Renton City Comic Con

What is RenCon?

RenCon is a celebration for comic book geeks, technophiles, cosplayers and nerds of all ages! It is a place where you can buy your favorite comic book, find that collectible you have been looking for, and purchase a t-shirt that proudly displays your geekdom! It is a place to listen to the latest from leading science gurus, attend a panel on robots, listen to the making of your favorite podcast and hang out with the stars! It is a place to come dressed as you are or as your favorite comic book hero. It’s a place to learn about the craft of cosplay, enter a contest, and take a selfie with your favorite cosplayers! Mostly it is a place where anyone and everyone can come enjoy a weekend of family fun and let your inner child come out to play!

Last year’s RenCon included a two day block party in downtown Renton on Sept 16th & 17th. The event showcased the best the northwest has offer in Comi Cons. In addition to having special guests, panels, vendors, cosplay contests, a comedy show, dance parties, and a burlesque show, RenCon partnered with VR Sports to offer a unique VIP experience to kick things off the day before the show opened to regular ticket holders.

Renton Comiccon is coming back in 2018! Stay tuned for event updates.
