StellarCon is a wonderful little convention run out of High Point, North Carolina, catering to a range of different fandoms, exotic and familiar: Whether you're into science fiction, fantasy, gaming, podcasting, or costuming, there's something here to please every taste.
Come see the Storm Troopers of the Carolina Garrison of the 501st at their home convention. Peruse the beautiful artwork in the art gallery and consider picking up a little something to hang on the walls back home and poke your nose in our Dealer room full of books, t-shirts, costume pieces, games, and more. Be sure to stop in to sing a little karaoke with some Klingons, visit our dance, and attend some of the many discussion panels led by our esteemed celebrity guests. Feel free to bring the kids, because the convention is family friendly and offers a wide range of activities aimed at our younger fans.
StellarCon draws around 500 attendees a year, providing a diverse array of new and old fans to meet. Panels and signings' short lines ensure a rich experience and contact with nearly everyone. Best of all, you get the opportunity to interact with our celebrity guests on a personal level, and who doesn't want the chance to sit down with authors, artists, and other professionals to ask them questions and hear their stories and advice? Come hang out with old friends and new at North Carolina's longest running convention – StellarCon!
StellarCon is sponsored by the UNCG Science Fiction Fantasy Federation.
