Herne's Con was a fan-run Robin of Sherwood con. There were two.

It is where the 1989-1990 Major Oak Awards were presented.

1990

A fan remembers: "... Son of Herne's Con in Ithaca, New York last June... it was the most enjoyable and interesting con I've been to in any fandom! All the people I met and got to talk with were extremely friendly and very knowledgeable on a huge range of subjects. I was sorry to go home at the end of the event." [1]

1991

  • also called "Son of Herne's Con"
  • May 31-June 2
  • Guests of Honor: Richard "Kip" Carpenter and Mark Ryan
  • the subject of slash came up: "These characters were created by Kip and should remain within the bounds he created. True, he does not have ownership of the legendary characters, but as they are represented in RoS, yes he does. Generously, he has given his permission for us to play in his universe as long as we remain true to what he created (he told us this at Son of Herne's Con). Therefore, a writer must tread very carefully when attributing to a character abilities that were never manifested in the show." [2]

Herne's Con: The Movie

Both cons were filmed and were available to fans for purchase.
