Art Show

We are proud to have Alan M. Clark as our Artist Guest of Honor for DemiCon 27. Clark’s work will be on display along with submissions from other professional and amateur artists.

The DemiCon Art Show is open to all interested artists and allows artists to share their work with our attendees while simultaneously promoting Fantasy and Science Fiction art by helping artists to display and sell their work.


The Art Show is divided in to several categories.

The MAIN DISPLAY area includes original works of art, 3-dimensional art, and single copies of prints of original art. Unless an art piece is marked “NFS – Not For Sale”, our convention attendees may bid on, or buy via quick sale, any pieces in this area. Attendees will also be able to vote for the show’s best amateur artist, professional artist, amateur art piece, and professional piece of art. (more…)

Children’s Activities

Please note, the Children’s Activities room will be a zombie “safe” zone. Please no scary or very realistic zombies!

DemiCon is proud to be a family-friendly convention with a room dedicated to children’s activities.  In addition, the con offers a wide array of opportunities for families to participate together at panels, contests and so much more.

Please be aware that DemiCon’s policies require anyone aged 12 and under to be accompanied by a paid adult at all times while in any of the convention areas. Please do not leave your children unattended.

If you have any programming ideas or questions for our Children’s Programming Department, please contact us by selecting CHILDREN under VENUES & PROGRAMMING using our contact form.



The ConSuite (aka Hospitality Suite) is on the 5th floor. Follow the signs when you exit the elevator. It is a place to refresh, rest, recharge and find quality banter to stimulate your senses.

The bar is well stocked, homebrew is tapped, and we also offer a small selection of non-alcoholic beverages. If you have suggestions for a particular concoction, be sure to bring your ideas to the ConSuite! We can’t guarantee anything, but we’ll certainly take all requests under consideration.

You can also expect to see such delicacies of the Fhannish world as fresh-popped popcorn, sweets & salty snacks, fruits, veggies, plus a few surprises. Be sure to find your way to the 5th floor from time to time (wearing your con badge, of course). While the companions you’ll find there are consistently delightful, the ConSuite’s yummy selections will vary throughout the day.

If you want to be a ConSuite Collaborator or if you’re feeling particularly generous, we’d be happy to help put that good feeling to use! Drop off your donations of cash or checks at the ConSuite. Everything will go towards making an even better spread, and we’ll let everyone know just how COOL you are! If you contribute $25 or more, you receive a nifty sponsor ribbon for your con badge.

Please note that the ConSuite will not be accepting donations of food or beverage at the con. If you wish to donate or have questions about sponsoring, please contact us using the contact form by selecting CONSUITE/HOSPITALITY under VENUES & PROGRAMMING.

Teen Lounge

Sometimes teens just need a place to get away from those pesky parents.  DemiCon has that place for you!  Teens, ages 13 through 18, are welcome to this area to enjoy games, events, conversation, or just hanging around.  The Teen Lounge is located in the hotel’s lower level, next to the Hub at the bottom of the open staircase.
