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 2024 will be held Sunday June 9, 2024 from 11:30 AM to 7:00 PM at the Maplewood Pavilion in Maplewood Park, Deerfield Illinois.

Maplewood Park is about two blocks from the Deerfield Metra station on the Milwaukee District North (MD-N) line.

This is Windycon/ISFiC's annual picnic and is open to all fen. We'll be supplying burgers, dogs, chips, and drinks. If you'd like to bring a side dish or dessert to share, that would be great!

We're asking for $10 per person to defray costs. You can make a donation before the event using Square. If you would prefer to make a donation on arrival (either in cash or via credit card), please drop us an email at square at windycon dot org to let us know that you (and others in your family) are coming so that we can buy the right amount of food.
