For the purposes of vendor information please take note of the following:

The ParaCon takes place on Saturday from 9 Am to 5 PM and Sunday from Noon to 5 PM. During the ParaCon vendors will be set up throughout the grounds of this enormous estate. With ample parking and room for hundreds of guests there is sure to be ample foot traffic right past your table or booth. Speakers will be set up in 2 areas giving guests and vendors plenty of options to enjoy special guests throughout the day and to ensure foot traffic stays steady and spread throughout the grounds. There are 100 vendor spots available. Spots are 10 by 10. They are primarily outside. Inside options are extremely limited and mostly reserved for sponsors. As they become available we will open them to the public.

You must provide your own tent and tables. Vendor spots are $100 and cover BOTH DAYS. Vendors do NOT have to vend both days BUT have the option to do so.

. ***Please note not all the special guests will be present on both days. ***

Vendors also have the option to SPONSOR the CastleCon. Sponsorships are limited and include different perks. Sponsors enjoy the benefit of attending special guest events such as the VIP investigation Friday Night as well as the Roaring 20s Galaon Saturday night which will have a caterer, DJ and bar. Sponsors also have EXTREMELY limited spots inside the castle. Check out the sponsorship options in the add on menu.

Vendors who are specifically Psychic Readers or of this nature have the option of vending at the Psychic Fair which takes place inside the Castle during the ParaCon in a secluded area. This has been done to give guests a SPECIAL experience NEVER afforded them before at any other convention. At the fair, which is on the top floor of the castle, there will be 2 special psychic panels taking place where various mediums will be showcasing THEIR unique gifts and abilities and introducing themselves to a select few VIP patrons. Then the same guests will also be able to attend 2 GALLERY readings by 2 showcased mediums (already chosen for this event) where they MAY experience the unique phenomenon of psychic mediumship. The fair takes place between 10 AM and 2 PM at the top of the Castle and there are ONLY 75 guest tickets available. Guests will have the opportunity to book privately with these psychics and readers at this time as well. Vendors may sign up for this unique option and be part of BOTH the CastleCon and the Psychic Fair by purchasing the PSYCHIC READER ticket option. If you are this type of vendor, you may have a table set up outside at the Con AND upstairs in the castle at the Fair and may vend on both days. You may be part of 1 of 2 panels you may choose where you can showcase yourself to the guests and you may utilize your booth time at the fair upstairs in between gallery readings of others and the other panel you are not a part of to conduct private readings or to pre book them for the next day. There are ONLY 10 psychic reader vendor spots available, and these spots are $150. Psychic readers who would like to sponsor the CastleCon and Psychic Fair may choose this option as well in the add on menu.
