After many years with historical themes, we now walk into the future. Star Wars, Star Trek, Star Gate, Avatar, The Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy... there are so many movies och stories from where our theme is derived.

Some places you may visit during the masquerade: The swamps of Dagobah, the forest of the Avatar's, the restaurant at the end of the world and of course the Cantina from Star Wars.

Visit the bridge of our Steam Punk Starship, find your way to different SciFi landscapes and get to meet creatures you only have met watching movies before.

Let your imagination bloom, let us trek into space, and experience the future together.


Cosplay means Costume play and is a performance art in which participants called cosplayers wear costumes and fashion accessories to represent a specific character or idea. This year we specially welcome anyone that considers him/herself a cosplayer.
