We have negotiated the BEST rate possible for our room block. We are offering rooms to PalmCon attendees, artists and vendors for just $99.00 a night! We have secured a sizable room block but at this incredibly low rate we expect them to sell out quickly, so act fast!
In an attempt to bring more attention to the talents of the Artists of the Comic Book Industry PalmCon has acquired the cooperation of a Premiere Art Gallery in Lake Worth. With their help, we are putting together an exhibit/sale of the works of the PalmCon family. This will highlight the talents of this industry, and give credence to the work that goes into the medium that we all love.
The exhibit/sale of the art will be held at Artisans on the Avenue, 630 Lake Avenue in downtown Lake Worth, Florida. The art will be exhibited/sold September 16th thru the 22nd. There will be a Gala Grand Opening on September 16th from 6PM – 9PM. We encourage any of the PalmCon artists and attendees to be there and help kick-off this Special Event.
Artisans on the Avenue is an Art Gallery that likes to bring the cutting edge of art to the attention of art collectors. The owners are very excited to have this medium on exhibit at their gallery, and PalmCon is happy that they have chosen our show and artists to exhibit. This is an established gallery and the owners have been doing this for 15+ years.
If you are an artist attending PalmCon 2016 and you would like to be included in this special exhibit/sale you will need to fill out a form (to be retuned no later than August 1st) and will need to deliver your work to the gallery (priced) on September 14th at 9:00 AM.

We are happy to announce Disney Legend, Ron Schneider as a special guest of PalmCon 2016! Ron is best known as Dreamfinder from the popular Journey into Imagination attraction at Walt Disney World’s EPCOT Center. His charming personality and quick wit entertained generations of Disney fans. Some of Ron’s earliest Disney work was on stage at Disneyland's Golden Horseshoe. Beyond playing Dreamfinder (with his pal Figment) in EPCOT Center Schneider also is the only actor to play the character on film. He appeared in a never released short film by Mike Jittlov, that was shot incase the Magic Journeys film wasn’t ready for the parks opening (it’s a fascinating story when told by Ron). Ron would later reprise the role of Dreamfinder on stage for the 40th anniversary of Walt Disney World in 2011.
In 2012 Ron Schneider published “Dreamer to Dreamfinder: A Life and Lessons Learned in 40 Years Behind a Name Tag”. In the fascinating book Ron talks about the ups and downs of working in the theme park business and recounts stories from Disney, Universal, and Six Flags Magic Mountain. Just recently Ron was cast to play Walt Disney in the quirky independent film “The Further Adventures of Walt’s Frozen Head”.
