Exhibitor News - Cancellations and Additions

Just a quick update - we've had a couple people have to cancel this weekend. Sadly, Ashley Gerst, Stephen Hines and Scott Hall are not going to be able to be there this Sunday.

The good news is that we've added Marc Sumerak, GeekCLE and Daniel McCloskey to the list! Though we'll miss Ashley, Stephen and Scott, there's still tons of great stuff to check out!

Be sure to check out our tumblr for more info on these and all the rest of our fine exhibitors. See you on Sunday!

Waterloo Contruction

As Genghis Con Day approaches, we wanted to let you know ahead of time that Waterloo Road, where the Beachland is located, has been under construction. It's been a long process and unfortunately it will not be finished before this Sunday. So, with that in mind, the best we can all do is just be prepared.

With that in mind, here's what the deal is: Waterloo is currently a one-way street, with the other side torn up and in the process of being rebuilt. After E 156th, all sidestreets off of Waterloo are closed until E 163rd. Luckily, the Beachland parking lot is still accessible to traffic. If the lot is full, there is more parking up the road to your right (across from E 162nd).

Beyond this, you can turn on E 163rd (signs for Waterloo detour) and try for curb-side parking on Trafalgar Ave or elsewhere in the neighborhood. The blocked sidestreets are semi-accessible from Trafalgar if you want to try for parking there. There is also a parking lot behind Arts Collinwood (on the corner of Waterloo and E 156th).

Following this detour will take you back to highway access. If you want to circle around, we recommend turning right onto E 156th from Trafalgar rather than left. If there are any problems, the number for the Beachland is (216) 383-1124.

See you soon!

Two Hand Fools join Genghis Con

Unfortunately All Dinosaurs had to cancel their Genghis Con 2013 performance. A bummer for sure, but we appreciate their support and hope to do something with them in the near future.

The good news is that we were able to get the mighty Two Hand Fools to headline the show! Two Hand Fools has a particular catchy style of heavier punk music, and their steadfast DIY ethic is something that exemplifies what Genghis Con is all about. We're proud to have them joining Uno Lady and Smoke Noises on the bill!

Also wanted to mention to check out the Genghis Con tumblr page. We'll be posting individual links to the exhibitors over there as we lead up to December 1st!
