The sixth ZodiaCon took place over May 26-29, 2016,[7] at the usual location (the Vršovská Brána hotel (formerly ŠARZ Vršov) in Horní Bradlo, near Pardubice, Czech Republic).[7]

The con had a cyberpunk theme.[7]

ZodiaCon 2017[edit]

This year, the convention's Zodiac sign will be the Libra, the Scales. As these bring to mind "the scales of justice", the convention's theme will be "roaring thirties", mafia rule and crime fighting in the 1930s.[8]

Mascots[edit]

The official banner of ZodiaCon, featuring all twelve signs.

Each ZodiaCon year has an animal mascot related to the zodiac sign representing it. The mascots are:

  • 2011: Aries ♈ - Lambert the ram
  • 2012: Taurus ♉ - Vartan the bull
  • 2013: Gemini ♊ - Castor and Pollux, the zebra twins
  • Although the logo of ZodiaCon 2014 incorporated the astrological symbol for Cancer (the crab), the convention's mascot appeared to break the zodiacal pattern of the previous years. The 2014 mascot was Jack O'Hare, a rabbit who was a "typical wild west settler".[3]
  • 2015 Leo ♌ - ?
  • 2016: Virgo ♍ - Ulrich, a cybernetic unicorn[7]
  • 2017: Libra ♎ - ?
