Do you like Dr. Neil deGrasse Tyson? What about Dr. Lawrence M. Krauss, or Cara Santa Maria? These and MANY more amazing speakers (seriously look, it's too many to list:!speakers/c1han) will be at Apostacon this September 19th - 21st in Omaha Nebraska, and we want to make sure all of you wonderful folks are included...we wouldn't want to have this party without you!

Here's all of your "need to know" information, but feel free to post here or on the Apostacon FB page with questions, or you can always email us at [masked]:

WHO: There are Student Tickets to both Apostacon and Tyson, General Admission Tickets to both Apostacon and Tyson, Preferred seating to Tyson, VIP Apostacon Tickets, VIP Tyson tickets, and more! ALL Apostacon tickets INCLUDE THE FRIDAY WORKSHOPS FOR FREE. WHAT: It's called a conference, but it's more like an all-weekend party with likeminded nonbelievers of all types. It's held on International Talk Like a Pirate Day weekend (on purpose) and we have a lot of fun with the Pirate theme, as well as the Flying Spaghetti Monster. Don't forget to come to the legendary costume party known as the Meat Ball!

WHEN: September 19th - 21st

WHERE: This year it is in Omaha Nebraska, and all events are held at the luxurious DoubleTree Hilton Downtown with views overlooking the city and TWO coffee shops on the main floors!

Question - Dr. Tyson is REALLY going to be there? The same one from Cosmos?
Answer - YES. He is speaking at the Friday night Evening of Scientific Inquiry. You can add this on to your Apostacon ticket package when you make your purchase. Question - HOW CAN I MEET HIM?
Answer - There will be an interactive Q&A during his talk. There is also meet and greet reception after his talk that is ticketed separately, almost sold out, and a VIP Dinner with Dr. Tyson ticket option available for those who would enjoy an intimate, very restricted access opportunity to have a nice dinner with him and only about 20 other people. Question - IS THERE CHILD CARE?
Answer - YES! We call it ApostaCamp and it's led by a licensed child care provider! On your registration form, found on the website, there is an option to include child care once you have selected your admission package. Question - I want to find people to rideshare/roomshare with, where do I go?
Answer - Great question! We have a cool FB group called Apostacon-nections where you can find other people to connect with and share arrangements that make it easier and more fun for everyone. Here's the link:

Question - How can I volunteer?
Answer - We are all volunteers, which means we can't do this awesome event without your help. Volunteers get a FREE t-shirt AND handy ApostaCash that spends at our books and merchandise store! Visit this link to sign up to volunteer now:

Question: Where does "Apostacon" come from??
Answer: Apostacon is a portmanteau of the words "apostate" and "conference", and the fact that we can all hear the word "pasta" in the middle clearly means the FSM is supportive. Who are we to argue? ;-)

Let us know if you have any questions or need more information, we are always happy to help, and we hope to see you soon :)
