BizarroCon 2016 was the debut of Thicke & Vaney Books! It is held yearly at Edgefield Manor, one of the most interesting hotels in the country. It is a historical building that has been restored by McMenamins brewing company. The European style hotel has been described as a “Down the Rabbit Hole Experience,” which is a perfect place for BizarroCon and The Wonderland Book Awards. On the property, there is a brewery, winery, and distillery; there are 3 restaurants, 8 bars (including a whiskey and cigar bar), a pool hall, a movie theater, a 3-par golf course, a teahouse, a soaking pool, and a lot of surreal artwork covering the walls.
