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!

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.

Superior Con 2019

Superior Con is a free pop culture convention hosted by an alliance of student organizations at Northern Michigan University! If you like video games, cosplay, cartoons, comics, anime, or any other form of pop-culture art, Superior Con is the place you want to be! Superior Con ran for the first time in 2018, and was a great success. Our growth will be slow, but your organizers will strive every year to make Superior Con the best it can be. As of now, this event is headed by Northern Michigan University’s student organization, Cosplayers Unite. As long as the event is hosted on the campus of NMU, it will remain a free event. Our hopes are that one day, Superior Con will grow enough to move up to a larger venue.​
