Founded in 2006, TempleCon is a celebration of all things with a science fiction and retro-futurism theme, right next door to one of the coolest cities in the world, Providence, Rhode Island. While we suppose you could call TempleCon a convention, as many are quick to do, it’s a bit more than that. It’s really a three day festival of sights, sounds, tabletop games, classic arcade action, live music, and a lot more. TempleCon is also a highly social event, which means that while we’re all about the entertainment, we’re even more about the people who love it. We started TempleCon ten years ago for a lot of reasons, but one of them is because we think that things gaming and fandom need to finally be dragged out of the basement and into the ballroom. TempleCon intentionally breaks a lot of the long-standing concepts of “geek” conventions, and offers up a diverse event full of wild parties, great games, performances, guests, workshops, vendors, and a ton more stuff that we think you’ll like. In a convention circuit dominated by mega-expos focusing on getting as much cheap crap into your hands as possible, we think you may find TempleCon a breath of fresh air if you are searching for something different. Come celebrate our tenth anniversary this year with us.

May 16th-17th 2015 • MN State Fairgrounds - Grandstand, Saint Paul, MN 55109

The MSP Comicon (formerly known as SpringCon), is one of the Midwest’s largest celebrations of comic book culture, it is a unique regional nexus of graphic literature and the wildly diverse communities that fuel it, produce it, and and ultimately consume it. Given the fact that the Midwest has a long standing and somewhat inexplicable reputation of producing a disproportionate number of working comic book & graphic literature professionals, including comic book writers, artists, inkers, etc., as well as being a breeder reactor for new and independent talent, it’s no wonder that FallCon has become one of the leading comic book conventions nationwide amongst the creative community, dealers and especially amongst the fans.

A One Day Wonder of pure comic book action! Now is the time and FallCon is the place where there’s something for everyone and everyone is welcome!
