Press Release

Alien Con!!!


From Alien Con—

No plans yet this Halloween?  It’s time to have the ultimate close encounter and spend it with some aliens!!

HISTORY ® is teaming up with leading event developer Cosmic Con for the 1st Annual ALIEN CON, October 28-30 in Santa Clara, CA.  Longtime fans of HISTORY ®’s Ancient Aliens (now in their 11th season), as well as curious newcomers, sci-fi buffs and pop culture enthusiasts can come down to Alien Con to meet/get autographs from some of their favorite celebrities (including Edward James Olmos, Tom Skerritt, Katee Sackhoff, Bill Mumy, Dee Wallace & Jewel Staite), writers, and comic book authors & illustrators.  In addition, the Ancient Aliens folks, including host Giorgio Tsoukalos, will be on-hand to discuss the sometimes controversial theory that extraterrestrials have visited Earth for millions of years.  Several NASA astronauts, academics and experts will also be on hand!

The immersive fest will kick off with a sold-out Halloween-themed opening night party with a costume competition, live band & celebrity guest judges!  There will also be interactive & VR experiences, panel discussions (including “Lost In Space,” “Godzilla,” “Battlestar Galactica,” “Farscape,” “Land of the Lost,” Famous Monsters, celebrity UFO encounters and several Ancient Aliens events), makeup & design workshops and cool exhibits. 

There will also be screenings, and a NEVER-BEFORE-SEEN episode of Ancient Aliens!

And HISTORY ®, Ancient Aliens and the whole Alien Con crew want to make sure the first-ever event is smart, fun & engaging entertainment for all.

Tickets are on sale now (note: we’re almost sold out!).  More info at
