What is EscapadeCon?
EscapadeCon is a weekend-long convention attended and run by slash fans of many fandoms and flavors. 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 Fanlore.org.
Escapade 33 will take place at the Embassy Suites LAX NORTH March 3-5, 2023, with early check-in on Thursday, March 2. Programming runs from from 11 AM Friday through 3 PM Sunday, followed by the Dead Dog Party.

Countdown to Escapade 2023
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!
