RodCon is a convention celebrating the imagination. Nowhere else in the Cedar Valley will you find this demonstrated better than through the artists, retailers and cosplay (dressing up as a character) at this year’s convention. RodCon will host more than 50 local and regional vendors who will offer the perfect piece of artwork, literature, information or souvenir for attendees to purchase.      

And, have you heard of cosplay? It’s dressing up as your favorite character from a comic book, science fiction film or video game. Whether you’re a child or an adult, RodCon will be more fun when you come in costume. Plus, it’ll be the perfect for your participation in the costume competition (which would be great for your entire family). There are also activities for the little ones. In addition to the costume competition, they can visit the Kid Zone and create superhero crafts such as magnets, bookmarks and puppets.  

Additional entertainment includes panels and guest speakers, demonstrations, Artist Alley, pre-con events, board games and more. There’s actually more entertainment at this year’s event than we can list and we don’t want you to miss out so be sure to visit their website HERE.  
 

If you should need more ideas of Things to Do, Places to Eat & Drink and Places to Stay whil you're in Cedar Falls, call the Cedar Falls Visitor Center at 800-845-1955. Or, stop by and see us at 6510 Hudson Road on your way to the UNI campus. We're open seven days a week. 

We’d be happy to help!
