Quinni-Con 2014: Who can say no to a FREE convention?

newquinnibigcover

As someone who enjoys going to conventions – particularly ones with smaller and therefore more intimate atmospheres – I’m always on the lookout for upcoming events. Quinni-Con caught my eye not only because it takes place in my home state of Connecticut (and on a beautiful college campus, at that), but because it’s also a free con – though they do accept donations, which will be sent to Child’s Play Charity.

In terms of the ‘what/when/where/why’: Quinni-Con is a celebration of art, film, food, music, dance, and Japanese culture. It is a two day event held on March 1 and 2, 2014 at Quinnipiac University’s York Hill Campus (305 Sherman Avenue, Hamden, CT 06518). There are many different events at the convention – everything from guest speakers to movie screenings to dances and more. The purpose of the convention is to bring people of all ages together to have a great time, make friends, and try something different!

Some of Quinni-Con’s special guests are Mike Pollock, PurpleEyesWTF, Chris Patton, Mike & Jessi, the 501st Legion, Crunk Witch, Rusty Gilligan & Jim Taylor.

I suggest checking out their website – you can even pre-register, and remember, it’s all free!
