Unique Conventions for February

For those with more specialized tastes, a convention can be the best way to indulge your passion and share it with other, like-minded people. Here are two great conventions coming up this month that you may just want to check out.

Potlatch - Hotel Deca - Feb 6th through Feb 8th

One of the smaller literary conventions that comes through Seattle during the year, Potlatch focuses on speculative fiction. Meet some of your favorite writers in an intimate setting, without all the fanfare of the larger cons. Best of all, when you buy stuff at the con, some of the money goes toward helping up-and-coming spec fic writers make their way toward having their own careers.

CannaCon Seattle - Pier 91 BellHarborConvention Center - Feb 19th through Feb 21st

If you’re into the cannabis scene as a grower or other type of businessman, then you’ll need to take the weekend to explore CannaCon. Meet others that share your passion, make business contacts for the future, buy quality gear and equipment and share tips about the industry. It’s not quite an industry-only event, but it can be extremely helpful if that’s your stock-and-trade.
