CoKoCon 2018

CoKoCon is a traditional science fiction/fantasy con in Phoenix, AZ which will be held over the Labor Day weekend in 2018.

We'll be hosting guests of honor, an art show, dealers room, gaming, filk, room parties, you name it! As with all sf/f cons, the heart of the event will be our ConSuite.

The name reflects that it's the CopperCon and ConKopelli Convention, sponsored by both CASFS and WesternSFA. Phoenix phandom came together to support Westercon 70 (which was sponsored by LepreCon, Inc. in Tempe in 2017); the core players behind that convention are building on it together to move phandom phorward in 2018.

We're capping membership at 500.

Our Program Book and Pocket Program are available for free download as PDFs from our Program Book page.

We closed pre-registration on 24th August, so you can no longer purchase memberships online.
