Thursday, 10/24: Registration and live podcast
Vendor check-in and attendee registration start at 5pm and will continue until 10pm. We will kick-off the Con with a short introduction and a live podcast with The Kingcast..

Friday, 10/25: Stephen King Limited Editions - Art, History, and Publishing
Friday’s panels are focused on the art and production of SK books. We will start with a conversation between a panel of artists who have contributed to SK limited and trade editions. That will serve as a springboard for further discussion of King’s limited works by a panel of book collectors, followed by a presentation of the timeline and production history of some of the more famous limited editions. After this we will continue the conversation by inviting two limited edition publishers to join us to discuss their experiences creating some of the most iconic King limited editions ever made.

Saturday, 10/26 - 7:00pm: Masquerade Ball and Costume Contest
We will end the Con on a high note - with dancing! Saturday Panels will conclude by 4pm. At 7pm, we will reopen the doors to music and decorations and contest winners and cash bars. Dress to impress! We will be awarding the prize for best Costume and other fun stuff!

TBD: Dollar Babies
This is an ongoing process; we have submitted films as they were submitted to us, and we are waiting to hear back from The Man Himself (or, rather, his lawyers), regarding the films we will be allowed to show and any limitations that may be imposed. Depending on the number and duration of films that are shown, the DBs will at minimum comprise a movie night on Friday and a panel on Saturday. If we have enough runtime and permission, we are considering a separate dedicated space where the films will be screened throughout the duration of the Con
