The Saturday evening buffet dinner is back! Cash bar begins at 6:30 then the buffet will begin shortly after. After the dinner, we’ll have a short break and start the Cabaret at 8:30 pm (cash bar available outside the Cabaret beginning at 8:00 and open for the duration of the Cabaret). If you would like to attend the dinner, the cost is $25. You can purchase you dinner ticket online via our registration page.
Although we are only asking $25, you are more than welcome to contribute an additional donation to help cover the actual cost of the dinner. We are subsidizing the cost of the dinner to ensure that more folks can attend. If you know you are going to purchase a ticket, please do one of two things now – go online and buy one, or email
On Saturday afternoon, we’ll be having a Chocolate Symposium. We’re bringing back this time honored tradition whereby convention attendees gather together, bringing and sharing chocolate with other attendees. You can bring specialties from your region, or something you picked up at the nearby grocery store, or for those of you who are truly talented, bring your homemade delectables. This event is open to every attendee of Gaylaxicon. You do not need to bring chocolate to attend, but we wanted to give you a heads up that the Chocolate Symposium is back.
We are already planning for the following major events on our schedule:
Opening Ceremonies - Friday night
Meet and Greet with our Guest of Honor and other attending professionals - Friday night
Cabaret - Saturday night
Closing Ceremonies - Sunday afternoon
Movies Spectacular - Sunday night
We will also try to schedule local activities or gathering prior to and after the weekend for attendees visiting the Twin Cities.
Here is the program list that was printed in the program book. There may still be changes due to unforeseen issues after the printing deadline. Any changes will be published or posted at the registration table at Gaylaxicon.
If you are on an mobile device (iPhone/Pad, Android, etc...), or want a spreadsheet that you can copy, then you can directly access this Google Spreadsheet.
If you have any questions about the panels, please contact Joe Agee at
