  • CON ON THE COB!!!! Oddmall: The Mother of All Marketplaces takes place at Con on the Cob (everybody screams “CON ON THE COB!!!!” whenever someone says “Con on the Cob” – it’s a thing). Anyway, according to the brochure, Con on the Cob is the universe’s most OFF THE COB tabletop gaming con, chock full of RPGs, board games, card games, party games, and all sorts of that kind of fun jazz. It’s also an art fair, with a large selection of talented artists in attendance and an amazing abundance of fantasy, science fiction, horror, and geeky art and art activities. Oh, and it’s Oddmall: The Mother of All Marketplaces, with dozens of incredible vendors showcasing a wide variety of jazz, snazz, and zazz, boosting the geekonomy like old school Robin Hoods (but without the stealing and the giving stuff away for free (ok, not like Robin Hoods. I failed analogy class in Kindergarten). It’s a magical sort of place where all people are welcome, nobody’s a nobody, and everybody is weird (just like you and me). Visit the official Con on the Cob website for more information.

  • The stalwart warriors of Aelimor will be hosting The Aelimor Fighting Pit, a brutal arena where guests of all ages can engage in fierce combat where survival is decided by their wits, skill at arms, and the incompetence of their opponent. I’m overstating the danger for the sake of drama. All weapons are safe, foam-covered, and super cool. The Aelimor Fighting Pit is located in the Atrium next to the miniature golf course.
  • TRICK OR TREAT! All the little whippersnappers, sprites, urchins, and chillunzes should come in costume and get their Trick or Treat on a bit early this year. Vendors are encouraged to keep a bowl of something tasty or interesting to hand out. Trick or treating takes place Saturday at 3pm. Just meet up with Santa in the Kid Cave so he can lead the procession, wear a costume, and say the magic words. You know what to do…

Con on the Cob is horrendously proud to host the FuMPFest Comedy Music Festival and a huge greasy blob of other phenomenal entertainment events. FumpFest features a full lineup with dozens of incredible performers throughout the convention. Other entertainment events include Karoake on the Cob, The CotC Queens of Drag, and a veritable overflowing volcano of awesome jazz I don’t have the courage to describe here.
