There also will be an art show, charity auction, a dealers room, RPGs and LARPs, a sci-fi/fantasy/cosplay masquerade set up like a fashion show and short film screenings.
Attendance is $45. Attendees ages 7-12 are half-price and kids younger than that get in free with a paid adult admission. For more information, refer to http://www.casfs.org/cucon/. CopperCon is presented by the Central Arizona Speculative Fiction Society.
