What Is RavenCon?

RavenCon is a Richmond-based, fan-run convention. We’re not an out-of-state corporation that is going to host a giant event and then pack up and leave town. We’re here all year long, supporting local businesses and hanging out at your favorite geek hot spots.

RavenCon is the Con of Opportunity

With eleven tracks of programming (more than 300 hours!), attendees will ALWAYS have something to do or see.

  • If you want to game — play in our 24/3 Gaming Room
  • Want to catch an author reading — we have that and more in our many programming tracks
  • Don’t want to attend the literary programming — then why not catch a panel about filking, podcasting, media, or science
  • You’re a night owl — enjoy our late-night programming and check out the exciting room parties
  • Want to spend your weekend shopping — we have a great selection of vendors in our Vendor Room and our Artist & Author Alley
  • Need something to fill an empty spot on your wall — visit our Art Show
  • Don’t want to leave the kids at home — we have an exciting track of Children’s Programming
  • Just finished work on a new costume/cosplay — show it off in our Masquerade
  • Looking for a challenge — try our Escape Room
  • Plus — signings, workshops, concerts, and plenty more!

The RavenCon staff has a vision of what makes a good convention and we are applying our experience to develop a well-rounded event with something for everyone. In addition to having LOTS to do, we try to make your experience hands-on and interactive. We book guests that are happy to spend extra time with the fans (and at no extra charge!).
