Official Press Release
We have opened registration for this year’s Stockton-Con. Our event this year is scheduled for August 4, 2013. We had a great crowd last year (over 4,200 attendees), and this year’s event will be downtown at the Stockton Arena, which will provide an outstanding space to utilize for this year’s event. I have attached the registration form to this email. Please note that we cannot accept online payment (not yet at least), and the form will need to be sent to the United Way offices here in Stockton with either your check, money order or credit card information. There is a two page form, with the second page just needing your signature. You will need a California Seller’s Permit. If you don’t have one, there is link on the form for the site to sign up.
This year’s rates will be $70 per 10′x10′ booth and $35 per Artist Alley/Small Press table. Fans will get into the event for $10, but they will get a discount down to $6 if they donate to St. Mary’s Dining Room or buy pre-sale tickets. Tickets for the event will go on March 1.
Once again, the goal of Stockton-Con as a non-profit organization is to bring recognition to outstanding artists in the San Joaquin Valley area – and to give attendees the chance to experience Popular Culture (Comics, Card Games, Video Games, Cards, Anime, Manga, Science Fiction, Toys, Television and Movies). It is also Stockton-Con’s intention to raise awareness and funds in conjunction with the United Way and St. Mary’s Dining Room. St. Mary’s helps provides food, along with dental and medical services to people in our area that are homeless and working poor and need that little extra help. St. Mary’s Dining Room, in conjunction with the United Way, gets 50% of every dollar that comes in from registration fees and admissions – and 100% of all money raised from our live auction items.
I will send another email closer to the event about auction items. If you’d like to make a donation now – or at least let me know of the item you’d like to donate, please drop me a line.
If you have any questions about the registration process, please let me know. If you would like to send a note letting us know you are mailing in the form and would like to be a part of Stockton-Con, that would be great.
