Shindig Partners, in league with the mighty Utah Browncoats, are pleased to announce the details for Browncoat Ball 2016!
Held against the backdrop of the gorgeous Wasatch mountains, the Ball will be set in the high desert jewel of downtown Salt Lake City on August 26-28th, 2016. Dine and dance in the beautiful Canyons ballroom, relax in our hospitality suite, and and enjoy a mighty fine shindig with your fellow Browncoats from all around the ’Verse!
Saturday’s Entertainment Tracks will feature a train ride through a gorgeous mountain pass, or visiting the vistas of the highest peaks via tram. Visitors wanting a more low key day can take part in one of our city-based tracks, which offer gaming, history, 5-star Sereni-Tea, or local landmarks.
Think about extending your Browncoat Ball experience an extra day or even a week, and about what adventures your perfect vacation might hold. For instance, the most famous attraction in Salt Lake City might be Temple Square – pretty gorgeous architecture too. The outdoorsy type? Plenty of hiking and biking with bike rentals are available. Decide which trail is the best for you!
A highly unique offering of 2016’s event is that we are extending the invitation to attend a world-class Comic Con, to be held in Salt Lake City on the weekend following the Ball (Sept. 1-3rd). Salt Lake Comic Con burst onto the national stage in 2013, quickly becoming the third largest Con in North America. SLCC has consistently attracted world-class celebrities, and for our Browncoats, this year’s Firefly / Whedonverse guests (so far) are Sean Maher and Tahmoh Penikett!
Salt Lake Comic Con has consistently supported the local Browncoat community, offering us space for panels and even supporting our traditonal Con-ending event, a screening of “Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog”, which has attracted hundreds of people. At the 2015 Con, Alan Tudyk and PJ Haarsma both made a special unannounced stop at the Utah Browncoats booth on the floor of the Con, following their “Con Man” panel. Although staying for the Con isn’t an officially organized offering of the Ball, we do invite everyone to “Come for the Ball, Stay for the Con!”
