What to do

Engage in your favorite fandoms and hobbies over the course of two days at RoberCon, which takes place within the Roberson Museum and Mansion (that’s right, we have a mansion).

If you’re looking for a convention with a lot of things to do that isn’t too crowded, RoberCon is your scene. You’ll connect with groups and other fans–no matter your passion or fandom. Accepting geeks since 2012.

RoberCon has several special guest authors and/or personalities in attendance. See them speak on a panel and get a chance to shake their hand.

Fantasy author David B. Coe (aka D.B. Jackson) will be joining the RoberCon family this year as the Guest of Honor!

He’s the author of more than 20 novels. A few of his series include… ‘The Islevale Cycle’, a time travel/epic fantasy series; the ‘Thieftaker Chronicles’, a series set in pre-Revolutionary Boston that combines elements of urban fantasy, mystery, and historical fiction; and many more.

Cosplay Contest (Sunday Only)

Costumes are highly encouraged. During the second day of the convention, there’s a cosplay contest. Show off your hard work, get recognition, win prizes!
