Shore Leave is a yearly science fiction convention held by The Star Trek Association of Towson, Inc. (STAT). It is an organization founded in 1978 by approximately ten people who shared an interest in Star Trek. A year later, they held the first Shore Leave Convention, which attracted even more Star Trek enthusiasts to their group. The club grew and as time went on the interests of the club expanded to include the promotion of not only Star Trek, but also of science fact and other areas of science fiction. Our fan-run, all volunteer staff offers a wide range of activities during the convention among them: an art show and auction, actor guests, a blood drive, science guests and programming, a masquerade contest, panel discussions, writer guests, gaming and a wide variety of programming.
Our convention will be held at the Hunt Valley Inn located in Hunt Valley, Maryland (just north of Baltimore.) Shore Leave is always looking for new and interesting Dealers for 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.
If you are new to Shore Leave and are interested in attending, please include:
