GAFilk 2018 Programming

Yes, GAFilk is a relaxacon, but we have one track of enjoyable programming and several on-going events to engage your creativity and promote our Suthu'n Hospitality.

We're still working on some special logistics to keep our guests happy and healthy (and relaxed, of course). Here's our tentative programming schedule; keep in mind that it isn't set in stone yet:

New Year's Champagne Music Makers' Toast
(Somebody turn on-a the bubble machine-a...) Put on your fancy dress! We're clinking glasses and singing in the New Year. It's amazing how well we gussy up in our silks and satins, sequins and cummerbunds, top hats and tails. The champagne overfloweth, and toasting runs the gamut from traditional to hilarious.

  GAFilk Quilt Every year we hold a quilting bee at the con under the direction of multi-talented Margaret Middleton. Sewing machines and supplies will be set up outside the Registration Area, but feel free to sit in the main programming room and stitch to your heart's content. The final product is raffled off at the Interfilk Auction with proceeds going to Interfilk. Click here for more detailed information on THE Quilt.

11:00 am Dealer Room Opens  
12:00 pm Toastmaster: Cameron Webb
1:00 pm Interfilk Guest The Faithful Sidekicks
2:00 pm Guest of Honor Joey Shoji
3:00 pm - 5:30 pm 2 x 10s GAFilk's a relaxacon, so we don't schedule a lot of concerts, and there's going to be plenty of singing in the open filk. But if you've got a couple of songs, or a great story, or a piece of poetry you really want to show off, then sign up for a 2 x 10 concert slot. You can perform two songs or take up 10-minutes...which ever is shorter.
5:00 pm Dealer Room Closes  
6:00 pm Dinner Dance Banquet with entertainment provided by the GAFilk house band, Play It With Moxie! Another chance to don your fancy duds.
8:30 pm Super Secret Guest To Be Announced
9:30 pm Interfilk Auction Get out your checkbooks, folks. We've got some mighty fine "stuff" this year, including the GAFilk InterFilk Quilt.

3:00 pm Stray Dead Dog But just in case you're not ready to leave the Southland right away...GAFilk has one of the healthiest Dead Dog Parties of any filk convention anywhere, with nearly as many attendees as the Saturday night open filk.
