tracks. If you have ideas for programming, please submit them to the Programming Department, but please also understand that we cannot use every idea we receive.
