Convention Events

We are all going to have a fun and relaxing time at RushCon 2112. It's a new century and a new take on convention events (with some classic fun times thrown in as well)!

Friday Night: "In the Mood" Mixer
Get out your kimonos and silk scarves (or a nice pair of slacks and shirt) and celebrate the 30th anniversary of the album 2112, released in 1976! We'll have groovy RUSH music, funky videos on the big screen, hors d'oeuvres and a cash bar. Don't leave early or you'll miss out on prizes and surprises!

Saturday Day: Moving Pictures Matinee
Roll out of bed Saturday morning, throw on that vintage RUSH concert shirt, and saunter down to the Moving Pictures Matinee--70's TV room style! We're putting together the most, the rarest, the RUSHest of videos, movie clips, concert footage, interviews, and projecting them on a big screen! Includes Trivia games and fun prizes for your entertainment! Think you've seen it all? Don't count on it! Hungry? There will be popcorn and a cash bar if you get the munchies!

Saturday Day: Charity Auction
We are accepting donations for our very popular and very successful Charity Auction. To date, we've raised over $30,000 CND for charity. Please e-mail our Auction Coordinator with your donation!
