About this campaign

We are BOLDLY GOING WHERE NO CON HAS GONE BEFORE -- BRINGING BACK, as VERY SPECIAL GUESTS, as many of the Guests of Honor from the the first 49 years of Balticon as are willing and able to attend!

2016 is a very special year for Balticon. On Friday through Monday of (Memorial Day weekend (May 27-30, 2016,) we celebrate our 50th year of bringing together science fiction and fantasy professionals and fandom. Returning to our origins in Baltimore City, we have moved to the Renaissance Baltimore Harborplace Hotel. We will offer a dedicated Dance Hall for dance events, career development intensive seminars for SF/F professionals, free autograph signings (as always), and our usual fantastic programming. We will expand our film festival and filmmaking program.

In addition to Guest of Honor George R. R. Martin, Artist Guest of Honor John Picacio and Music Guests of Honor Bill and Gretchen Roper, and Compton Crook GoH Alexandra Duncan, the following Balticon guest of honor Alumni have accepted our invitation to be our Very Special Guests and help us celebrate our Golden Anniversary:

This list of SF/F stars includes no less than FOUR Grand Masters!

We are excited and terrified! All of this is going to cost a bundle! To get us started raising the money for this massive undertaking, we offer this unique T-Shirt. The art on the front is our Balticon 50 logo, designed by our own Artist Alley manager and long-time Balticon Art Show exhibitor Tristan Alexander. On the back of the shirt is the list of all of the Balticon Guests of Honor through the years. THIS SHIRT IS ONLY AVAILABLE THROUGH THIS FUND RAISER. It will not be sold at the convention and will not be available after the convention.

Help us to MAKE THIS HAPPEN. Buy a shirt! Buy shirts for the whole family! Wear your Balticon 50 Is Coming shirt everywhere and tell people where you got it! We're counting on you!
