New Year’s PartyCon

Dec 31st, 2015-Jan 1st 2016

Breinigsville, PA 18031

PartyCon is half convention, half social meetup, and 100% rockin’ New Years celebration! In addition to the New Years party essentials like live music, tasty food, drinks, and dancing, we’ve added tabletop gaming, video game tournaments, anime screenings, and of course, lots of cosplay. You’ll also be able to meet comic artists, sci-fi authors, and buy awesome merchandise from dozens of vendors. More than most geek gatherings, PartyCon emphasizes the social aspect of fandom. Maybe there’s a new board game you’re interested in, but you don’t have anyone to play it with. Play a demo match in our game room! Maybe your RPG group has broken up and moved away. Make some new friends and plot a new campaign as the balloons drop! Maybe you’re new to the area or it’s been tough to find that special someone that gets you. Kindle a new romance at one of our speed dating sessions and dance the night away! And PartyCon is family friendly, too. Mom and dad can’t find a babysitter for the holiday? Bring the kids along and let their imaginations run wild! Whether it’s Breakfast with the Superheroes or our Giant Nerf Battle, there will be plenty for them to do! So if you’re looking for a new and exciting way to kick off 2016… If the bar scene just isn’t for you… If you’re tired of getting weird looks when you hit the dance floor in your hoop dress and steam-powered parasol… …then join us at PartyCon!
