Join us for three full days of Ozzy fun at the 55th Annual OzCon International, as we return to Southern California for our second year at the beautiful Kellogg West Conference Center on the Cal-Poly campus in Pomona, near three major airports: Ontario, John Wayne, and LAX. Seated atop a beautiful hill, this site, with its rolling wooded hills and farm-scapes, feels almost like Oz itself!
Our theme is not just The Magic of Oz, featured as the centennial of this Baum favorite. Well also be celebrating the life and literature of L Frank Baum one hundred years after he crossed the shifting sands!
Our special guests so far include Kurt Raymond, master Wicked Witch of the West impressionist, Oz collector, and artist. The Singing TV Guy Mike Chamberlain will perform his concert Theres No Place Like Home, A Memory And Musical Tribute To Oz. Raymond F Wohl, an actor, playwright, and teacher, will perform his full play The Royal Historian of Oz: Stories behind the stories of L. Frank Baum, creator of the Wonderful Wizard of Oz. We also have so much more fun planned
OzCon will begin mid-morning on Friday July 26th and run thru Sunday afternoon July 28th. We will again feature multi-track programming during the day and large group events in the evening. And of course we will have our Ozzy cosplay masquerade, our wonderful Dealers Room, the Oz Clubs auction of rare Baum and Oz material, the challenging quizzes, the treasure hunt, and relaxing after-parties!
This year we continue offering a variety of meals. All people staying on-site at the hotel may enjoy the full breakfast buffet (free of charge). Lunches and dinners may be purchased with a complete The Works package or a la carte. Please note that these meals must be purchased in advance of arrival! There are no stand-alone restaurants on the grounds (rather like our old con site Asilomar), though nearby restaurants are within several minutes driving range. OzCon plans to have a cool water station available all weekend. Guests and programming are subject to change. No refunds can be issued.
