When Worlds Collide – World’s Faire is more than a convention, beyond a festival, and is new experience for fandoms. Our question is not “why” but “why not?” When Worlds Collide is an event that brings together the tales of the renaissance, the art of cosplay, the adventures of science fiction, the magic of sorcery, and the power of steam in one outdoor location for a weekend of fun.
