Fandom Charities INC. presents

The Hellmouth

June 9-11, 2023

Held at Hilton LAX in Los Angeles, CA


The Hellmouth Convention is designed by fans for fans, with the aim of harnessing the power of fandom to raise money for charities while creating a fun, interactive environment for attendees.

Evoking “the center of mystical convergence” established in Buffy, the Vampire Slayer, our exciting new event name reflects the unique intimate-by-design convention model our team employs. Our event draws travelers from all over the world. Like The Hellmouth itself, “things gravitate towards it . . . that you might not find elsewhere.

What is The Hellmouth Convention?

We aim to educate while entertaining in all areas of fandom: books, comics, television, movies, animation, technology, steampunk, arts and sciences. In addition to dealers’ room and panels, there will be seminars, hands-on workshops & meetup areas on those topics.  Have fun while doing good at the same time!

Fighting For A Cause

Raising money for the Los Angeles LGBT Center,
and The Wooten Youth Center's Ron Glass Memorial Scholarship Fund.


Since 1969 the Los Angeles LGBT Center has cared for, championed, and celebrated LGBT individuals and families in Los Angeles and beyond. They are an unstoppable force in the fight against bigotry and the struggle to build a better world, a world in which LGBT people can be healthy, equal, and complete members of society.

Wooten Youth Center logo

The Ron Glass Memorial Scholarship comes from the Al Wooten Jr. Youth Center —a neighborhood approach to the revitalization and empowerment of a community in crisis. They foster a safe and nurturing environment committed to good citizenship and academic excellence by providing college and career readiness for grades 3-12. They’re making a difference for life! 

Buffy says I want you to volunteer.
