We need all kinds of help running panel rooms, the game room, the registration desk, and much more!

Knightrokon is pleased to announce our second guest for the convention - Janet Varney! Arizona native & San Francisco refugee Janet Varney has made an indelible mark in film, television and theatre, captivating audiences and winning her fans the world over. An established writer, producer, actress and doyenne of the national comedy scene, Janet has created a unique, in-demand brand that has propelled her to the upper ranks of Hollywood.
While she might be starring in film and theater, most of you know her as the titular character from The Legend of Korra! That's right, Korra herself will be joining Jennifer Hale to continue building towards our Avatar-themed third year.
We still have more guests that we're really excited to reveal to you, so continue watching this site along with our Facebook and Twitter pages for more information on when we'll reveal our next guest!
Knightrokon is proud to partner with La Quinta for our hotel rooms this year. The La Quinta Inn & Suites UCF is a stone's throw away from campus and will be the perfect place to both gear up and wind down for the convention.

Knightrokon is proud to announce the first guest for Knightrokon's third year - Jennifer Hale! Jennifer will be a first time guest to the convention. Some of her roles include the female Commander Shepherd from Mass Effect 1 and 2, Princess Morbucks and Ms. Keane from The Powerpuff Girls, Naomi Hunter from the Metal Gear Solid series, and June and Avatar Kyoshi from The Last Airbender/Legend of Korra.
Speaking of, we promised to also announce our theme as well. If you guessed Avatar, you were correct! All of our voice acting guests have some connection to The Last Aibender or The Legend of Korra. Let the wild speculation as to who our remaining guests are begin!
While there is no specific dates for when our remaining guests will be announced, those announcements will be coming within the next few weeks, so please look forward to them!
