This is our end of year fundraising showcase event. Managed by Wyntercon CIO, its purpose is to raise funds for, and awareness of, our activities and workshops that run throughout the year with support from our partners and sponsors. Regarded as one of the biggest family-friendly events on the south coast, it has fast become part of the local calendar.
The event attracts thousands of people - families, cosplayers and traders. Not forgetting fantastic entertainers, actors, authors and even dinosaurs! No one's been eaten… yet, but one thing for certain you’ll find at Wyntercon is a bold and brilliant community from different backgrounds all under one roof.
Every year we run a variety of educational workshops, this year is no exception, as the workshops are confirmed we will post them on the main page of this website.
Steampunk is an inspired movement of creativity and imagination. With its backdrop of Victorian England or the wild wild west, modern technologies are re-imagined as elaborate works of art, fashion and mechanics. Come join our local Steampunkers, Have a Tea Duel, play themed games and Be Splendid!
