Pi-Con: A Celebration of Geekery

Pi-Con bills itself as "The friendliest little convention in New England" and I won't accuse them of exaggerating. They describe themselves as a "celebration of geekery" and have panels and events on Science Fiction, Fantasy, Gaming, LARPs, and Comics. They have readings, panels, parties, performances, and vendors. 
This year -- year number 8 -- it will be held June 27-29, 2014 at the Holiday Inn, Enfield, CT. Having made the trip a number of times myself (check out my past events page), I can attest that the hotel is easy to find, right off the highway. It's small enough to feel homey, but large enough to accommodate the con.

Here's this year's line-up of guests:

Guest of Honor
3-Time Hugo Award Winner
Allen Steele

Guest of Awesome
Justine Graykin

Artist of Awesome
Sarah Morrison

Featured Filker
Dave Weingart

If you're interested in volunteering, please check out the following page. Volunteering is a great way to meet people if you're new to conventions, new to the area, or traveling solo. There's usually some sort of thank-you involved (like a cool tee-shirt), but that's not why you do it. You do it because it's FUN.
