RVR Programming


We're planning an incredible event stacked with fashion shows, a tea party, EGL trivia, games, panels, and shopping.

We will release more information about official event programming in 2020, including special guest panels and VIP events.

Applications for models and coordinate contest entrants will open in August 2020.

Check out our tentative schedule below - subject to change prior to event.

Day 1

Scavenger Hunt

Want to meet new people and make friends? Looking for a way to strike up conversation? Pick up your scavenger hunt sheet as soon as the convention opens. Complete your scavenger hunt by finding a different attendee who meets each criterion: from a given state, wearing a specific print, etc. - and have them sign their name when you find them. If you complete your sheet, you may hand it in to RVR staff at any time, and we will enter you in a raffle for a fabulous prize. We will announce the winner at the closing remarks.

Fashion Shows

All Friday and Saturday afternoon, our brands, sponsors, and special guests will show off their newest and best collections on the runway. See their looks - then head to the vendors' room to buy them!

Coord Contest - Handmade

Are you a talented sewist who regularly makes their own coords? Wear your best handmade outfit - by which we mean all main pieces (dresses, blouses, skirts, trousers, vests, etc.) must be handmade by you!

Coord Contest - Master

Are you a coordinate contest winner? Do you spend hours searching for and buying the best possible pieces? Do you love glamorous, one-of-a-kind, next-level coords? Are you the kind of person who likes to do a little casual soldering in preparation for a big event? The master coord contest is for you!

If you have ever won a coordinate contest in the past (use your best judgment) - enter the master contest, not the novice contest.
