IN PERSON in Los Angeles, California
March 15-17, 2024
What is EscapadeCon?
EscapadeCon is a weekend-long convention attended and run by fans of all fandoms and flavors. You suggest the panels and content; we make it happen. We have a vidshow, dance party, meet ups, panels, and more! We’re here to hang out, talk, pimp our favorite sources/parings/groups, talk, watch stuff together, talk, share fanworks, talk, watch vids, talk… You get the picture. :)
Whether in person or online, at Escapade fandom is personal. Want some background? See our history page with links to articles, past program books, and schedules, or check out what people have to say at Fanlore.org.
Escapade 34 (March 15-17, 2024) will take place in person at Embassy Suites LAX North. Programming will run from 11 AM Friday through 3 PM Sunday, followed by the Dead Dog Party.
What is Escapade Online?
Online Escapade is where we bring the fun of Escapade to you! All the same great Escapade content, panels, vids, recs, meet ups, friends, fandom talk, etc, delivered right to you online. (Please note: the 2023 Escapade Online convention has already taken place.)
Registering for Online Escapade gives you access to panels on Zoom, to our vid show on Vimeo, to our con Discord, and to our main Discord where social events and hang outs happen all year round.
Just like in-person Escapade, panels are suggested by attendees and voted on by attendees. The panels with the top votes make it on the schedule. If you don’t want to moderate a suggested panel, we will find a panel mod to run it for you.
The only accounts that you need to attend Online Escapade are an account on our website, a Discord account, and a Zoom account. No Vimeo account is needed to access the vidshow. Links are posted on the Escapade website and emailed to registered attendees on the week of the con.
Just like in-person Escapade, we have scholarships available to people who want to attend the con but otherwise would not be able to afford to do so. Please check out our scholarship information.

Countdown to Escapade 34
Escapade has a Welcommittee!
What’s a welcommittee, you ask? It’s the fannish version of a Welcome Wagon, helping you feel at home in a new place, answering questions, holding your hand, pretty much anything you need to make your Escapade experience as good as it can be.
ride_4ever is our Welcommittee contact. You can ask her questions before the convention or if you spot her walking around the convention. Of course, everyone who is volunteering in the con suite will also be happy to help!
Panel suggestions open! Updated Covid policy. Hotel information.

Know a Fan Who Needs Assistance to Attend Escapade?
For many years, Escapade has maintained a scholarship program funded by generous attendee contributions and the con committee.
