    Schedule for the second half of 2011 is starting to shape up.

    InConJunction July 1-3 (Indianapolis) Never been. Looks pretty small based on the guest list.

    Fright Night Film Fest/Fandomfest July 22-24 (Louisville) The local horror fest is going with some mainstream guests this year and calling it "Fandomfest". Jeremy Bulloch is coming so this will be an event for us. Dedicated thread to follow.

    Whedonfest August 5-7 (Scottsville Ky) All things Joss Whedon from Buffy to Browncoats to the Avengers (coming in 2012). It was a good time last year and I plan on returning.

    GenCon August 4-7 (Indianapolis) The granddaddy of them all (locally). If you're not a Whedonite this is the place for a geek to be this weekend.

    Level 22 Game Expo Sept 10-11 (Louisville)Not alot known except they claim to be a touring video game expo and Louisville will be the first stop.

    Light the Night Walk Oct 1 (Louisville) See the dedicated thread.

    Baxter Ave Halloween Parade Oct 7 (Louisville) Again it's a Friday night so might be hard to get out and without Dar to lead the way it won't be the same but keep this in the back of your mind.

    GMX Oct 21-23 (Nashville) General genre con that's been growing the last few years.

    Pumpkinfest Oct 29 (Franklin TN) Fall/Halloween street fest. Was a great time last year. Get there early though, otherwise you'll be parking very far away.

    And keep an eye out for Wizard World Cinci and Nashville...dates TBA

    I haven't seen anything posted and just heard of this last night, but there is a con going on this weekend from April 27th to May 2nd called Hauntcon.

    I don't think I'll be able to go, but some others may want to check it out.

    I'm not planning on it. Looking at mapquest Chicago is only 5+ hours away. I thought it was farther. I've driven more than that to attend a con. Might look at C2E2 for next year. Thanks for the heads up.

    Wizard World Chicago August 11-14 (Chicago)

    I have friends who did C2E2 this year, and I tooled around there last year. It's a good con in a great location. Hopefully they build up so that we can have a nice, big one relatively close.
