Lituanicon is the oldest annual Lithuanian festival of all things fantastic. This is the place where fandom meets fantasy and science fiction, where we embrace and celebrate the literature, movies, comics and games we love.
The event lasts one day and is filled with a great number of activities for everyone: talks by foreign and local speakers, RPG sessions, gaming (board, console and so on), competitions, a fantasy pop quiz, workshops and many others. We even have a special area for the youngest fantasy lovers, where they can play, create and listen to stories, while the parents are discussing Star Wars with other parents.
Don’t speak Lithuanian?
That is absolutely not a problem! In addition to the activities and presentations in Lithuanian, activities in English will also be available. We are going to have guests (Jill Bearup and Jörgen Städje) who will be giving presentations and participating in discussions in English. Also, most people you will encounter speak English very well, so playing boardgames in the Rikis games area, gaming in the MindZone lounge, shooting with a bow and (a safe) arrow at others or simply shopping (bring cash!) will be no trouble at all.
Where and when?
Admittance is free and we always try our best to make everyone feel included in the festival. It does not matter whether you can recite Silmarillion verbatim and own all the Magic: The Gathering cards or you simply really liked that movie with Batman – come by and check Lituanicon out. We are certain you will have a fantastic time! 🙂
This year, Lituanicon will take place on the 13th of April in Vilnius, at the College of Social Sciences (Socialinių mokslų kolegija, Kalvarijų str. 137e).
