Been waiting for some FuMPFest news? Here's some!

What? Who?! WHERE?!!?
FuMPFest is joining forces with Con on the Cob and will be taking place in Richfield, Ohio from October 5-8.

Well, we needed a place to host The Logan Awards for 2023 so we reached out to Andy Hopp of Con on the Cob. He was more than happy to host the Logan Awards again and when we mentioned that we didn't have plans for FuMPFest yet he said "Why don't you just have FuMPFest at Con on the Cob, too?" Well, why don't we?

So we are happy to announce that FuMPFest is teaming up with Con on the Cob to bring you an even bigger, better, geekier, funnier, event. All the FuMPFest concerts will be taking place as part of Con on the Cob programming, and you will also have access to all the rest of Con on the Cob, such as their amazing dealer room, their incredible gaming area, the panels, masquerade, drag show and so much more!

And the Guest of Honor?
Our guest of honor this year is the legendary Ogden Edsl, authors of Dr. Demento's most requested song of all time, "Dead Puppies," plus "Daddy's Money" and the infamous "Kinko the Clown." Bill Frenzer and Bill Carey will be on hand to perform, answer questions, and sign autographs.

So who else is performing?
We're also happy to welcome back Worm Quartet to our line up of featured performers. You know him as "The Pac-Man Guy" from VH-1's Totally Obsessed, and the creator of synth-punk-comedy tunes like "Dear God," "C Is for Lettuce," and last year's Dr. Demento hit "Brandon."

And for the first time at FuMPFest we will be welcoming Ohio's own comedy-rock band Toby Danger into the fold. You may remember their FuMP songs "Too Fat for Rock and Roll" and "Die Hard Is a Christmas Movie, Too."

There are many more bands yet to be announced.

What about all the other stupid stuff we do?
Yes, we will have all the usual FuMPFest events such as Dumb Parody Ideas, the What The FuMP Gameshow, The Logan Awards, The FuMP Showcase, live podcasts, and more. And as usual we will be having the video contest, the raffle, FuMPFest Bingo, and all the usual idiocy you've come to expect from our little convention. Just now with corn!

And the 2021 compilation?
We are hard at work on the 2021 compilation and should have that available in the store soon. In the meantime, register for the convention using the link below and get your hotel rooms booked! And maybe get the package with the Swag Bag!

Wait, what's this about a Swag Bag?
When you register you can opt for the badge that gets you a Swag Bag! We're still working out all the details but one thing we can tell you that will definitely be in it is Volume 3 of the FuMPFest 2021 compilation! This will be the only way you can get Volume 3 which will have even more songs recorded at 2021's event. It will not be sold separately, so if you want that and all the other stuff the bag will include—like potentially an 8x10 photo you can have autographed, stickers, badge ribbons, and more—you will need to Register with the Swag Bag. A limited number of Swag Bags will be available for sale at the event, but you're going to want to register to make sure you get one.

Holy crap just sign me up already!
Register now! Buy one of the badges labeled "FuMPFest" and we get a little piece of the action which will help us out with our budget.

Where can I get more information about Con on the Cob?
From their website, of course!


Thank You for a Wonderful Event!

It's been a week and we're still getting settled into the real world after getting back from FuMPFest. But we wanted to give you an update on things. The event went beautifully! There were some minor technical glitches along the way but nothing we couldn't deal with. Several people said this was the best FuMPFest ever and we are finding it hard to disagree with them.

We need to give a big thank you to Dr. Demento for coming out to be our guest of honor again this year. And a big thank you to Sulu, Beefalo Bill, Jungle Judy, and Artie Barnes for appearing on the Sidekicks panel. Bill had some amazing photos from his days on The Dr. Demento Show which unfortunately he didn't get to share with too many people. Sulu performed two songs during the weekend, including a new tribute to Dr. Demento.

We need to thank all our performers: Bad Beth and Beyond, Bill Larkin, Carla Ulbrich, Carrie Dahlby, Ian Lockwood, Insane Ian, Nuclear Bubble Wrap, Ross Childs, Steve Goodie, The Gothsicles, the great Luke Ski, and Worm Quartet, plus Regdar and the Fighters, Soggy Potato Chips, Karl Brown, Captain Ambivalent, Brett Glass, Holy Bongwater, and the Suffock and Good Players.

Special thanks to all our volunteers who ran Registration and Table 27: Jered Perez, Ellen Macas, Kristina Winslow, Brett Krause, Doornail, and James Russell. Thanks to Chris Mezzolesta for running sound once again and Insane Ian for hosting again. And thank you to Old Spice for sanitizing the microphones between acts.

Thank you to all of our sponsors and advertisers who really helped us out this year in putting on the event, especially Demented Punk Records who donated merchandise to our raffle and sent us the new Barnes and Barnes video to premiere.

Thank you to everyone for coming and thank you for wearing masks to keep us all safe!

Congratulations to Whitney Avalon for winning the Logan Award for Outstanding Original Comedy Song and to Devo Spice for winning the other two! Thank you to everyone who participated in Dumb Parody Ideas and congratulations to Shoebox of Worm Quartet for winning the Golden Spatula! Congratulations to Jeff Morris for winning the What The FuMP game show! Finally, congratulations to Jamie & Theresa LocPort for winning the video contest for their video for "Shiny Math Rocks" by Mikey Mason.

Relive the Magic

If you missed any of the events from FuMPFest you can watch the videos of the streams on our Twitch channel. Note that Twitch only keeps the videos up for around 10 days after the initial stream, so watch them soon before they disappear.

We also updated our Archive section with a page for 2021 where you can see some photos from this year's event.

If you have any photos you would like to share with the community we would appreciate it if you shared them on our Facebook page.

What Does the Future Hold?

We don't know yet. We are currently not taking pre-orders for any future events because we don't know yet what we are going to do. Once we get the final numbers from the hotel and Table 27 we will evaluate our situation and decide from there. The hard truth is that our expenses have been going up each year and our attendance has not. Unless something changes we won't be able to continue putting on this convention. As much fun as this weekend is it's a ton of work and a money-losing venture so we can't keep doing it the way we're doing it. As soon as we know anything more specific we will let you know.

Thank you to everyone who supported us both this year and in previous years! And if nothing else, there will be a 2-CD set produced from the recordings of this year's event. So look forward to that.

Help us fill our hotel block!

There are still rooms avaialable in the block, so you can still make your reservation. Please help us reach our goal by staying in the room block.
