Indie horror festival DEAD by CON set to kick off in Edmonton with coronavirus prevention measures

An indie festival celebrating cult horror classics is set to take place this weekend in Edmonton, with some extra safety measures in place against the spread of COVID-19.

The Edmonton DEAD by CON Horror Festival aims to bring the city’s horror fans together to meet actors from B-movie classics, buy collectibles and mingle with those who share a love of all things spooky.

This is the second year for the indie event, which kicked off last year when some like-minded fans decided Edmonton deserved its own horror convention.

“Every major city has their horror festivals… Calgary’s got a huge one, there’s a big one in Toronto… Edmonton needs one,” said Nino Barton, chief of operations for DEAD by CON.
