The Festival concludes with a special gala banquet, which will feature a special Dark Shadows 45th Anniversary awards ceremony, with each attendee receiving an autographed picture of Jonathan Frid.

I'll be there! My 4th Fest in 4 years. If anyone else is going, please do introduce yourselves to us! We are easy to spot because my DS buddy and condo neighbor Sue is in a wheelchair and I'll be pushing. And I'll add my name to my entry badge. ~tracy

This will be my first DS festival too. I am pretty excited. A little nervous too as I have never been to New York. Looking forward to the festival.
