PrairieCon XLII (2023) Dates Announced!


PrairieCon is coming your way May 26-28, 2023, at the Keystone Centre.

Yes, we are back to a three-day event, and we are returning to the Keystone Centre!

Being back at the Keystone means we need far fewer volunteers to help with the garbage and cleaning up. We have gone over the feedback you sent us through the survey, and we’re working with the Keystone Centre to address the concerns and make next year’s event even better!


The Canad Inns has given us a room rate, which you can see on our website. We are also looking into one other option to offer. Stay tuned to our accommodations page on our website for info, or feel free to make your own arrangements.

Stay Tuned for more news to come!

Thanks to all of the wonderful players who participated, and to the five awesome GMs who gave their time to run the adventure. It was so cool to see everyone enjoying this scenario. And now the moment you’ve been waiting for: out of 6 teams who ventured beyond the Beanstalk, one has emerged victorious! TEAM COLIN! (well, that’s what I called them, as they didn’t have an official name, lol!). Congratulations to:

  • Colin Kennedy
  • Geoffrey Edwards
  • Ben Scott
  • Owen Bernuetz

You persevered through the encounters, overcame the obstacles, solved the puzzles, and ultimately triumphed! Congratulations guys!

We shall be in touch about your prizes, which include the miniature of the character that you played (shown here in the Comments), painted by Rick Pemkowski!

A special thank you to my awesome GMs who brought the scenario to life with such exuberance and energy:

  • Kelly Hiscock
  • Martin Schoonbaert
  • James Hood
  • Brent Allum
  • Robert Brown

FOOD at PrairieCon!

Since we’re at the Keystone centre there are a few changes with food. You will not be able to buy pizza, chips, drinks and snacks from us directly.

You are also not allowed to bring in outside food or drink.

The Keystone Centre will be operating a canteen in the lower curling lounge (the same room as our registration desk and vendor area).from 10am-10pm Saturday and 10am-4pm Sunday.

If you’re looking for restaurants nearby, there are many options right along 18th street, and really nothing in Brandon is a far drive. 🙂
