About Us

Turning Stone Resort & Casino will be host to SCARE-A-CON™ (formerly known as SCARE-A-CUSE) - the Northeast’s premier horror & pop culture fan convention and film festival. SCARE-ACON
features dozens of celebrities, vendors, parties and tons of fun. “This fan-based gathering will certainly be surpassing last year’s event!” says JV Johnson, event promoter, “We bringing more celebrities into town and fans will have an opportunity to meet, greet and get autographs and pictures. Everybody is welcome.”
SCARE-A-CON™ is expected to draw thousands of fans and fun-seekers, many of whom will dress as their favorite horror or sci-fi characters. “Costuming is a fun part of these events,” according to Johnson, “and the parties and socializing are more exciting because of it.” Returning this year is the SCARE-A-CON Steampunk Fashion Show. There is a celebrity VIP party scheduled for Friday night for our VIP tickets holders, as well as various
themed socializing events each night. For example, Saturday night (9/14) will feature a Zombie “Massacre-ade” Ball where zombie enthusiasts will do their worst to transform into the fiendish ghouls for a little socializing. All SCARE-A-CON attendees are invited to join this party – with or without costumes.
SCARE-A-CON™ will also host many high-profile, in-genre celebrities such as Chris Sarandon, C. Thomas Howell, Jeffrey Combs, Dee Wallace and many others. Most have never visited Syracuse, or upstate, NY before. Celebrities will be available to sign autographs and sell photos and other merchandise. “This is where collectibles, and heirlooms are generated,” says Johnson. “This may be the one and only chance to rub shoulders with some pretty cool people from movies and television.” Johnson continued,
“The celebrity line-up can be found on our website at www.scareacon.con.”
And, for collectors and hobbyists, there will be dozens of vendors on hand offering items for sale that will be hard to pass up.
SCARE-A-CON™ is a ticketed event and will feature horror, science fiction, paranormal, anime, steampunk, cosplay, and much more. For more information visit
