Hello and welcome to Amazing Adventures – Crypticon Seattle. This Travel Destination Guide is celebrating SciFi and Fantasy’s darker side. Are you traveling to the convention this year? Read on to explore and discover the amazing adventures Crypticon Seattle has to offer.
1. Crypticon Seattle is an annual event that takes place at the Double Tree Hotel in Seattle, Washington. Their website states Crypticon welcomes and supports all types of dark art. Dark Fantasy? Check! Goth? Check! Vampires? Check! Zombies? Check! Time to let your dark side fly!
2. The event usually takes place in early May of each year, but… I know, I know, when will we get back to normal. I myself think normal is overrated. The new event dates are August 27 – 29, 2021. Masks will be required in public spaces and proof of your vaccination must be available upon request. All photos courtesy of Crypticon Seattle.
