Con-G – Geeks@Home is a free online convention running from February 18th, 2022 to February 20th, 2022 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 a great charity.

Q: Will the content remain available after the weekend?

A: Yes.

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) and a pun on the Japanese word “kanji”. Also our dragon mascot’s name is Kon.

Q: Do you know what any of the Murder Mystery clues are for 2022?

A: I probably will!

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.

Q: How many people have attended Con-G in previous years?

A: We grew larger every year and some would say, outgrew Guelph’s convention center space completely.
2009 – 350
2010 – 530
2011 – 705
2012 – 1015
2013 – 1400
2014 – 1800

2021 – Little hard to tell how many logged in to visit – we had very healthy traffic across all our platforms through the weekend.
