Picture it! Chicago, April 2022!

Friends, pals and confidants–get ready to laugh your way through a first-of-its-kind, weekend-long classic TV comedy fan gathering! Golden Con: Thank You For Being a Fan, will take place from April 22 to April 24 in Chicago’s historically LGBTQ+ Northalsted Neighborhood.  

Fans and Super-Fans are gathering together for a fun-filled weekend to celebrate TV’s most revered comedy with laughter, and friendship, and perhaps some cheesecake.  Events for the Fan Convention include, a “Greatest Gift” Vendor’s Market, the live parody shows from Hell in a Handbag Theater Company (http://www.handbagproductions.org);  the “Chicago: You’ve Got Style” costume parade; specially themed nightlife events; and a weekend-long battle to Grab! That! Trivia! Dough! Additional Events, Performers, and special guest appearances will be announced in the months and weeks leading up to the convention. 

Golden-Con: Thank You For Being a Fan is a TV comedy fan convention presented by Golden Fandom, LLC. Most official convention events take place at Center on Halsted, an LGBTQ community center (https://www.centeronhalsted.org). Additional events take place nearby at Sidetrack, a multi-level entertainment complex (www.sidetrackchicago.com), as well as other nightlife venues within the Northalsted and Lakeview neighborhood. 

The event organizers would love to hear from vendors, performers, and others interested in participating in producing or presenting at the event.  Inquiry emails can be sent via the “Contact Us” link.
