FenCon II (2005)


A Fan-Operated Science Fiction and Fantasy Literary and Filk Convention in the Dallas/Fort Worth Area


SOLD OUT: Have you booked your hotel room yet? Our good friends at the Holiday Inn Select North Dallas have let us know that they are completely sold out for both Friday and Saturday nights! They have enough rooms to honor everybody's reservation, they swear, but they will be full. There are several area hotels with some vacancies but they are filling fast as Hurricane Rita bears down on the Lone Star State.

UPDATE: Throwing a room party? We've made arrangements with the hotel to keep all the parties together on the 5th floor and thus to keep them open all night. We must know about your party in advance! We must know by Thursday at 1:00pm! Register your room party by e-mailing your name, group name, and hotel confirmation number to our hotel liaison ( right away. When checking in, please make sure your party room is on the 5th floor!

FenCon will be held at the Holiday Inn Select® North Dallas. This centrally-located hotel is a bit northeast of the intersection of I-635/LBJ and I-35E/Stemmons. With 379 guest rooms and suites, large convention facilities, and all the amenities at very reasonable prices, we think we've found an excellent location. Plus, they offer a complimentary shuttle bus to and from D/FW Airport and within a five mile radius of the hotel.

The hotel provides free wireless broadband internet connections to guests in the rooms. This service can also be accessed in the bar area and restaurant.

Learn more at the Holiday Inn Select® North Dallas website or take a photo tour.

Reserve your room at 972-243-3363.

You must ask for the special "FenCon" rate. We have negotiated a rate of just $69 per night for one to four guests in a standard room and just $79 per night for one to four guests on the concierge floor.

"I live locally, why should I stay at the hotel?"

  • You are supporting the convention. We need to reach a certain number of 'room nights' to keep the cost of the convention space as low as possible.
  • It's safer. You don't have to worry about driving home after a long day at the con.
  • You have a place to crash during the day, a place to change outfits, and a place to store your many purchases from the dealers room.
