MeggaXP V

Fresh off the success of Blood Bash 19, we are proud to officially announce MeggaXP V!

MeggaXP V will once again be coming back to the Commonwealth Commerce Center in downtown Jackson, MIchigan, will be the fifth iteration (obviously) of Michigan’s Entertainment, Gaming, Geek and Arts Experience, and is sure to once again provide mid-MIchigan with one-of-a-kind experiences that you can’t find anywhere else!

Our vendor room returns with over 40 spots booths consisting of crafters, artists, collectible dealers, and more! Booths will go on sale soon so keep checking back for the official announcements!

We pride ourselves on NOT being labeled as a “comic-con” but instead offering a completely different EXPERIENCE you can’t get anywhere else, and MeggaXP V will be no different! We are working hard on bringing you some of the craziest ideas we’ve had yet, and they’re sure to delight fans of movies, video games, cosplay, tabletop games and more!

Penguicon 2019

Penguicon is a not-for-profit, community-run convention for open source software, science fiction, music, gaming, DIY, and more. Panel topics include technology, science, eco/green, literature, costuming, food, gaming (board and video), webcomics, action/adventure, music, film, anime and an after dark event. .This is a big hang out for ALL areas of the geek/nerd community. What better way to meet people who wave the geek/nerd flag? People come to Penguicon to learn about securing their network, and also how to make their own cheese. They learn how to create chiptunes on their gameboy, and come listen to sci-fi. There is also the Maker Market which is like a dealer room except they don’t accept commodities, only thing’s people have designed themselves. If you need a place to recharge, check out the con suite which has free soda and food all week long.
Penguicon is a convention tailored mainly for adults. While kids are welcome, there are no special passes or events for them. Please keep that in mind.

Ambercon 2019

Though Amber Diceless Role-Playing has been old enough to drink for over ten years now (it has been thirty-four years since Erick Wujcik first showed ADRP), it is still going strong.

Ambercon is a broad-spectrum diceless gaming and indie gaming convention! We’ve got superheroes, musketeers, characters from various fictional settings we won’t name here due to fear of lawsuits, SOE operatives, cowboys, and, of course, Amber-based games… you name it, we’ll game it!
