After a 2-year forced hiatus the Gatecon fan convention is prepping its big return to Vancouver, British Columbia. Organizers have now announced the official dates and more than a dozen additional guests for next year’s Gatecon: The Celebration.

Gatecon features guest panels and Q&A sessions, photo and autograph opportunities, an evening banquet and (always lively) charity auction, a dealer’s room, and more.
And it’s a chance to hang out with other fans who understand your passion for Stargate! The convention draws hundreds of fans from all over the world to one of the most beautiful cities in the world — where the Stargate television franchise was filmed from 1997 to 2010.
Tickets are now on sale at four different tier levels, running from the “Nox Ticket” ($199 USD for the week) all the way up to the “Ancients Ticket,” with a front-row seat, extra bonuses, and a VIP meet-and-greet (plus autograph and photo op) with Ben Browder ($799 USD). Keeping with the theme of the Four Great Races, in between these are the Asgard Ticket ($299) and the Furling Ticket ($599).
Gatecon is sure to be the big reunion that the Stargate family needs after a 2-year pandemic and recovery. “Gatecon: Full Circle” was originally scheduled for 2019, postponed to 2020, then held as a series of online streaming events. The last in-person event was held in 2018, with a final guest list that ran over 40 actors, crew, and more.
