Vermont Sci-Fi & Fantasy Expo: Next April

With Vermont Comic Con melted down, there’s been numerous questions for Vermont SF/F and comic fans: what will replace the event? A contender appears to be the Vermont Sci-Fi & Fantasy Expo, which will be put on by event outfit Vermont Gatherings,. It’ll be held next year on April 27th and 28th at the Champlain Valley Exposition.

The group just launched a website and Facebook Page for the convention, and describes it as an event that will host “authors, artists, gamers, cosplayers, fan organizations, comic enthusiasts, vehicle displays, prop makers, fight demos, vendors and much more.”

There’s no other details just yet, but it looks like it could easily fill the void left by VTCC, which ran for five years in Burlington and Barre. What’s more, Vermont Gatherings has a pretty good track record for these types of events, and has steadily added to their portfolio in recent years, encompassing the Vermont Renaissance Faire, the Vermont Living History & Militaria Expo, and the Vermont Steampunk Expo. Hopefully, it’ll put a priority on the local creators and groups in the area.

Vermont Gatherings isn’t the only group  eyeing the state: a Facebook page popped up for Vermont Pop-Culture Con, although no date has been announced as of yet.
