Shamrokon is a large fandom convention happening this August in Dublin, Ireland.
It is a special once off event, as it is the European science fiction convention (Eurocon) which is held in a different country each year, with people travelling from all over the world to attend. Shamrokon is the 36th Eurocon and the ESFS Awards presentation will take place at the convention.
Shamrokon is a 3 day event, run by scifi, horror and fantasy fans for other fans. It is not a corporate run event. While the committee are volunteers we have nearly 2 centuries of experience running events and conventions between us. This means those who sign up to attend become members and get to take part in the discussion panels, can contribute and suggest programme items they would like to see happen. We are expecting over 1,000 people to attend from 28 countries, you can see our current memberhip stats here.
Doors open at 12:00 on Friday 22nd, 09:00 on Saturday 23rd & 09:00 on Sunday 24th.
We have some wonderful Guests of Honour and we have several authors who are members and will be taking part in our discussion panels. But there is more to Shamrokon then just discussion panels; there is the art show, the trade hall and a film festival. Check out the What's On section for more.
