Shore Leave Event Information

Events will be announced as they are confirmed. Be sure to also check out this year's list of workshops and our science track.

Bunny Masquerade

Bunny in a hula outfit Bunny in a red dress Everybody likes to get dressed up, your Shore Leave Bunny is no exception! The Shore Leave Bunny masquerade will take place again this year at the Shore Leave Information table. Bring your bunny from previous years or buy a new one and make a costume for them.

And don't forget Saturday evening's Masquerade for Humans who like to get dressed up.

Temple of Trek

Returning for their 30th year, join Dr. Trekwell and The Temple of Trek Choir Sunday morning for an old fashion fannish REVIVAL. Hymns, readings from "The Book of Roddenberry" and other fun are sure to dispel the DEMON of 10 Forward and get you going for the rest of the con. The Temple will also raise money for charity.

Serving fandom and saving them from a MUNDANE existence for over 25 years, you'll have fun and be able to say. "Yes Mom, l went to services" PRAISE TREK!!

Mystery Trekkie Theater 3000

There they go again! Join us on Sunday afternoon in the Valley room as the merry band of mischief makers Peter David, Robert Greenberger, and Michael Jan Friedman close out the convention with a new installment of Mystery Trekkie Theater 3000. Which classic Trek episode will fall prey to their humor this year? Come find out, but be prepared to laugh (or at least groan) at the onstage antics of a Shore Leave tradition.

Vic's Place

Do you miss all the fun times at Vic's Place? (Sure, it was just a holosuite, but there was always something going on.) Now you can be part of it all. Sing and dance the night away at Vic's Place in Frankie & Vinnie's on Friday evening.

Sixth Annual Texas Hold-em Poker Tournament

In memory of Robbie Greenberger, we'll be holding our Sixth Annual Texas Hold-Em Tournament on the evening of Saturday, August 3, in Salon A, immediately after the Masquerade. (Tournament details and entry requirements.)

TARDIS Photo Booth

Ever want to see the sights of the universe? Make all of Time and Space your backyard and come back with the photos to prove it, all courtesy of The TARDIS Photo Booth. (NOTE: When visiting ancient Pompeii, be sure to set your alarm early on Volcano Day. Do not step on the butterfly.)
