VCON 41 has ended
Welcome to the VCON 41 Online Schedule!

VCON is the oldest general-interest science fiction, fantasy, and games convention in Canada and the Pacific Northwest. This 100% volunteer fan-organized convention has promoted the interests of science fiction and fantasy culture in Vancouver BC and its environs since 1971, offering events and exhibits focused on a variety of Science Fiction and Fantasy fandom interest areas such as literature, art, media, music, costumes, comics, tabletop games, electronic games, etc. For more detailed information visit our website: www.vcon.ca.

VCON 41 will be held Sep 30 - Oct 2, 2016, at the Sheraton Vancouver Guildford hotel. The convention’s main theme is "Muppets, Puppets & Marionettes" with a secondary theme of "The Small Press Cabal".

Please take a moment to check out the "Sponsor" tab to see who has helped support this year’s event.

SEPTEMBER 17, 2016: The schedule is now as "final" as it ever gets! Which means that, yes, there will probably still be changes here and there, but generally only to resolve when we’ve accidentally placed one panelist on two panels at the same time, or if a panelist has to cancel.)

(Not So) Family (Friendly) Feud

Vancouver's SEXIEST game show is back for our 3rd year running!!

It's just like regular family feud, except all the regular wholesome "normal" questions have been replaced with something just a little more fun. 

That's right, the questions are kinkier, the prizes are smuttier, and your knowledge of popular-kink will be tested in front of a live audience. And if you'd like to help set the top answers for the questions, you can fill in the official game survey!

Of course, this show is strictly 18+[*]  

A Note from Fandom Feud, the hosting organization:
We'd like to offer special thanks to VCON for continuing to let us get away with this amazing show, year after year!

[*] Well, okay, not strictly 18+... those under 18 may be allowed to attend if we receive explicit permission from a parent or guardian.

(Not So) Family (Friendly) FOOD
If you're looking for a G-Rated baking competition with Martha Stewart and Betty Crocker, YOU HAVE COME TO THE WRONG PLACE!

 (Go to Hospitality for that)

Welcome to (Not So) Family (Friendly) FOOD... the competition where we won't tell you to bake penis cookies... but we WILL tell you that you can! The goal is to create delicious and naughty treats which will be judged in front of a live studio audience, with the hope of winning one of our saucy categories.

Judging Categories include...

Most Titillating Baked Good: You will be judged based on how visually appealing the baked good appears. Be warned, if you completely ignore the taste element it may come back to haunt you!

Most Seducing of Taste Buds: It's not enough for us to like your baked good's flavour... it needs to seduce us. It needs to drive our salivary glands to the point of exhaustion and leave us begging for more.

The SchWINger: To win this best in show prize, your baked good must make our judges stand rigid, at attention. Only the perfect combination of flavour and presentation will win over our masters of mastication.

The "no kink-shaming" Award: We're not sure why you did it... but you sure did! This prize is for the most creative and out-there baked good. Don't worry, we won't judge you for it. Ok, we will, but it won't change what we think about you. Honest.


  • LABEL ALL INGREDIENTS (this is for people's safety more than anything)

  • No baking or cooking on site, dishes must be brought ready to eat

  • No fire. Just no.

  • This event is supposed to be light-hearted and fun, please keep your entries in this same spirit

  • No minors - This event is 18+

  • No Entries that will get you drunk

  • If you are unsure... Ask!

Whose Sassy Line Is It Fandom?
This is the adult-oriented version of "Whose Line Is It Fandom" based on the improv show "Whose Line is it Anyway?" and there is only one thing to remember: There are no dirty minds, just sexy imaginations. And if you have a silly, sexy, nerdy imagination, then come laugh and play at this improv show!

As adult themes will be front and center, this is officially an 18+ event. However, those under 18 may be allowed to attend if we receive explicit permission from a parent or guardian.
