What to do

Engage in your favorite fandoms and hobbies over the course on September 26 and 27 at RoberCon, which takes place within the Roberson Museum and Mansion (that’s right, we have a fancy mansion).

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