It is with deep regret that we announce the cancellation  of the Guest of Honor appearance  by Coraline Ada Ehmke. While we will miss her presence, Penguicon continues to honor Coraline’s Open Source contributions.

Regarding Midwest Media Expo

Regarding Midwest Media Expo

Our hearts go out to the attendees and management of the Midwest Media Expo for their tragic and sudden venue loss. We are in chats with MME to see if there is any way we can help out with their situation.

Please do not try to recruit their attendees or say disparaging things about the event, because truthfully, it could happen to any of us. If we’re able to assist, we will, and we will make an official statement at that time.

Consuite Staff Needed!

Consuite Staff Needed!

Hello, Penguicon attendee’s, new and veteran.

 My name is Dan Eckerd and I am the 2017 Head of Hospitality for Penguicon. I am looking to fill staff positions in the Consuite this year. As staff you schedule your hours (minimum of 8) you’ll be working in the consuite. This means you can go to panels, parties, or anything else – plus work the consuite and help out! Duties can include cleaning up, restocking food/snacks, aiding with flow of traffic, and serving beer (must be of age).

Come, Meet, Greet, and Interact with Penguicon Attendees.

Whether you have worked the consuite for years or this is your first con, I would like to work with you this year in Consuite.

If you have further questions you can email me at interested parties should email the following info: First and last name, Email address, and Cell number so you can be registered as staff. Did I mention Staff gets a reduced badge registration rate? $25.00!


Thank you and see you at Penguicon!

Dan Eckerd
