Community

We encourage you to join the conversation and start getting to know the terrific people you'll be hanging with in February.
Buddies

New to the con? Don’t know anyone? Don’t worry!

We have a buddy system to match people attending the con for the first or second time with TGIF/F veterans. This way, you’ll have a friendly face to sit by in panels, join for a meal, or ask questions throughout the weekend, as needed. We do our best to match buddies who have things in common that are important to you.

Having a buddy is optional but can be a great way to make new friends. We have a Buddies Meetup on Thursday night, where you’ll get to know your buddy and meet other con attendees. We’ll also host a Buddy Breakfast on Friday so you can split a bagel with your new friends and get ready for a great first day.
