Next Eurocons

    The 2020 Eurocon (FUTURICON) will be in Rijeka, Croatia.
    and will be hosted by Rikon from Friday 2nd to Sunday 4th October 2020.

    ”Rikon convention is a Croatian flagship event and the project we’ve been giving ourselves to fully for thirteen years now. Traditionally taking place on the first or second weekend of October, Rikon draws in a varied crowd, from elementary school kids (free entrance if you’re under 14 years of age!) to senior citizens, and we’re very happy and proud there’s always something for each and every one of them.”

    ”Rijeka, the coastal city in Croatia in which the annual convention Rikon has already been held twenty times, has won the prestigious title of European Capital of Culture 2020. To join in this celebration, the SF society 3. zmaj, is announcing Futuricon – Eurocon 2020.

    We’ll combine the most important things the city of Rijeka has to offer – centuries of culture, diversity, and tolerance, with a fresh glimpse into a positive future created by the people who live and breathe culture. With the support of the City and University of Rijeka, as well as other Croatian SF societies, we are confident that we will create a unique European experience for everyone.”
