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 2020, originally scheduled for Sunday, June 7, 2020, has been cancelled.
Due to the current situation with COVID-19, ISFiC, Inc., which sponsors Picnicon, had decided that it would be inappropriate to hold our annual event this year. While we regret that we will not be able to see you all in person, your health and safety will always be our primary concern. While the physical event cannot happen, our staff is looking into potential virtual options.
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.
