Fandomonium: Come as your favorite story.

Gear up with costumes, cosplay, makeup tricks and more!

Celebrate story with JCPL at Fandomonium this fall.

During the main event, Nov. 3, 4 – 8 p.m. at the Jefferson County Fairgrounds, experience an evening of fun for all ages. You, your family and friends step into story with interactive fan workshops such as potion-making straight from the dungeons of Hogwarts, photo opportunities with droids and stormtroopers who have just stepped off the Millennium Falcon, and a cross-fandom murder mystery to save everyone’s favorite detective, Sherlock Holmes. You'll even hear from your favorite librarians as they recommend and share their own favorite books, movies and music. 

Unleash your inner Wonder Woman, channel the Caped Crusader, or magically transform into the Boy Who Lived. You could win a $100 Target gift card when you arrive in costumes and cosplay and participate in our interactive Costume Contest.

Whether you're competing in the contest or just showing up in costume for fun, please be sure to follow these guidelines for costumes and props. 

Be sure to perfect your fan-favorite Fandomonium look with these events and resources before the event:

  • Attend costume and movie makeup workshops during the month of October to learn expert tips and tricks.
  • Re-purpose your Halloween costume created with these DIY costume resources
  • Explore your fandom and find your cosplay inspiration with specially curated lists added to the website weekly.
