The North American Discworld Convention, like the Disc itself, contains a treasure trove of events and personalities. If you've never been to a con before (Discworld or otherwise) you'll find a friendly and vibrant crowd of Discworld fans here to welcome you. You'll meet people from across the country and around the world - all here to celebrate the Discworld and the amazing adventures we've all enjoyed.
We've got lots of events in store including: the traditional Gala banquet, the always-impressive Maskerade, the Charity Auction and the Art Show! Don't forget the amazing wares from astounding vendors and special events and panels with our invited guests. All guilds are welcome, so if you fancy yourself as an artificer, a seamstress, an assassin or a clown, you'll be sure to be in good company. And this is only the start!
We’re enjoying the endeavors of the Witches this time, which means all their travels and all the different species they’ve met, including but not limited to: Feegles, Trolls, Dwarves, Seamstresses, Anthropomorphic Personifications, Wizards, and Vampires. The only limit is your imagination. If you don't feel like dressing the part, that's perfectly okay too. Should you change your mind, Chaos Costuming will be available to help you create a last-minute marvel.
Take a look at the previous North American Discworld Convention sites to get an idea of what has gone before…
All of this is housed in a truly fantastic, centrally located hotel, over Labor Day weekend.
The hotel, the Sheraton New Orleans, has many advantages, including the city’s largest ballroom.
Not only does the hotel have all the amenities you might expect from a top rated convention hotel, it also offers breathtaking views over the Mississippi or the French Quarter from most guest rooms. The room rates are unbelievable for those booking with our convention and remember that lots of fan gatherings occur in those hours after the official events have ended for the day, so we hope you stay with us.
In short, you can expect an amazing gathering of like minded individuals, fantastic costumes and happy people. Not to mention the gorgeous guests, the dynamic dealers, the heavenly hotel, the marvelous maskerade, the alluring alliteration, the glittering gala banquet and of course, the flamboyant, the fantastic, the fabulous fans! Come join us!
