Art Room

RavenCon’s Sci Fi and  Fantasy Art show is a celebration of visual arts, committed to presenting uniquely talented artists for your enjoyment. With a stellar lineup of attending artists we invite you to view, discuss and bid on exciting original artwork and prints.


We love gaming so much that we have created the ultimate Game Room Rule: The Gaming Room never closes! Ever!* Play with your group or set up with an invitation to all comers! Entertainment


Panel-led discussions, or Panels, fill up the daytime hours RavenCon, typically one-hour discussions of topics related to the writing craft of science fiction, fantasy, and fandom in general. We offer well-attended topics, that are  scheduled late into the eventing. Some program items are set presentations by experts. Science speakers are among the most popular program items at many conventions. Slides (either photographic or computer), video clips, or handouts might be used for such presentations.
