Smofcon 38 “Cirque des Smofs”

Progress Report 0

July 10, 2022


The Cirque des Smofs will be a physical, in-person event, held at Le Centre Sheraton Montreal, 2-4 December, 2022.

The theme of Cirque des Smofs is the three-ring circus that is con-running. It’s the art of keeping enough cash on hand while organising great programming and exhibits, while also recruiting a great volunteer staff and keeping the venue happy with you and, and, and ….

We’re going to hold some online pre-event meetups, tentatively beginning in July. The first one is “How my convention (and I) adapted to the pandemic.”

Memberships are C$90, US $70, or €70PDF V. You can purchase a membership on our website (links on the front page).

If you became a member of Smofcon 38 before the date change in 2020, you are still a member and entitled to attend the event.

Speaking of email, we have become aware of a problem with the contact form on our website, and the email address it was sending to. We have fixed the problem, and our Chair is frantically trying to catch up on the backlog. We apologise to the fans who tried to reach us during this outage.

Several of us are planning to be at Chicon 8 in September. Come say hi to us there! More convention appearances will be announced shortly.

Conventions are made out of people. Smofcon 38 urgently needs you.
