The Worldcon 76 Events Division is planning many fabulous and spectacular events.Thursday is the Opening Ceremonies, including special guests, announcements, extra surprises, and opening the time capsule from MagiCon, the 50th Worldcon in 1992. Later that evening we are planning a red carpet Retro Hugo Party and Dance. And don’t miss The Mirror’s Revenge, a sequel to Snow White.
Then head to 3Below for the first of four Film Festivals: the Science Fiction Short Film Fest, organized by Chris Garcia.
Friday, on the main stage, come experience the Guest of Honor Music Concerts.
Saturday night is the Masquerade! Costumers of all levels are welcome to participate. Look for the Masquerade registration form on our website (coming soon!).
Sunday evening is The 2018 Hugo Ceremony, with our Master of Ceremonies, Artist Guest of Honor John Picacio. A night for celebration for all of our finalists.
Monday afternoon is the Closing Ceremonies, and hand off to Dublin 2019 and NASFiC 2019. And maybe the time capsule will be packed and sealed for another 25 years!
Our other Film Festivals include: Psychotronix, featuring 16mm oddities and relics; Creature Features, a special playlist of some of the Bob Wilkins on-air bits and other movies from that era; and as of January 4 we have 48 film submissions from 12 countries for the Worldcon76 Film Festival!
You can also dance your butt off at Worldcon. We’ll have Regency, Swing, Waltz, Contra, and others. We will also use the dance space for yoga and other movement activities.
But wait, there’s more! We are also planning a Future is Now Fashion Show, Blood Drive, and Robot Sumo Wrestling! We’re looking forward to presenting all of this, and other ideas at Worldcon 76!
