Catch the Wave

On February 22-24, 2019, MystiCon returns to the Holiday Inn Tanglewood for its ninth year of sci-fi, fantasy, and pop culture fun! The hotel is located on 4468 Starkey Road Southwest in Roanoke, Virginia. 

Attending the three-day show is media guest of honor Robert Picardo (Star Trek: Voyager), author guest of honor Jody Lynn Nye (The Dreamland), gaming guest of honor Steve Jackson (Illuminati), artist guest of honor Ruth Sanderson (A Dwarf’s Tale), musical guest of honor Bella Morte, independent film guest of honor Christine Parker (Blood of the Mummy), convention photographer Jarod Kearney, and master of ceremonies Rich Sigfrit.

While MystiCon announced their guest list, they have chosen to keep the event schedule a mystery, for now. No doubt, similar to past conventions, MystiCon will include activities centered around the enjoyment of literature, art, and imagination. Two events they have announced are the return of the annual MystiCon Art Show and the Masquerade. Attendees will have the chance to view, bid on, and purchase horror, fantasy, and science fiction themed artwork in a silent auction format. Meanwhile, the MystiCon Masquerade is an all ages, all experience levels costume contest. 

The con is running nearly continuously, beginning on Friday at 2 PM and lasting until Sunday at 4 PM. Full weekend passes are $40 for adults, $20 for youths (9-12), and $5 for children 8 and under. A group rate of $30 is also available, along with a $25 pass for military/adult students.
