Announcing BABSConline Season 2: BABSLab 2021, May 29–30!

The in-person version of the spaceship BABSCon may be in suspended animation while en route to its destination next April, but we weren’t about to leave you all hanging that long. So we’re going where it’s better, down where it’s wetter, under the sea. BABSConline Season 2: BABSLab 2021, will be transmitting to your personal socially-isolated underwater pod this May 29th & 30th, Memorial Day weekend.

We can’t wait to show you the sequel to BABSConline with new guests, more content, and more & better ways to interact with other unconventional conventioneers.

So, put on your bright orange jumpsuit and join us! Applications are open now for Vendors—all-ages & After Dark (18+)Panels/Events, and Musicians for our NEIGHhem concert.

Attendance, as before, is free! Just check out the BABSLab 2021 website, join our Discord server, and follow us on social media (Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, Tumblr) for further announcements.

Also, new merch is now available. Order early to ensure you’ll be dazzling in your BABSLab 2021 regalia for the event!

BABSCon Delayed Until April 15–17, 2022 Due To COVID-19 Pandemic

BABSCon Delayed Until April 15–17, 2022 Due To COVID-19 Pandemic

Well, you probably all saw this coming…

Unfortunately, thanks to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, we have to delay BABSCon once more. Our new dates are April 15–17, 2022.

But, there’s good news to go along with the bad! With effective vaccines expected to become generally available over the course of 2021, we‘re optimistic that we’ll finally be able to have an in-person convention safely by our 2022 dates.

As before, anyone with an existing registration for 2021 will have it rolled over to 2022 automatically. You won’t have to do a thing! If you do require a refund or, if you feel generous, a conversion to a spirit badge or tax-deductible donation, please fill out our refund form at r.babscon.com/refund, and we can help you with that. 

The same applies to vendors and panels/events. If we accepted your application for 2020/2021, you’ve also already been accepted for 2022, so you don’t need to do a thing. If you have further questions about vending or panels & events, email us at vendors@babscon.com or events@babscon.com.

In the meantime, we will begin making announcements for upcoming online events, Guest of Honor (re-)announcements, opening the hotel block for reservations, opening of our various applications, announcing what protocols will be in place to ensure we’ll be able to have an experience that is recognizably BABSCon while still protecting all of us from COVID-19, and more so please follow us on our various social media. (See below.)

Finally, we beg all our attendees and fans to stay safe while we all wait: stay home as much as possible, wear a mask and stay socially distanced when you absolutely must leave the house, and please get vaccinated for COVID-19 as soon as possible.

Thank you all for enduring with us and keeping the magic of friendship growing and thriving. We can’t wait until we can share our signature brand of fun with you all again. You can also register now for BABSCon 2022 here: registration.babscon.com.

You can stay in touch with BABSCon on Discord, Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, YouTube, Twitch, and Tumblr! Email info@babscon.com with any more general questions.
