The nerdy event is packed with cosplay contests, gaming tournaments, panels and workshops from award-winning authors and artists, a pop culture art exhibit, vendors of all kinds and activities for geeks of all ages.

The con will be held in the civic center’s North and South Exhibit Halls, Heritage Room and Regency Room.

The con, which started in 2012, has more than quadrupled in size and became one of the most positive con experiences for artists, vendors and participants, according to the Amarillo Public Library
