Beach City Con is the first ever Steven Universe-themed convention, taking place at the Virginia Beach Hotel and Conference Center October 13-15, 2017. Our Kickstarter campaign was extremely successful, raising over three times our goal amount, which is allowing us to put together stellar programming similar to what we do for Ice & Fire Con, as well as book several guests!
The first Ice & Fire Con took place in April 2013 at Ravenwood Castle in New Plymouth, Ohio, and 2017 marks our FIFTH annual convention! We were the first ever US-based Song of Ice and Fire/Game of Thrones convention, and our success is mostly thanks to a very high percentage of return attendees.
Beginning in the fall of 2013, Saga Event Planning’s CEO Tara and COO K-K have planned a succession of geeky-themed vacations (including a Pirate-themed weekend, one centered around the Harry Potter series, and even Star Wars). These “Not-a-Cons” have taken place at the aforementioned Ravenwood Castle, a ski resort, and even Las Vegas, and involved group travel coordination, fun photoshoots, themed gaming sessions, and more!
