CHSBB is happy to announce that the previously scheduled Siesta Fiesta, the informal gathering of fan friends to be held in San Diego in July, is now “Keeping the Dream Alive,” the official 2017 Beauty and the Beast convention! [The name “Siesta Fiesta” has been retired, and we anticipate holding a different informal gathering of fans elsewhere sometime after July 2017 and before the 2018 con.]

After consulting with fans who had anticipated coming to the informal gathering, this convention will be more casual, less structured, and provide an opportunity for just “hanging out” with old and new friends. 

Here is the pertinent information:

CONVENTION: Keeping the Dream Alive: Celebrating 30 Years of BATB Fandom

DATES:  July 14-16, 2017 [but plan to come Wednesday to Wednesday, as we’ll be offering some great opportunities for add-ons and hanging out with fellow fans!)
