2020 marks yet another 100 year Oz milestone as of course well be celebrating the centennial of L Frank Baums last ever Oz book - Glinda of Oz. Back in 1920, as Glinda of Oz is hitting the bookshelves most Oz fans know that Ruth Plumly Thompson, was briskly, galloping and harrumphing along writing her first Oz book, paving the way for more Oz authors to come. To pay tribute to this well be honouring all of the Royal Historians that followed L. Frank Baum: Ruth Plumly Thompson, John R. Neill, Jack Snow, Rachel Cosgrove Payes, Eloise Jarvis McGraw, Lauren Lynn McGraw and beyond.
We'll shine our movie spotlight toward Walt Disney's Return to Oz, as it hits 35 years. Your ears will also be Ozzified as we explore the many years of Oz related music from 1902 Wizard of Oz extravaganza all the way through to up the most current Oz tunes, to date.
Our special guests so far include The Ravenswood Radio Players a dedicated group of actors who use some technical wizardry to bring radio plays to life. Their production will take you on a journey to Oz unlike any other you have seen before. Kiki Ebsen—daughter of Buddy Ebsen—returns and performs live for all at OzCon.
More guests to be announced soon!
This year we continue offering a variety of meals. All people staying on-site at the hotel may enjoy the full breakfast buffet (free of charge). Lunches and dinners may be purchased with a complete The Works package or a la carte. Please note that these meals must be purchased in advance of arrival! There are no stand-alone restaurants on the grounds (rather like our old con site Asilomar), though nearby restaurants are within several minutes driving range. OzCon plans to have a cool water station available all weekend.
You must make your own lodging reservations. We have a large block of rooms on hold for OzCon, but we are sure to sell-out. You can also extend your stay a day ahead or beyond the convention dates. So don’t delay in reserving your spot. And as always, you are welcome to share a room to make your stay more affordable and more fun. Kellogg-West hotel rooms include full breakfast buffet and free shuttle to and from Ontario International Airport, as well as in-room features such as daily newspaper, in-room refrigerators, coffee makers, wall mounted flat-screen HD TVs, and complimentary high-speed wireless internet access. The hotel also offers a swimming pool and spa and complimentary parking.
Join us for three full days of Ozzy fun at the 55th Annual OzCon International, as we return to Southern California for our second year at the beautiful Kellogg West Conference Center on the Cal-Poly campus in Pomona, near three major airports: Ontario, John Wayne, and LAX. Seated atop a beautiful hill, this site, with its rolling wooded hills and farm-scapes, feels almost like Oz itself!
OzCon will begin mid-morning on Friday July 10th and run thru Sunday afternoon July 12th. We will again feature multi-track programming during the day and large group events in the evening. And of course we will have our Ozzy cosplay masquerade, our wonderful Dealers Room, the Oz Club’s auction of rare Baum and Oz material, the challenging quizzes, the treasure hunt, and relaxing after-parties!
