Evil Expo June 2023

On Thursday, May 18th, JM posted: 

The Evil Expo Villain Convention POSTPONED
The Evil Expo Villain Convention, scheduled to take place this summer, has been cancelled due to unforeseen circumstances. The hotel that was to host the event has refused to honor key parts of the contract, making it impossible to provide the experience that our guests deserve.
We are currently looking for a new venue that can provide the necessary facilities and amenities to make the event a success. We are aiming to reschedule the event towards the end of summer or early fall.
We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause and thank you for your understanding. We look forward to seeing you at the rescheduled event.
For more information, please contact us at

However, the most recent post on the Evil Expo Facebook page is from May 11th, announcing a new performer. No update as to postponement. 

Also as of May 22nd, the EventBrite page is still up and one can still purchase tickets: 

Please be careful out there, friends. 

**update May 23rd: there is a "report event" link on the EventBrite page where you can let them know the event is cancelled.

Mad May Market - Vendor review

Forwarded to me by a friend who had asked a vendor how Mad May Market was...


"There was zero to no traffic, most of the people I saw were staying at the camp grounds. The regulars at the bar had no idea that there was an event going on. Zero to no signage for the event. 
If they sold 100 wristbands that day, I'd be shocked."

"I feel bad, I met this one woman who traveled from Philly and paid to stay at the resort, hoping to make a profit. No one made any money." 

As per usual, if anyone else has more information about this event or others, or about Blackthorne as a venue (I'm hearing some interesting rumors currently), please feel free to comment. All comments are moderated before posting.

Philly Faire

 Quick note and something I'm keeping my eye on: Philly Faire

This is NOT the Philadelphia Renaissance Faire

It is being held at the same location. From what I have heard, there are some names attached to this new Philly Faire that are unsavory. Details have not been released yet, but please tread carefully, friends.
