Come one, come all...
CarnyCon LIVE was a weekend-long fan convention held April 21 - 23, 2006 in Woodland Hills, California.
CarnyCon LIVE began Friday evening with a casual Meet & Greet Reception for the fans. Carnival treats, such as popcorn, ice cream drumsticks, corndogs, lemonade & sodas were served, and the fans had the opportunity to mingle and get to know one another in a friendly and fun-filled atmosphere. Some of our Carnivàle special guests -- Daniel Knauf, Michael J. Anderson, Amanda Aday, Clancy Brown, Debra Christofferson, Brian Turk, and Diane Salinger -- even stopped by to say hello! There was also live entertainment, including Tarot Card readings by Stacey Haines of Witch-on-Wheels, the sleight of hand/mentalist talents of Master Magician, Rich Ferguson, and a special performance by the astounding Rubber Boy, himself, Daniel Browning Smith!
Saturday was filled with Question and Answer panel sessions with members from the Carnivàle cast and crew, as well as an afternoon autograph session. We broke for a "New York Deli" lunch buffet, and in the evening we had an "American" dinner buffet (that's right -- "We got Pie!") and held a party to celebrate the show. We also showed fan-made music videos and offered some terrific items in our on-site CarnyCon auction.
Sunday began with a "Carnivàle" Writers Panel. And in the afternoon, there was an "Art of Carnivàle" panel, with several of the behind-the-scenes artisans and craftsmen -- Chrisi Karvonides, Rob Hinderstein, Roger King, and Paul Breuninger -- who made the look and feel of "Carnivàle" so spectacular.
