Pig out on free pizza, drinks, and snacks in the Cantina, try to clock your best time running through our inflatable obstacle course and immerse yourself in the many different cultures of Tucson in our Cultural Room.

Wanna win some epic loots? Try your hand at our conference quest and secure yourself a chance to win one of three EPIC prize backpacks!

Still not convinced? We’ll have a slew of local artists and prominent authors, panels on all kinds of cool pop culture topics, a cosplay room where you can craft your own gauntlets or capes, crafting, live PvP on the green, a gamer’s den sporting everything from Playstation to Minecraft to board game, and much, much more! Don’t miss this free adventure!”

Carolyn’s note: I attended this mega, popular event last year and heard that there were over a 1000 young people enjoying the fun.  Origami will be taught by Mary Ellen Palmeri of Origami LAFF, from 1 to 3 p.m. this year. Check out the activity schedule when you arrive on July 15.  The costume contests are awesome.
