Ohio Valley Filk Fest 36

Pegasus Awards Banquet

A line drawing of a pegasus in flight Every year, the Ohio Valley Filk Fest presents the Pegasus Awards for Excellence in Filking. The nominations are made by filkers around the world, and voting takes place between the end of the World Science Fiction Convention and OVFF each year. The final ballots are cast by OVFF attendees after the Pegasus Nominees Concert on Friday night (the first night of the convention.)

The Pegasus Awards are then presented at a banquet the following night (Saturday). Many people treat the Pegasus banquet as a semi-formal (or even formal) occasion, and it affords you the chance to see many filkers in their most elegant finery. Others come dressed in dungarees and sneakers. There is no dress code enforced or suggested.

Though children are allowed at the banquet, a free pizza party is held for them opposite the banquet, allowing parents to enjoy the banquet without the expense of purchasing the banquet tickets for their progeny.

The Pegasus Awards Banquet is not included in the price of OVFF membership. Banquet tickets must be purchased either in advance with pre-registration, or at the door. There are a limited number of seats at the banquet, and tickets are sold on a first-come/first-serve basis, so it's a good idea to get your tickets early.
