9am - 5pm
The CaliCON event is an annual LARP (Live Action Role Play) convention that showcases craftspeople, community leaders and creators that contribute to enhancing LARP games and immersive experiences. It features several manufacturers of handmade goods and their wares as well as local organizations and businesses relevant to immersive games and the use of foam weapons. LARPers will have a rare opportunity to discuss different aspects of LARP games and immersive events with movers and shakers.
In addition, visitors will be able to view conferences, meet fellow players, participate in activities, win Calimacil Gold, shop exclusive products and deals, and be informed of new developments in the various sectors of the immersive entertainment world. Furthermore, the Calimacil boutique located at 1150 rue Deschaillons in Sherbrooke is open for extended hours all weekend.
Attendees are encouraged (but not obliged) to come dressed as their favorite character or creature because what would a LARPing convention be without the chance to show off what we love? We hope you haven't packed your gear away for the winter just yet!CaliCON Awards - Spotlight on LARP OrganizationsSee Event on Facebook
