The first FantaCon was held in August 1979. This new show will be 34 years since our very first show!
We are known for having interesting horror film and comic book guests, tons of rare merchandise and providing a more intimate covention experience than the mega shows,
We invite you to join us this year as we take over The Marriott in Albany, NY!!
We want you to be able to bring your entire family to our special event. So to that end we have decided that all children 10 and under will be admitted for FREE as long as they are accompanied by an adult ticket holder.
Please remember that some of the displays may be frightening to very young children.
Don't miss your chance to get an Official Authorized Night of the Living Dead Photo Op!! There are two different Photo Ops and each one is limited to just 20 people!! The Photo Ops are listed on our ticket page and must be purchased in advance.
Do not miss this rare opportunity!
The Official FantaCon 2013 Program Magazine is done and it is absolutley spectacular!! Steve Bissette actually did TWO full color cover collages so we decided to print them both!! The covers are printed on very heavy gloss stock and the outside wraparound cover is in full color AND the inside wraparound cover is also in full color!! The interior pages are absolutely loaded with information on all of our guests along with many rare photos of Chas. Balun, Raoul Vezina, Phil Seuling and the creation of the legendary FantaCo store.
The cover price of the program is $9.95 but you can get a copy FREE if you buy a two day ticket.
For those people buying one day tickets you may purchase one program at half price. See ticket order form.
