COCKTAIL RECEPTION ON THE PALMS COURT TERRACE
Immediately after the Opening Ceremonies in the main hall, join us at 6:30pm on the Palms Court Terrace for cocktails and light appetizers courtesy of The Wrath of Con! There will also be a very special musical performance by a guest, so you won't want to miss this!
UNCLE JERRY'S "CALIGULA" COCKTAIL PARTY
For those of you who attended last year, one of the highlights was the impromptu party Jerry Doyle threw in his suite. Well, last year the party may have been an impromptu one, but this year we're making it an official event. The first "official" Uncle Jerry's Caliglua Cocktail Party will begin at 9pm. The drinks will be flowing, there will be music and mingling with the celebs all night! This will be a truly intimate event where you can spend quality time with your favorite guests, and is included in the VIP and Weekend Party passes, although seperate tickets for this party may be purchased by weekend or single day pass holders.
Panels will be held throughout the day both Saturday and Sunday with all the celebrity guests in attendance at the show. There will be time for Q and A from the audience, and the actors will be signing autographs for a small fee when they are not on a panel. This is a great opportunity to get to know the actors, since we create a very non rushed fan friendly environment during the show, and we take pains to specifically invite guests that enjoy spending time with the fans and love interacting with you on a personal level. Learn about who was a practical joker on the set, listen to funny stories and hear the actors talk about their favorite episodes or favorite moment. This is a rare opportunity to gain insight and to really learn what it was like on the set of some of your favorite television shows.
The Wrath of Con "Sci-Fi Sundance" Film Fest will be also be running Friday, Saturday and Sunday, so stop by and see the latest and greatest in cutting-edge indie sci-fi filmmaking!
