Transdimentional Rift acts as Gateway to Vandalia
The Rift acts as Gateway to Vandalia!

Coming May 26th-28th

Parkersburg, WV

Thanks to the Heroes of Vandalia, last year the Clock’ODial was recovered from the pirates, but Captain Hook’s misfire has left a RIFT in the fabric of space and time! There are folks from other worlds, other dimensions, and even other universes coming through the Rift into Vandalia! We should have the Rift repaired by the end of the convention but as with all 4th dimension gravitational anomalies which impact the multiverse, there is one small complication. When we seal the Rift there will be a moment when either time or space will exist in our realm one second longer than the other. Experts tell us that this could have serious consequences for Vandalia. So the Time-Bandits and the Space-Cadets are trying to win your vote for which dimension gets sealed last. If the Time Bandits win then Vandalia-Con 2018 will be cast back into the old west (or a western world one might say), but if the Space-Cadets win we will be thrust into the outer-most reaches of space (the final frontier) or maybe even into (a galaxy far far away). Of course the choice is yours. Tickets will be given for participation in classes, contests, and events. Each ticket counts as a vote- so heroes choose your own adventure as we gather at the Rift here at Vandalia-Con 2017!

Bring your favorite fandom to Vandalia-Con, as the Rift opens a crossroads across the multiverse. Everyone is welcome, from Dr. Who to the Mothman. Cosplay your favorite characters as they venture through the Rift, or don your favorite Steampunk attire to welcome our guests to the land of Vandalia! The only limits are your imagination! As always all proceeds will be donated to help bring cancer prevention, screening, outreach, and education services to the women of West Virginia.
