Penguicon 2019

Penguicon is a not-for-profit, community-run convention for open source software, science fiction, music, gaming, DIY, and more. Panel topics include technology, science, eco/green, literature, costuming, food, gaming (board and video), webcomics, action/adventure, music, film, anime and an after dark event. .This is a big hang out for ALL areas of the geek/nerd community. What better way to meet people who wave the geek/nerd flag? People come to Penguicon to learn about securing their network, and also how to make their own cheese. They learn how to create chiptunes on their gameboy, and come listen to sci-fi. There is also the Maker Market which is like a dealer room except they don’t accept commodities, only thing’s people have designed themselves. If you need a place to recharge, check out the con suite which has free soda and food all week long.
Penguicon is a convention tailored mainly for adults. While kids are welcome, there are no special passes or events for them. Please keep that in mind.

Blood Bash ’19 is the third iteration of the Meggaxp horror/valentine’s spinoff show, and is sure to be better than ever! This year we are expanding to a *kind of* 2-day festival, as fans of horror movies will get to enjoy TWO DAYS of horror films with slaying, slashing, gore and more!

Friday, February 15th is our bonus day this year! While our vendors are setting up for the show on Saturday, the FILM ROOM will be open and showing all kinds of horror films! The lineup is yet to be announced, but know that the bar and screening room will be open for our patrons to enjoy even more gore!

Saturday, February 16th will be the traditional Blood Bash day! This is when fans of horror, schlock, gore and more can come into the Commonwealth Commerce Center and enjoy an entire day filled with horror vendors, filmmakers, guests, crafters, video games, horror trivia challenges, paranormal podcasts, medium readings, VR Expeirences and much more!

The CONTINUUM 2018

The Continuum is a celebration of science-fiction, fantasy, hard science, music, gaming, animation, film and cosplay.
The Continuum is not your typical convention! We stand out with our well-supplied Convention Hospitality Suite, a Saturday Night Costume Ball, a merchandise area with a wide variety of offerings, several tracks of programming of interest to members and a loyal following of staff and panel participants. Our programming includes literature/sci-fi/fantasy, science/space, music and gaming. There is always something of interest to everyone going on! We also have a video room that screens rare anime and fan-created offerings not seen elsewhere. For NaNoWriMo participants, we offer prep workshops and panels focused on writing.

At The Continuum, you can have the type of day where you attend a tea tasting and history lesson before learning to swordfight, take a breather in a panel where your favorite author discusses world building, then end the day by painting miniatures and listening to someone sing about Star Wars.

Blood Bash ’18 – Horror Show!

The people have asked for it, and we have listened to them! Meggaxp is proud to be bringing BLOOD BASH back for Valentine’s Weekend, 2018! People who came to Blood Bash in 2017 had a BLAST, and we were flooded with emails and Facebook requests asking if we were going to do it again….well, turns out – we are!!!

Here’s what to look forward to this year:

Horror vendors, artists, and exhibitors – – – Once again we will feature a vendor room FILLED with vendors selling original horror art, old VHS movies, posters, horror themed candy, masks, and even more bizarre stuff.

Film festival – This year we are bringing several independent film producers to Blood Bash to show off their amazing work in our film room! Also, if you are interested in showing off YOUR OWN horror feature / short, please get ahold of us via Facebook!

Cosplay Contest – Just like last year, at the after-party, we will once again feature a cosplay contest for best male and best female cosplayers!

Scream Queen Contest – Last year’s Scream Queen contest was an awesome event, and this year we are going to see who, if anyone, can dethrone last year’s champion!

Burlesque Show – Yes, we know that we said we were going to have this last year, but our dancer had issues making it to the venue………………………………………..……………………....so………………this year we have a new team lined up, and they are incredible! More to be announced soon!

My Bloody Valentine Dinner / Dance – Last year our catered dinner was the PERFECT way to celebrate Valentine’s Day – and WHAT A DEAL IT WAS! We will once again be offering up gourmet meals for you / you and your significant other – – – – at a deal so good you’ll die for it!

Horror Gaming Exhibit – Back again this year will be your chance to see how well you can do at some classic and modern video games – such as Call of Duty : Zombies, Left 4 Dead, Castlevania, and more!
