Upcoming Conventions & Events:  



Days of Honor- 2018: March 22-25

These 4 days are the combination of 3 separate holidays…

The FANON Holiday of the Days of Honor which is the 4 days surrounding the closest weekend to the March 23rd 1967 Airing of the TOS Episode “Errand of Mercy” which was the DEBUT of the KLINGONS

The CANON Holiday of the Day of Honor (batlhjaj) - Where a warrior evaluates his or her deeds for the past year to see whether he has been honorable or not... It is customary to serve Rokeg blood pie on this day. The traditional ceremony on the Day of Honor includes eating the heart of a sanctified targ, drinking mot'lach from the Grail of Kahless, enduring the ritual of twenty painstiks, engaging in battle with a bat'leth master, and traversing the sulfur lagoons of Gorath. (VOY: "Day of Honor") This should be the start of the DAYS OF HONOR as a day of reflection.

The BETA CANON Holiday of Empire Union Day (wo' boq'a' jaj) which is also celebrated in the 3rd month to honor the uniting of the Klingon people by Kahless. Considered to be the Klingon New year by many.

IKF INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE
AMAZICON 6 - WILMINGTON, DE

Feast of the Long Night (ram nI' tay) - Typically Dec 21
Various Dates and Locations


KlingonChristmasCarol_slide3.jpg

A winter solstice festival celebrated on the longest night of the local year (e.g. Dec. 21 on Earth).
It most likely stems from a community need to share resources during the leanest hunting season; in modern times the holiday is
marked by a large feast, exchanging of gifts and a tradition of charitable giving.

ikftrifoil.jpg

This festival is a celebration of the day IKF was FORGED into fandom with blood, sweat, and tears!

On this day (or weekend day closest to it) we celebrate our beginnings, Klingon Culture, and remember our honored dead and the contributions they made to enrich our lives!

QI'lop Festival - Oct 20-22 - Various Locations

uphp15b.jpg

- A holiday which comes in the tenth Klingon month. QI'lop celebrates the superiority of the Klingon military. Like most Klingon holidays QI'lop is celebrated with much eating and drinking, but it is also marked by a very peculiar custom, a guest brings a large dish of stuffed to'baj legs to a host's house and in return is allowed to take any non­-sacred item in the house. The actual origin of this custom is obscure.
