Hi all!
I wanted to let you know that I am putting together a new "Weird Al" fan convention to take place in September 22nd and 23rd, 2018 in Denver, CO.
You can visit festofal.com to see more info as it becomes available. Let me know if you have questions or would like to be involved!
(I'm new on the boards but have been involved in the fandom since ~1996.)

Do you mind if I ask who the guests will be? What the schedule is? It's hard to imagine that there will be a convention happening in three days and there are no guests, no schedule posted, and registration opens "late September".

The original post says it will be September of 2018 (don't worry, I had the same initial reaction)

Haha oh ok!
Fair enough, but I'm still interested in any info about which guests are coming and what kind of activities will be going on.

Haha yes, I suppose I should bold the 2018 portion!
I'm currently working on securing guests (comedians and musicians.) The schedule will include social events such as Al Karaoke, a UHF quote-a-long, and a dance. There will be a main events room, a video/panel room, and a space for vendors.
Thanks!

Wanted to update the Fest of Al is 6 months away! We have a great headliner: The Gregory Brothers! They are well known for their work as Schmoyoho and their Songify the News series. (And you may have seen the video they did with Al during the election.)
We're going to have a lot of comedy music to see! Hope some of you can make it!
