Welcome to DarkCon 2014
January 9-12, 2014
Location: Phoenix Airport Marriott
On the weekend of January 9 through January 12, 2014, Phoenix Arizona will host a fantasy/science fiction convention like no other – DarkCon 2014.
DarkCon is a fantasy, science fiction, media and gaming convention. It is darker and grittier than most such events. It features cutting edge guests and programming, art of all kinds, make-and-take workshops, a fantastic merchant room, costuming, plus all manner of gaming and many special events. From the best themed parties ever seen to the legendary VIP member perks, DarkCon is famous with fans and professionals for quality and attention to detail.
DarkCon is sponsored by the Dark Ones Inc., a Phoenix-based 501(c)10 organization that has been organizing conventions and large events for almost two decades. Making everyone feel comfortable and included is very important to DarkCon. We have settled on an every-other-year schedule, helping to keep each event uniquely focused. The 2012 convention had a horror and steampunk theme with over 650 attendees. Our 2014 convention will be primarily themed around the worlds of dark fantasy and science fiction including the realms of cyberpunk and steampunk.
We are working on providing a sensory experience for our attendees with an ambiance geared towards cyberpunk. Also planned are several workshops where our fans will create cyberpunk and steampunk accessories for their costuming. Techno-mages, mad scientists, vampires, enforcers, wizards, and dystopian heroes/heroines will be engaged in all manner of activities. There will be dances, parties, concerts, great programming (adult and otherwise), and lots of stuff to see and do! Hope to see you as part of this epic event!
