Greetings, my fellow Community fans! Tickets for the second fan-organized CommuniCon are now available via Kickstarter.
The first CommuniCon took place back in February 2013, and it was definitely a treat for fans. There was an excellent writers panel, a great fans vs. writers trivia contest, and plenty of cast members on hand. Lots of talented artists had their incredible Community-inspired pieces for sale, and the fine folks over at r/Hawkthorne brought their fan-built game based on the 8-bit animated episode “Digital Estate Planning.”
Dan Harmon speaks at the first CommuniCon, February 2013
And not only did Dan Harmon show up to speak to the fans and judge the costume contest, he also stayed afterwards to chat, sign autographs, and take pictures with literally everyone there. Seriously, the building was locked, the lights were off, the staff had gone home and Dan Harmon was still outside talking with fans. If you go to cons to interact with the people who create the content that you love, CommuniCon was one hell of a weekend for you.
CommuniCon 2 will be held October 19-20, 2013 at the Embassy Suites hotel in Glendale, CA. The new venue seems promising – parking/transportation at the first con, held at LA City College, was less than thrilling. You can check out the rest of our photos from the first CommuniCon here.
The costume contest winners!
