Ogden UnCon 2019
June 7 - June 9
Ogden UnCon is Ogden’s untamed and unconventional pop culture convention. Our convention is about the attendees’ convention experience. Like you, we have attended a lot of comic cons and pop culture conventions, so we know what works and what doesn’t. Fan-based conventions should be fun, not hours in line for 3 secs of payoff.
We are only inviting celebrity guests and authors who want to meet and talk to fans. So our guests are an engaging, fun-loving group. We also want guests with unconventional messages and unique content who are not likely to have been seen before at a Utah convention.
Ogden UnCon is also interested in giving back to our community. We intend to give 10% of our regularly priced ticket sales to Ogden teachers in an effort to ease the burden they take on. Teachers often go out of pocket to put supplies in their classrooms. Changes to the income tax code have taken away their ability to claim these expenses on their taxes. Ogden UnCon intends to help set up a fund where teachers can draw funds for these expenses.
Our workshops are designed to give local artists a helping hand. Acting workshops will help actors audition for casting directors. Our author workshops will help authors with publishing, marketing, and pitching their work. Our makeup workshops are designed to help local artists learn tricks, tips, and methodology. Our contests give actors, authors, and artists a chance to get a gig in a paid production, pitch their books to actual publishers, and learn set etiquette from professionals. All of our programmings have the attendees in mind. We aren’t another cattle farm. We are all about the convention experiences.
