Picnicon Chicagoland's own Relaxacon
A Relaxacon is a gathering for con-loving folks that has little or no formal structure or schedule: No panels, no signings or readings, no long roster of guests.
It's primarily an opportunity for fen, friends, and kin to get together to have a good time.
In our case, it's a picnic!
Picnicon will take place on Sunday, June 7, 2020, beginning at 11:00 at Maplewood Park in Deerfield
ISFiC, Inc., which sponsors Picnicon, is monitoring the current coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak at the local, state, and federal levels. Currently, we are still anticipating hosting Picnicon on June 7th, 2020. We take the safety of all of our participants and other park users very seriously, and we will continue to discuss precautionary measures to promote a healthy event space and abide by the policies and guidance of the Lake County Forest Preserve District.
We will keep this web page updated with the most up to date information regarding Picnicon.
We offer our deepest sympathies for all of those affected by this unprecedented crisis, be it our fellow con runners, those whose employment and daily routine have been disrupted, or those who have contracted or have a loved one who has contracted the disease. Our thoughts are with you, and we wish you the best.
