I’m going to be attending NecronomiCon for the first time this year and am really excited. Any words of wisdom for a first time attendee?
Hope to see you all there!

My first time at Necronomicon too. These boards seem to be a little on the inactive side, but maybe when the stars are right, they to will rise from the abyss. I’m also looking forward to my first HPL and weird fiction/film/art convention. I figured I might as well do my first convention right, and what better place than the old master’s stomping grounds?
Hope you have a safe trip and see you there!July 14, 2019 at 3:53 pm #3911skayeParticipant
Random tips from a multiple-time attendee.
Some of the hills in Providence can be steep.
The elevators at the Biltmore can be slow and/or crowded, so budget time to get to events there accordingly.
There’s at least one room in the Biltmore (I forget the name, the closing ceremonies were held there) that gets hot, so stay hydrated.
There are two schools of thought for personal schedules at cons – one is ‘I paid good money for this, so I must fit in as much as possible.’ The other is ‘As I get older, I value sleep and sit-down meals.’ Up to you which your school is – I obviously lean towards the secondJuly 15, 2019 at 6:57 am #3912
Skaye, thanks for the advice! I also fall into the ‘As I get older, I value sleep and sit-down meals’ crowd. I’m hoping the schedule will be released soon, looking forward to planning my trip!
Hope to see you there!July 17, 2019 at 7:06 pm #3914Chris KullstroemParticipant
Hey, Jason! This will be my first time back at Necronomicon in 4 years. I’m psyched! The main thing I remember, though: bring snacks! And drinks. There were limited options if I remember correctly, and you won’t want to travel too far to get something to eat or drink because the panels are pretty much back to back. 🙂July 17, 2019 at 7:47 pm #3915
Great advice, thanks Chris! I hope you have a great time!July 21, 2019 at 10:05 am #3937
Hey all! I’m also interested in taking a walking tour of Lovecraft sites, is that something I’ll be able to sign up for through the Con or is that something offered separate? If so is there a site that I can check out and book a tour?July 21, 2019 at 12:44 pm #3939skayeParticipant
In the past, bus and walking tours have been available through the con.
Donovan Loucks has been one of the people offering tours, and has generously made a map available via his site.July 21, 2019 at 4:39 pm #3942
