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 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 three day event, run by scifi, horror and fantasy fans for other fans. It is not a corporate run event, how ever while the committee are volunteers, they have nearly two centuries of experience running events and conventions between them. 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. Over 1,000 people from 28 countries are expected.
There will be some wonderful Guests of Honour and several authors who are members and will be taking part in discussion panels. But there is more to Shamrokon then just discussion panels there is the art show, the trade hall, a film festival – check out the What’s On section for more!
