Finncon wouldn’t be Finncon without parties!
Cosmic Comic Cafe (address Kauppiaskatu 4) offers an unofficial kick-start to the con weekend on Friday 13 July. Theme realated music and other appropriately weird entertainment to parties interested will be included. (However, this function is not officially affiliated with Finncon 2018 and the location is not wheelchair accessible.) In case CCC gets too crowded, the city centre has many other interesting options, e.g. Baaribaari (Aurakatu 14), located on the other side of the market square, Panimoravintola Koulu (Eerikinkatu 18), down the road, and Portti (Hämeenkatu 7), stone’s throw away from the actual con area.
The official Finncon evening party is held on the second floor of Panimoravintola Koulu on Saturday 14 July. The definite program will be finalised nearer to the actual event but the traditional awards ceremony for the masquerade contest and the book launch party as well as other relevant shenanigans will be part of the program.
The official venue upstairs opens at 7 pm when the program starts but other sections of the restaurant are open earlier. The entrance fee to the party is nominal, and support members, volunteers and masquerade participants get free entry.
