ARTfactory will host its inaugural fandom convention, ARTfactory’s SuperCon featuring Super Art Fight on Saturday, April 27 at the ARTfactory.

SuperCon is geared to be an extraordinary all-day celebration for all ages interested in pop culture, fandoms, comics, graphic novels, cosplay, and gaming. Events include tabletop and console gameplay and a cosplay costume contest. Additionally, there will be a series of panels with topics that include group cosplay, tabletop gaming strategy, and a focus on reuse and recycling in cosplay, with additional topics coming soon. Guests are encouraged to attend in costume and participate in the cosplay contest. The day will end with a live art competition by Super Art Fight, a performance where two or more artists battle against each other with the help of quipping hosts and a “wheel of death.”

SuperCon will also include an artist alley and exhibitor gallery on the ARTfactory’s third floor in the Wind River Theater. This collection of vendors and artists will feature pop-culture merchandise including anime items, stickers, original artwork, fandom art, comic books and graphic novels, games, jewelry, handmade textiles, and original items.

For gamers, the Caton Merchant Family Gallery on the main floor will be transformed into a large game room, where several one-shot Dungeons and Dragons games and mini-sessions will be held. Other games include Magic the Gathering and Pokémon. There will also be a selection of board games on hand to enjoy in a community environment, as well as a console gaming area.

Additionally, food trucks and food vendors will be on site including The Bone, Happy Family Ranch (farm to table tacos and burgers), as well as Cupcake Mafia, Punkin Butts, and Floss King, for those looking for a little something sweet.
