4. What happened to OpusFest in 2008?
OpusFest in 2008 was cancelled for a variety of reasons. We ask that you please not listen to some of the crazy rumors out there. We had many of our staff who were working on setting up WorldCon in Denver. There were date issues that needed to be resolved. Also, the convention was purchased by a new company, Twilight Realm Media, LLC which is headed by James Nimark who has helped run Opus for the last couple of years. All these things put together just made it too difficult to organize in the short amount of time that we had for 2008. We truely apologize to our fans, guests and attendees.
5. I thought OpusFest was in May, what gives?
We found that being in May caused problems with many people who wanted to attend OpusFest. From summer festivals that have rehersals in May and June to high-school and college students who were getting ready for finals. So we felt the change to March would be in the best interest of the convention and the attendees.
6. Why does OpusFest keep changing hotels?
This is a very complicated question. OpusFest has changed hotels for multiple reasons in the past. Mainly we are working on just finding the right size and layout for the convention. Previous hotels have been too large or had weird layouts that got our attendees a bit turned around and confused (including myself). We are hoping that our new home at the Red Lion Hotel will provide a clean and easy to navigate facility that everyone can enjoy.
7. Is it ok to bring my children to OpusFest?
Absolutely, in fact we encourage it. The majority of OpusFest programming is family friendly. Should there be an event that would not be suitable for a younger audience, that information will be posted on the website as such and again in the program book.
8. Is it ok to dress up in a costume(s)? What costumes are acceptable?
Yes, please bring your costumes and feel free to parade around during the convention, and feel free to enter our costume contest on Saturday. You may be given a hall costume prize just for standing around in your costume.
Realize that OpusFest, while a private convention is held in a public place. So no full or partial nudity costumes will be allowed. When in doubt, please feel free to send us an e-mail with a picture or an acurate detailed description of the costume in question.
