Shore Leave, A fan run Science Fiction Convention
Friday 2 PM - 8 PM
Saturday 10 AM - 7 PM
Sunday 10 AM - 5 PM
Welcome back to Shore Leave in July! Our fan-run, all volunteer staff offer a wide range of activities during the convention covering everything from an art show and auction, actor guests, a blood drive, science guests with science based tracks, a masquerade contest, panel discussions, writer guests, gaming and a wide variety of programming. Shore Leave will once again be held at the newly renovated Wyndham Grand of Hunt Valley located in Hunt Valley, Maryland (just north of Baltimore).
Shore Leave welcomes new and interesting Vendors to our Dealers Room. We are specifically looking for those who have unusual, unique, and interesting wares that are beyond the norm of what can be found in the mundane world. In addition we are inviting you to participate with other fans in activities outside the Vendors' areas. Maybe you'd like to do a demonstration of your craft? Or perhaps offering to participate in a panel discussion is more to your liking. The panels last about 55 minutes and we will cover your table for you if you'd like.
With the start of an exceptional year we are making changes to our policies and procedures. Our Vendor spots are in such a limited supply that we must seek a way to bring varied crafters together to benefit both our attendees and vendors alike.
If you are interested in attending you must email us a detailed description of what you are selling and pictures of your merchandise and/or your set-up at another event. Once your information has been reviewed our committee will make a decision on whether to extend an invitation to attend or not. If you are chosen to attend you will receive an email with further instructions. If you do not respond to that invitation email within 3 weeks we will be forced to give your space to another approved Vendor. If you are denied a space this year you will receive an email indication of non-acceptance.
Whether you attend or not, you can always advertise in our program book. Any Dealer interested in placing an ad in the Shore Leave Program Book please visit our advertising page, or contact our program book editor.
