Pegascon in Prešov (Slovakia), 24th – 26th of February 2017

2016 has just faded away, but the new convention season is going to come – with highlights for Europe like the Eurocon in Germany and the Worldcon in Finland.
One of the early national European conventions is the PegasCon in Prešov from the 24th to the 26th of February 2017.


But, where the heck is Prešov? It is in the East of Slovakia and by the way, the third biggest city in this country.

PegasCon offers the usual mixture of fantasy, science-fiction and horror. It derives its name from the former club Pegasus, that had been active in the eighties and nineties and also organized open meeting for fans of science-fiction and fantasy. In 2013 this tradition had been revived and offered lectures on genre books and TV-shows, meetings with authors, playing games, workshops and seeing movies.
