Fiddler's Green will be a Sandman-focused convention at the Millennium Hotel, Minneapolis, 12-14 November 2004. Membership is limited to 500 paid attending members, plus convention guests and staff.

All proceeds, after the con is over and the bills are paid, will be donated to the Comic Book Legal Defense Fund.

We're planning two tracks of programming, discussing various aspects of Sandman, storytelling, myth, the creative process, and comics and other literature. There will also be readings, autograph sessions, and other special program items.

We also plan to produce a variety of events throughout the weekend. These will probably include a reading by Neil, a masquerade party (or maybe a dance?), a CBLDF benefit auction, and other fun and fascinating events.

A Note to Parents: Sandman was written for mature readers, and Fiddler's Green is a convention focused on Sandman. Program and events at Fiddler's Green will be oriented towards a mature membership; please keep this in mind when considering the attendance of young or school-age children.

There will also be a Dealers' Room including comic, book, media, and other vendors; an Art Show with both professional and amateur work on display; and a Con Suite for lounging in, with snacks and such.

The convention will produce a Souvenir Book with articles and artwork, and a Pocket Program Guide for members to carry around at the convention so they know when and where everything is.

Fiddler's Green is being organized and managed entirely by volunteers. Anyone interested in helping is welcome to contact us!
