Intervention is an annual event celebrating Science Fiction, Fantasy, Pop Culture, and the Art that surrounds them. Come meet the creators, actors, developers, and producers of your favorite works – and also learn about the process of how it’s all made. It’s a 3 day fandom party for nerds and geeks of all types.

"Life doesn't have to be boring. Maybe you just need an Intervention!" - Oni Hartstein, Co-Founder


Intervention 7 2016 dates

Intervention 7 will be SEPTEMBER 16-18, 2016. We will post again when registration is open.


KICKSTARTER: ‘Doctor Cardenstein’s Academy,’ from the team that brought you Interfection!

If you’ve been to Intervention, you may have seen — and even participated — in Interfection, our popular zombie tag LARP. Now Game Goons LLC is running a Kickstarter for Doctor Cardenstein’s Academy, their first-ever card game, and they need your help to make it happen!


Doctor Cardenstein’s Academy is described as “a back-stabbing card game for up to 8 players,” in which you must compete against your fellow players to build and electrify the scariest monster possible as part of your final exam at the Doctor Cardenstein Academy for Deranged Youth.

People who donate to the Kickstarter have a chance to receive a variety of game extras, including stickers, custom cards, and a special edition faux-book box. They’re 25% funded with 25 days to go, so you still have a chance to get in on the rewards!

Visit the Doctor Cardenstein’s Academy Kickstarter page to learn more and donate.


Intervention-inspired art by Mark Mandolia

We’ve been hearing amazing things about the inspiration and creativity that followed our attendees home this year! We always love it when you share your stories and creations with us after the event.

In particular, artist Mark Mandolia sent us a variety of pictures he drew during our Drink & Draw event, and has given us permission to share them with you all. All art is Sharpie on cardstock and, in Mark’s words, “provided without explanation.”







Thanks to Mark for sharing his awesome art with us! If you’d like to share some of your own, please send it along!

So how was it? Your reviews of Intervention 6!

Thanks to everyone who came out to Intervention this year! We had an amazing time thanks to our guest, staff, vendors, attendees, and enablers!

We’ll start posting photos and videos over the next few weeks showing everyone what happened while we were there — but first off, we’d like to share what some of you had to say about our event.

First up, Tai Gooden posted a review and run-down of her live-tweet over on Geeks and Cleats, where she lets her readers know that the name of the con reflects that “[T]his 3-day convention is designed to drive participants toward their positive obsession with all things geeky, entertainment, and entrepreneurial.”

Speaking of Tai, she also wrote an amazing piece for us that’s currently up over at The Mary Sue! See even more tweets, photos, and shenanigans.

We also got a look in from Joanna Campbell of Baltimore’s Mix 106.5, who interviewer showrunner Oni Hartstein about the con and what it’s all about. Have a listen here!

If you were at the event and posted a review, please post the link to our Facebook group or tweet it to us so we can share it!
