Con-G – Geeks@Home is a free online convention running from February 9th, 2024 to February 11th, 2024 across our social media platforms, (facebook, youtube, twitter, twitch, instagram, discord). A weekend convention filled with standard convention stuff like a masquerade, panels, dealers room and other events….just online from the comfort of your home.

Con-G – Geeks@Home is an anime and geek culture convention. Some events will be live-streamed and put up to watch later, some will be prerecorded videos, some events will need attendee participation (that’s you!), but most importantly lets enjoy the weekend, relax and have fun together.

This question page will be updated as we receive inquiries from you so if you are confused about anything, feel free to contact us.

Q: Wait does this mean Con-G is back?

A: Con-G only exists as a virtual event.  It will not be running any in person conventions at this time.

Q: How does a Virtual Convention work?

A: Con-G has many social media platforms that will allow us to run events for everyone to enjoy and participate. Most events do not require signing up for anything.

Q: Do I have to pay or sign up?

A: Nope, it is a free online convention. However if you really enjoyed what we did, show us by donating on our site. We will be taking donations in support of the CMHA (Canadian Mental Health Association) National – Click HERE to donate.

Q: Will the content remain available after the weekend?

A: Yes and No. Almost all panels and events can be found on our Youtube, but there are a few interactive events that disappear after the weekend.

Q: Con-G? What does that even mean?

A: Con-G is both a short form for “Convention Guelph” (where our in-person convention was held between 2009 and 2014), or Convention Geek ,and a pun on the Japanese word “kanji”. Also our dragon mascot’s name is Kon.

Q: What is Con-G about?

A: Con-G is an anime and geek culture convention. We cover a wide range of topics and genres, including anime, science fiction, fantasy, costuming, steampunk, gaming (tabletop, card, and electronic), with a dash of zombies thrown in for good measure. We are a fan content convention so our programming is largely based on what people volunteer to do, so if there is something you’d like to see, volunteer to run something!
