By fans, for fans, about fans and fandom

February 2022

Los Angeles, CA USA


Escapade is a normally weekend-long convention attended and run by slash fans of many fandoms and flavors. In 2021, we are trying an online format for everyone’s safety. Whether in person or online, at Escapade fandom is personal. For us, meeting and sharing fandom is fundamental. Want some background? See our history page, or what people have to say at

Virtually Everywhere

We are still working out the shape and duration of a virtual Escapade. Our goal is to provide as much of the Escapade experience as we can:

• Shipping and slashing across a range of media
• A place to squee about your current passion
• A place to think deeply (and argue fervently) about fandom, fans, and source texts
• Fannish history
• Social/slumber party experience
• Celebrating our community

Stay tuned for updates, including how specific features of the convention will (or won’t) be converted to our online space.

Countdown to Escapade 2021


Pricing/payment depending on platform. Already paid for Escapade 31? Watch your email for updated info.

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!
