RocCon! is Rochester’s version of the popular huge events held in major cities around the globe. RocCon! is a family friendly event featuring fun and guests from the worlds of Comic Books, Sci-Fi, Anime and Gaming (video and collectible cards) . The show is the creation of a longtime fan of many things pop culture who realized in 2009 that Rochester didn’t have a “comic-con”. Year 1 was 2010 and we’ve had the show annually each September ever since.
There are many rooms filled with all kinds of programming, also known as panels. You will get a program when you arrive. We also put the program up shortly before each years convention so you can plan ahead for what you’d like to do, who to see, when to hit the food truck rodeo and plan ahead so you don’t miss a moment of the Cosplay contest in the big theatre!
You’ll go home with a special treasure from one of our 112 artists and vendors and memories to last forever!
Each room changes programming just about every hour! You’ll find all our special guests doing panels as well! That includes all our guests, actors, artists, authors, cosplayers and a variety of other people who come in to do programming for the event! It is soooooo much fun to meet your favorite guests, walk away with a picture and autograph and attend their Q&A session. (pictures and autographs are an additional fee)
The food truck rodeo is legendary! When you’ve worked up a fandom appetite head out to the side of the venue for choices from pretty much every continent!
There’s fun for ages 6 and up! So come on out for some good fandom fun at RocCon! Rochester’s Comic Con and PoP Culture Convention! It’s Rochester’s most fun event!
