Cosplay/Video Game Tournament

Each event will have separate schedule.  Please see Facebook event page for prizes, times, and details of each show.

More Vending Info

We are a FREE show.  As a result we do not have a budget.  What does this mean to you?  We may not be able to accommodate your requests for electricity, wall space, or location.  Vendors - do NOT be late.  If you have not checked in 30 minutes prior to the event - you forfeit your space.  Sorry, no refunds.  We are a drama free zone.  If you are causing drama - you will be asked to leave.  If you are a vendor who does not get along with your neighbors - you will not be allowed back to our events.

We Need Your Help!

PLEASE help us get the word out!  This is as simple as sharing info about our event on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram.  Odds are if you want to go....your friends do to.  And they may need to know about the event!  So spread the word - it helps more than you know.  Here is the Facebook Page https://www.facebook.com/coolstuffquadcon/
