ALL-CON has been a community produced fandom convention with foundations built upon Science Fiction, Cosplay, Gaming, Film, and Performance Arts communities in the Dallas, Texas metroplex since 2005. ALL-CON features over 400 individual events during the 4-day convention along with a Wednesday night
pajama party in the main ballroom the night before the convention begins. ALL-CON takes place during the Dallas Independent School District (DISD) Spring Break.
ALL-CON 2018 (March 15-18) is the convention's fourteenth consecutive year of operation. Along with over 400 scheduled events (discussion panels, performances, workshops, game shows, tournaments and competitions, crafts, etc.) we feature industry and celebrity guests. Since ALL-CON is established as having a hotel venue annually, many attendees traditionally remain on-site for the duration of the convention.
The price for a four-day attendance badge, which includes entry for every activity for all four days, starts at $45.00 at the earliest discount and costs only $69.95 at-the-door. Thursday we have an exclusive opening day special where anyone from the general public may attend the convention for just $10 - which may also be used as a credit towards the full upgrade to a 4-day event badge. ALL-CON is inexpensive to attend as well as robustly full-featured. Our outstanding relationship with the hotel allows the property to offer room rates at a significant savings from the published public room rates.
For 2018 we feature one hundred 10'x10' / 20'x10' vendor booths in the Crystal Ballroom; thirty-eight 6'x6' / 8'x6' Artisan tables on the Crystal Foyer; twenty author and small press tables in the Lalique and Hamilton foyers; and a variety of configured fandom tables for local clubs and groups in the Bel-Air hall.
