The West Coast Fan Society (WCFS) and The West Coast Science Fiction Association (WCSFA) announced today that the show will go on! WCSFA has agreed to accept stewardship of the Northwest Fan Fest convention from WCFS to ensure it will continue as the popular festival of genre media, cosplay and gaming that is has become, and will have the opportunity to grow to its fullest potential.
In the immortal words of Cameron Locke, president of WCFS, “The rumours of NWFF’s demise are greatly exaggerated!”
This year will see several smaller events hosted by WCSFA to promote all the most vital elements of NWFF and keep the heart of NWFF pumping.
“Northwest Fan Fest fills a vital niche in our community, it’s our duty to support it and help it grow,” said Chris Sturges, president of WCSFA, “We are planning a number of smaller events this year to support the community that puts on and attends NWFF.”
The events planned so far include a Walkoff-Rager event, a Games-only event, a Costume and Cosplay workshop series, and a Cosplay picnic. If you are interested in helping with these events or have an idea for a fan event, please contact the WCSFA Secretary at firstname.lastname@example.org.
