Utah Browncoats at FanX 18!

Calling all Mudders! Fire up that port compression coil and get ready to land on scenic Higgins' Moon! The Utah Browncoats are bringing their iconic themed booth to Salt Lake FanX once again, and this time you'll get a chance to visit the Hero of Canton! Find a good middleman or just gaze in wonder at the most improbable monument in the 'Verse.

 The Utah Browncoats will be in Booth #2531 on all three days of the con! 
 Visit our Facebook event here for all the updated information!

Of course, we can't mention the con without confirming that our signature event will be held so -

 Fans of the Whedonverse will tell you that the BEST way to end the con at FanX is to join 900+ other fanatics in a sing-along!

The Utah Browncoats have hosted this event at every con, and it is coming back again! It's a Brand New Day when we host our prize giveaway and yell, sing, scream and groan along to Joss Whedon's cult classic. Event tickets are just $2 at our booth or from one of our roving ticket-sellers.

 This Can't Stop The Serenity event will benefit two worthy charities. Equality Now will receive 75% of the ticket and prize proceeds. This is an event to benefit Best Friends! 25% of proceeds will be donated to Best Friends Animal Society.

 The Facebook event is here for your subscribing pleasure

Help Sponsor the Sereni-Tree

In 2015 the Utah Browncoats helped to sponsor a Firefly/Serenity themed tree at the annual Festival of Trees fundraiser for the Primary Children's Hospital. We are pleased to announce that we will be sponsoring an even bigger and better tree for the 2018 season! Although this is the event for the get-together for assembling and decorating the Sereni-Tree, we will be accepting donations and items for the tree throughout the fall season. If you would like to contribute or donate, please join in the discussion on our Facebook group here! You don't have to be in the area to do so, you can donate items via mail. 

Please read below for the items you can donate: 

Funds can be donated via Paypal using the button below, or at our booth at FanX Convention. 

The Tree - We need a 7.5' pre-lit artificial tree

Tree Decorations - Firefly or Serenity or In-'Verse themed items only. Decorations for the tree MUST be able to be attached via wire. Decorations must not be flammable (such as straw or dried flowers). You can use commercially available decorations (such as from Hallmark or QmX) or can be handmade.

Tree Skirt - We need a great themed tree skirt! Contact us if you have an idea for this item. 

Tree Topper - Something light and amazing for the top of the tree to catch attention and make the future owner proud! 

Tree Surrounds - extras - These could be any decor that sit on the floor near or around the tree and enhance the look and theme. Blue sun crates? The Train-Job themed toy train? Let your imagination soar.
