We may be dreaming of spring, but today, it’s a time for wolves. We’re thrilled to announce to fans everywhere that the Tennessee-based Wildefell Wolves are returning for a second year to Con of Thrones.
Con of Thrones, the premier convention for fans of Game of Thrones, A Song of Ice and Fire, and the epic worlds of fantasy author George R. R. Martin, will take place July 17-19, 2020, at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, FL. Wildefell Wolves will bring four of their highly trained wolfdog ambassadors to the con and, joining for the first time, their trained crow, Pan. The animals will participate in photograph experiences with attendees throughout the weekend. Photograph experiences are on sale now.
Autograph and photograph experiences are also available with Game of Thrones actors Iain Glen (Ser Jorah Mormont), Anton Lesser (Qyburn), Miltos Yerolemou (Syrio Forel), and Sam Coleman (Young Hodor), not to mention Water Dancing Workshops!
Con of Thrones will host in-depth discussions about both the television and book series, Special Guest Spotlight interviews, live recordings of fan-favorite podcasts, and much more. Previous guests include Game of Thrones stars Nikolaj Coster-Waldau (Jaime Lannister), Joe Dempsie (Gendry), Jerome Flynn (Bronn), Hannah Murray (Gilly), Iwan Rheon (Ramsay Bolton), Miltos Yerolemou (Syrio Forel), Sibel Kekilli (Shae), Kate Dickie (Lysa Arryn), Esmé Bianco (Ros), Kerry Ingram (Shireen Baratheon), Aimee Richardson (Myrcella Baratheon), and Emmy Award-winning Sound Designer Paula Fairfield.
Con of Thrones is produced by Mischief Management, and we at WatchersOnTheWall are proud to be the official programming partner for Con of Thrones. We’re looking for a select number of attendees to present on their favorite subjects at the convention this year. There’s a couple weeks left before the deadline, so we’d love to see what you have in mind for a presentation, paper, panel, or workshop on a subject related to Game of Thrones or A Song of Ice and Fire. All kinds of proposals, from fun informal discussions, to creative panels, to formal academic presentations, are welcomed!
The submissions deadline is April 3, 2020. You can check out our FAQ and submit your proposal for programming at conofthrones.net/programming.
