BURLINGTON – Quad Con will be bringing it’s cosplay, video game tournaments and other activities to the Comfort Suites Conference Center in Burlington next weekend.

Quad Con is all about coming together and enjoying different aspects of pop culture.  Video games, sci fi, role playing, comics, toys, board games, vintage magazines, posters, & more.  Join us and sell some of your items, or come in and take home some treasure from your childhood you thought was lost forever.

Every Quad Con offers a cosplay (costume) contest, video game tournaments, and each contest has the chance to win $50 Quad Con gift certificate!

Quad Con also raises money for children with heart defects.  Helping Hannah’s Heart Foundation has a Live Auction at every Quad Con.  Each item starts at just $5! These are items with retail value of $40-$100!

Join the panel discussion for those hard hitting nerd topics focusing on all things pop culture, comics, cosplay, and more.

We have MANY vendors selling pop culture collectibles from 1900 to today.

These vendors will bring everything from $1 toys to $25,000 comics (yes we have had a dealer selling the first appearance of Spider-Man at one of our shows)

Our show is family friendly, so do not hesitate in bringing the kids to the event.  Quad Con believes in bringing fans top quality entertainment without breaking the bank.  Entry is only $3!
With over 70 tables of geeky goodness – it will be a day of good times with good people.

Special Guest Doug Rice will be on site as well.  He has been a professional comic book artist (Tales of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles), animator (The Animaniacs), and is now a professor at Columbia College of the Arts.
