Like everything else, Coeur d’Con 2020 has become a fully virtual event due to COVID-19. Fans of geek culture can still “attend” the comic convention hosted by the Coeur d’Alene Public Library by participating in online games and submitting entries for fan art and costume contests. Instead of a single day, the convention is being reworked to happen over three days in August, and vendors are still selling items during the online event. Regardless of the change, Coeur d’Con is still free to all who wish to celebrate books, movies, games and more while connecting with others. Details on tabletop game sessions can also be found at the event’s Facebook page, including how to log in to a Discord chatroom that players can use to jump in and play together.
Fri, Aug. 21 to Sat, Aug. 23 from 10 am-4 pm • All ages • Free; details at facebook.com/coeurdcon
