Every Spring, we host our very own convention for nerds all over, but especially here in our community.

In 2020, and then 2021, MiniCon was sadly canceled so that we could protect our community. This year, the theme is “From the Depths.” This theme will be centered around the darkest parts of the ocean and the far reaches of space. MiniCon will be held on April 9th, 2022! We will open our doors at 12pm, and remain open to the public for all things MiniCon until 6pm!

Check back often for further updates on our official schedule list, as well as other things you can look forward to doing while at our MiniCon!
