Grab your sailor cap and deck shoes and come to beautiful Portland, Oregon, for a nautical Oz adventure! OzCon International, the longest running Oz event in the world, is leaving California for the very first time. Celebrate the centennial of the tenth Oz novel, Rinkitink in Oz, the 90th anniversary of The Curious Cruise of Captain Santa, the 80th anniversary of Captain Salt in Oz, and the 30th anniversary of The Ozmapolitan of Oz with a memorable weekend at the Sheraton Portland Airport Hotel.

At OzCon, fans of all aspects of Oz—books, plays, movies, games, toys, collectibles—meet to discuss their love of America’s first fairyland and its creators. Plans at this time include a cruise on the Willamette River, an exposé of the secrets John R. Neill hid in his illustrations for Rinkitink in Oz, a look at the ever-changing maps of Oz, panel discussions on various subjects, the traditional quizzes and auction, the awards banquet, a Saturday night show highlighting some of the earliest ever music of Oz, and, of course, the famous costume contest. Panels, shows, discussions, a dealers’ room, and arts and crafts are also part of the weekend’s events. Children and families are welcome because Oz is for everyone!

    My favorite Movie! Would love to share this with my son!

  18. Meredith July 5, 2016 at 1:23 pm #

    Wow. This would make my year.
    Throughout a terrifically difficult childhood, the yellowing pages of all the stories that ballooned out of the ozverse kept my imagination fed and hopeful.
    I’d pour myself into those characters and daydream waking up somewhere as strange.

  19. Tricia July 5, 2016 at 2:07 pm #

    If I win, then I will dress up! This is happening!

  20. Amanda July 6, 2016 at 9:15 pm #

  23. Karyl Carlson July 11, 2016 at 9:35 pm #

    Thank you all for your comments! Someone will win, but all the rest are more than welcome to come to the Sheraton for a day or two or three this weekend. It really is as amazing as it sounds. You’ll be surprised at how great it is to be with people who are “crazy in the same way you are”.
