Where is this? It will take place at the Clarion Inn & Event Center in Frederick, MD. We have an AMAZING discounted hotel rate for attendees and a really unique event space that we look forward to sharing with you. This is a full-service venue with restaurant & bar, as well as fun features such as a pool and indoor putt-putt course. There is plenty of free parking available to attendees, and if you manage to find time to leave the venue during the event, it’s next door to the FSK mall, giving you many options for food and shopping.

This year we have contracted to use the entire space available at the Clarion Inn (a full 3x as much space as we had last year), and we have big plans to utilize the space well, allowing everyone to enjoy the geeky pursuits that most enjoy, without being disturbed by other activities.
We’ve negotiated a block rate if you wish to stay at the venue with us! We will be opening registration for the hotel in the coming months, so stay tuned!
In fact, if you want the ultimate tabletop experience, we have a few first-come-first-served rooms that are literally right in some of the event space, so that you can walk outside your hotel room and immediately into the gaming. They open onto a balcony just above the open board gaming floor, and you could choose to open your room and/or balcony into an extended private gaming area with friends! (You will need to call the hotel directly to guarantee one of these rooms if desired.)
If you are driving to BFGcon you’ll find that it’s an easy drive. Google Maps will directly take you to the venue, and there is ample free parking for both overnight and day-guests. For guests who plan on using public transportation to reach the venue, we’ve put together some helpful information below:
