Hal-Con 2022 announces dates, first wave of guests | Cultural festivals | Halifax, Nova Scotia
JHal-Con’s good-time geek will return to full potential and glory in person this fall. The festival announced this week that it will hold its 2022 event October 28-30 at the Halifax Convention Centre.
Tickets go on sale tomorrow, June 24, at 7 p.m. on the Hal-Con website. But what can you expect to see at the annual gathering? So far the actor DB Woodside was named a guest (his IMDb page cites his roles as Jeff Malone on CombinationsWayne Palmer on 24 and its passage as Principal Robin Wood on buffy the vampire slayer as his most recognizable roles) – alongside yesterday’s announcement of Cary Elwes. Elwes is best known for his role as Wesley in a cult classic film The princess to be married, but his resume also includes stranger things and the Seen film franchise.
Hal-Con celebrates cosplay, comics and all things nerdy every fall in downtown Halifax. The very first Hal-Con was held in 1977 at Dalhousie University, but by the mid-1980s the event had petered out. A 2008 revival brings you the festival you love and know today, where celebrities from cult shows and comic book artists from around the world commune with cosplayers, RPG enthusiasts and more. Get all the details on this year’s event on the Hal-Con website.
