Magical Realm Fantasy Faire 2019

The Magical Realm was just bursting at the seams with fun and laughter, cheers and enjoyment. So much so, that we had tons of it left over. So, the fairies gathered it up to store, and begged us to have at least one more! We have searched our calendars, sourced our dates, and decided to grant the wish of all our fairies and friends who had such an amazing time! We in the Magical Realm are proud to say that we will be hosting another year of faire and festivities. So, we are rounding up our entertainers, merchants, vikings, pirates and more to hoist their flags, raise their swords, and march into another year! We are pleased to invite one and all to come and visit the Magical Realm this year!”

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.
