Activities
ConQuesT is a general Science Fiction Convention with several tracks of programming, a dealers room(including 6 book dealers), art show & auction, masquerade, filking, gaming, video programing, dances, autograph sessions and children's programming(not a baby sitting service). The primary focus of ConQuesT is Written SF and Fantasy. Although the Closing Ceremony is late Sunday afternoon, it will be followed by a mass BBQ run and Sunday evening will have a dance, dead dog party and other activities. Most attendees stay through Monday.
The theme of ConQuesT 28 is "We Are Family" and the Friday evening author and artists reception will be a family picnic with food and all the games that you play at a family reunion.

Benefit Auction
Once again, the ConQuesT benefit auction will raise money for a exciting project - the Science Fiction and Fantasy Hall of Fame. Over the years, the ConQuesT benefit auction has developed a reputation as one of the best and most interesting events in midwest fandom. Our scouts search the countryside for rare and unusual items-manuscripts, first editions, artwork in all media and just plain bizarre stuff. This is auction as performance-art!
The 1997 Hall of Fame inductees will be announced at ConQuesT 28. The induction will take place at the Campbell Conference Awards Ceremony on July 12 at the University of Kansas Alumni Center in Lawrence, Kansas. The 1996 inductees were A. E. van Vogt, Jack Williamson, John W. Campbell Jr. and Hugo Gernsback.
