Imagine a 3-day street faire where a person could sample and participate in the finest content that many different communities and conventions have to offer. All-Con fills 3 halls, 3 suites, 6 panel rooms, a performance room, a tiered seating projection room, and 3 ballrooms with exhibits, workshops, discussions, game shows, performances, and competitions. The selection of activities changes every hour from the start of the day until 2:00 a.m. on Friday and Saturday nights and until 5:00 p.m. on Sunday.
All-Con offers the core structure expected of most conventions. The vendor room and exhibit halls have 80 booths and tables. There is an art show gallery which also has a live auction event.
With over 200 different choices to offer in one weekend, All-Con has a set of headlining features around which the convention is constructed each year. The traditional Cosplay competition and Rocky Horror Picture Show shadow casting performance are Friday. Saturday has a ball jointed doll mini-con, Ms. Star Wars pageant, Maid contest, Texas Hold'em poker tournament, Costume contest, Repo: The Genetic Opera shadow cast performance, professional burlesque performance, and a themed dance. Sunday's signature is an overall super hero theme, ending with the Super Hero Sunday competition.
The rest of the one hundred and ninety-plus events are a combination of All-Con supplied content (like our many game shows throughout the weekend), performances hired by the convention, and a recipe of the best community run features that change year-to-year.
