The vendor room has expanded to a whopping 75,000-square-foot ballroom space! That's over triple the size of our old stomping grounds (and over twice as large as last year's vendor room). Furthermore – you can expect the return of Mask-Fest, and again, instead of a 5,000 square foot ballroom (at our classic location), this new event space allows for a stunning 10,000-plus square foot ballroom - JUST FOR MASK-FEST!!! (And yes, Mask-Fest will be housed in its own separate ballroom – returning it to its show-within-a-show setting.) Our new location also allows for expanded space for the HorrorHound Film Festival and our Q&A room – as well as additional meetings space, which will allow for our largest HorrorHound Weekend event to date (expect classes and tutorials to be among our added scheduled events). We are even hosting an all-new event as part of HHW this year: "Fact or Fiction Festival" – a tribute to Cryptozoology, Aliens, and Paranormal. Think "X-Files," but for horror nerds! As part of this special addition, the legendary Bob Gimlin (Patterson/Gimlin Bigfoot) will be making his final convention appearance ever!
Celebrity guests include Rachel True, Jennifer Carpenter, Matthew Lillard, Neve Campbell, Rose McGowan, Tobin Bell, Shawnee Smith, Robin Tunney, Steven Ogg, Bonnie Aarons, Scott Patterson, Theo Rossi, Tony Cecere, David Arquette, Joseph Whipp, Malin Akerman, Dina Meyer, Elise Neal, and Paul Reubens.
Once the show ends, the party moves across the street to one of our host hotels – where we will be offering after-hour film festival screenings (well past midnight) as well as our Night Terrors concert and activities, extra nightly events, and our Horrors of Cosplay costume contest – all of which will take over an entire hotel, assuring the after-hour experience you've come to expect and enjoy with HorrorHound Weekend.
Celebrities include Neve Campbell.
