Lancaster PA’s SF and Fantasy Relaxacon!  

A Science Fiction Convention aimed at RELAXING!


Lancaster, PA's only Science Fiction & Fantasy RELAXACON. Sponsored, very loosely, by the Lancaster Science Fiction Book Group it is held in Lancaster, PA, in the heart of Amish country. Lancaster is 3 hours from NYC, 1 hour from Philadelphia, and 2 hours from Baltimore in the middle of farm land but not in the middle of nowhere. We have all the major restaurant chains plus some local places steeped in history. There are numerous wineries in the area if you fancy a bit of wine tasting and several outlet malls if you fancy a bit of shopping.

Some of you may be wondering what exactly is a relaxacon. What makes it different from other science fiction conventions?

No Programming! (Well, not much at any rate.) No dealers room, no art show, no big names.  We mean it when we say RELAXACON!

It is an excuse for SF & Fantasy fans to get together in a resort atmosphere and visit (something one rarely has time for at a regular con), swim, eat good food, sit in the hot tub, and just generally  relax!
