Immersive FantasyCon takes you inside world of art
Salt Palace » First-year event includes celebrities, sentinels and dragons, oh my.

< Previous Page

The art exhibit isn’t the only departure for FantasyCon. Members of the Ballet West company will perform "A Magical Misadventure" — a ballet depicting what can happen when sorcery falls into dangerous hands — at 6 p.m. all three days of the convention.

Meeting the celebrities, viewing the paintings and most of what happens inside the Salt Palace at FantasyCon are all part of the price of admission. (Food, some autograph/photo sessions and products from vendors are the only additional costs.)

"One of the main pillars of FantasyCon is to make it affordable for everyone," Patel said. "You can’t even get into Lagoon for $40 a day.

"I want people to get lost in a world for three days. FantasyCon is an affordable stay-cation for locals and vacation for people who are not too far away."
