Kid Kon

Jun 4, 2017

Jose and Jessica Prendes of Kid Kon talk about being fans of conventions of all kinds and that their children “are bored out of their minds.”

This needed to change.

“The goal of Kid Kon is to throw the biggest fandom party any kid has ever seen, celebrating the popular arts like comic books, movies, books, video games, and tv shows that kids are rabid fans of, and giving them a once in a lifetime chance to meet their favorite celebrities in person.”

Local children’s authors will be on site as well as dozens of businesses geared toward entertaining kids.

Chris Ayers Daily Zoo has precious, funny, silly, darling illustrations of angry owls to aghast turtles.

Alan Bruni will bring his “Rumbling Rhythms” and drums…



Kids can meet Mega Mike and Hip Hop Trooper. Debi Derryberry of Monster High appears on Sunday along with Phillip Jeanmarie of Power Rangers Wild Force. All weekend long kids can enjoy laser tag and how about some Jedi training? Saturday will have a princess party, Sunday a superhero bash, and all weekend learn how to be a ghostbuster!
