The Gathering

  • contact:  gathering@wiscon.net
  • WisCon 41 deadline for proposals:  TBA (but probably around April 1)

The Gathering is the official start to WisCon — every year on Friday at 1pm sharp!  This is the time and place to decompress from the rigors of travel, meet friends old and new, make the transition to WisCon space-time, and get into the WisCon frame of mind! Refreshments, fun activities, and relaxation all await you at the Gathering.

What happens at The Gathering?  It’s a fair full of fun, free activities.  In the past we’ve had activities like:

  • hair braiding
  • a fiber arts circle
  • a galley sale
  • paper crafts and access crafts
  • tarot readings
  • and the very popular clothing swap

We announce the slate of activities each spring toward late April.

If you’re interested in running an activity at The Gathering, please contact us at the email address at the top of the page!
