Cedar Rapids Comic Con is the Midwest's most affordable comic and gaming convention.
Conventions can be incredibly expensive. Admission prices for most conventions in the Midwest range from $45-$65 (and that's just to get your foot in the door). If you've got a family of four, that means you're probably looking at spending $200 or so simply to enter the convention hall. But conventions don't have to be that way.
We believe that conventions can offer the a large number of vendors, games, speakers, artists, and attendee interaction opportunities without an equally large ticket price.
Our tickets start at just $5 and are no more than $10. Kids 12-and-under are free with paid adult admission.
We have room for 70 vendors (as opposed to the very tightly-packed 20 we had in 2015).
On top of that, we're adding a dedicated gaming room with 20 gaming tables (and we're working on an awesome gaming schedule to go along with it).
And finally, we're adding a dedicated room for speakers and sessions.
On top of the "official" areas, there will be convenience room with food (prepared by the very talented staff at the Double Tree) and drinks to purchase, There will also be a welcome area leading to the vendor, gaming, and speaker area with seating, restrooms, check-in table, and plenty of room for photo ops with your favorite caped crusader.
