(Did you mean a Bay Area convention or an unnamed Chicago con?)
A relaxacon is a confab or convention at which there is little or no programming, but plenty of places where fans can gather and fangab and party and SMOF and engage in mental and verbal fourth-dimensional crifanac. Sometimes, there is a swimming pool.
The template was set in the 1950s at the annual Midwestcon.
