CoKoCon will fill two panel rooms with programming throughout the convention, along with dedicated rooms for gaming, filk, workshops and other programming. A further larger room will be used for events.
Our mobile-friendly programming grid is live but won't populate for the most part until a month or two out from con.
We'll be hosting a number of special events at CoKoCon, including many that are traditional to phandom.

Apocalypse Later Roadshow
The Apocalypse Later Roadshow is a mini-film festival hosted by Hal C. F. Astell of Apocalypse Later. He'll present a curated 90 minute set of quality international short sf/f films on opening night, some of which are still working their way through the festival circuit.
The Apocalypse Later Roadshow began at LepreCon 39 in 2013 and has spread to a variety of conventions across the southwest. This may be Roadshow #41. Watch this space!
At the Movies
At the Movies is a favorite local fandom panel where you will get a sneak peak at trailers for some exciting upcoming movies. After the trailer presentation we will hold a free raffle for movie promotional material (T-shirts, baseball caps, special posters and whatever else the studios have sent us). If you like movies and like free stuff please come on in.
At the Movies has been a mainstay of the Phoenix con scene for decades, initially run by Barry Bard and, in recent years, by Len Berger.
CoKoCon will also feature a special 18+ version of At the Movies, where Len will give you a sneak peek at Red Band trailers for upcoming indie movies, with the more blood and gore the better.
Michael Senft, who runs the Sci-Fridays Book Club at the Poisoned Pen, will be leading a discussion on The Calculating Stars by Mary Robinette Kowal. Read or listen to it ahead of the event or come in blind, but beware of spoilers!
