Finncon 2020 will be postponed to 2021

Posted

We regret to announce that - due to the current situation with the Corona virus around the world - Tampere Finncon 2020 will have to be postponed until summer 2021. The theme for Tampere Finncon is time and we’ll be bending and warping time by moving the convention to 2021! The exact dates will be confirmed during spring 2020. The Guests of Honor for Finncon 2021 will be M.R.Carey, Diane Duane, Helena Waris and Vesa Sisättö.

We will be organizing a small-scale virtual Finncon on July 10-12 2020. The program for this Virtual Finncon will be organized during summer 2020, and the program team will be in touch with some of the program volunteers about this soon. The aim of the virtual Finncon is to showcase current topics in speculative fiction, in literature and other forms of media. There will also be a virtual Artists’ Alley. The Academic program of Finncon will organise at least the Fantastic paper workshop (http://finfar.org/kutsu-finfarin-fantastiseen-tekstityopajaan-2/).

More information about the teaser Finncon will be released in summer 2020.

Capital region Finncon will also be postponed

Finncon in the capital region, which was originally going to happen in 2021, will also be postponed to summer 2022. Finncon 2022 will be organized at the Aalto-university in Espoo on July 8-10, 2022.
