Supporting Charitable Causes: This year, the HellmouthCon continues its tradition of supporting:
 

  • Los Angeles LGBT Center: Since 1969, this center has been a force against bigotry, advocating for health, equality, and societal acceptance of LGBT individuals. lalgbtcenter.org/
     

  • Ron Glass Memorial Scholarship Fund: Part of The Al Wooten Jr. Youth Center which fosters a safe, nurturing environment for academic excellence and good citizenship, preparing youths in grades 3-12 for college and career readiness. www.wootencenter.org

Embark on a nostalgic pilgrimage around the campus, capturing memories where iconic scenes unfolded. Rub shoulders with other devoted fans and you never know, a familiar face might just make a surprise appearance, adding a sprinkle of star-dust to your magical evening.

Be part of an epoch event where fandom meets charity, echoing the spirit of unity and camaraderie that Buffy championed throughout its glorious run. Secure your entry to this mystical gateway before tickets vanish into the night.

 

So mark your calendars, summon your inner Slayer or Scooby Gang member, and make a beeline to HellmouthCon.

Buffy says "I want you to volunteer."

Food & Drink

Understanding the importance of convenient and tasty meal options, we've arranged for an excellent and affordable food truck to be with us for the entire day on campus near the lunch patio area. Whether you're craving lunch, dinner, or just soda and a snack, our on-site food truck has got you covered. They offer a nice menu filled with a variety of mouth-watering options.
Food Truck Onsite: 11:00am - 6:00pm

OKAMOTO KITCHEN MENU

You all are allowed to bring your own food and beverage to the campus, you just can't eat in the panel rooms and need to clean up after yourselves (after all, Joyce isn't here to clean up after the Scoobies).

In the Sunnydale Mall we will be selling bottled water and assorted snacks.

Keep in mind we have a lot of attendees and only the one food truck, so consider GrubHub, DoorDash, the restaurant list below, and local fast food. (Your Wristband Is Good For In and Out of Campus)

No alcohol will be sold on campus.

(Duh, it’s a high school)
