Escapade ONLINE 34.5

What is EscapadeCon?

Our In-Person Convention

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

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.

Escapade 34 took place in-person from Friday, March 15th through Sunday, March 17th, 2024. Be sure to check back later for Escapade 35 dates!

What is Escapade Online?

Our Virtual Convention

Escapade Online 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.

Registering for Escapade Online 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. Scholarships are available for both our in-person and virtual conventions.

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.

Escapade Online 34.5 will take place between 8 AM PDT on Saturday, July 13th, 2024 and 6 PM PDT on Sunday, July 14th, 2024! (Followed by the Dead Dog Party.)

Countdown to Escapade Online 34.5


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!

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. It has assisted dozens of attendees who might not otherwise have been able to attend Escapade, from old-time fans who faced changes in their financial status to first-time fans who knew fandom only through the web
