The Gathering

  • contact:  welcome@wiscon.net
  • Deadline for activity proposals:  April 1

The Gathering is the official start to WisCon — 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. We also share information about the convention — and you won’t want to miss the crowning of the Tiptree Award Winner!

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
  • make-and-take soft circuits
  • lock-picking lessons
  • the nail polish swap
  • button making
