The Annual Calgary Horror Con is splattering the Wyckham House with even more haunting fun this year. “It is a two day celebration of horror that encompasses the entire scope of Horror, not just movies,” says Jeff McNair, one of the event organizers.
The event will take place on September 22 and 23, 2012 at 11 AM to 6 PM. There will be live performances from local talents, and fans will have the chance to meet famous horror personalities. To satisfy the hungers of the horror obsessed, vendors will supply the mobs with horror merchandise and horror artwork.
“In the two days, we hope everyone will have had great spooky fun and remembers that, in Calgary, Horror lives here.”
