Activities and Events:
The celebrity experience is just one part of any good convention. And GalaxyCon has this in spades. Across the weekend a total of 14 events spread across three days for fans to enjoy. One of the biggest attractions each year is definitely the annual cosplay contest. This event has a five tier approach with prizes ranging from $100 to custom medals appointed by the judges.
GalaxyCon has gone above and beyond in making sure there are events for every fandom and age group. There will be areas dedicated to video games, and tabletop gaming, as well as dedicated fan group areas. For those with growing nerds out there, you can head down to the Family Zone to enjoy some wholesome fun during the day. For those searching for something a little less wholesome, why not check out some of the After Dark Events, some of which are 18+?
