The Fully Immersive Con Experience
STAR CON GIVES FANS A CHANCE TO KICKSTART THE PARTY IN ORLANDO
Orlando, FL – Nerd Street, the Orlando-based pop culture event company, is announcing Star Con! Star Con will be a new event for fans of cosplay, fantasy, gaming, and superheroes. Star Con is coming to Orlando in September of 2020, and fans now have the chance to get in on the action early by supporting the event’s Kickstarter campaign. Joining fans at the con will be multiple celebrity guests from the worlds of TV, film, animation, comic books, cosplay, and much more.
“Star Con is a new kind of con,” said Ben Penrod, founder of Nerd Street. “It’s about what makes us a fan! It’s about being part of fan communities where we come together for shared experiences to celebrate the things we are so passionate about, and to let loose a little.”
Star Con will be a full weekend of discussion panels, meet & greets, social events, tabletop gaming, and a vendor room filled with artists and merchants selling toys, books, games, everything a pop culture-obsessed mind could think of. Of course, celebrities will be signing autographs and taking photos with fans. Even better, fans and celebrities alike will be dressed in cosplay and participating in cosplay contests! After-hours events and parties will keep fans busy even after the main events have ended for the day.
Fans are encouraged to support Star Con’s Kickstarter, which includes discounts for early supporters and multiple VIP levels, in addition to hotel stays and vendor tables. “If we surpass our Kickstarter goal, we’ll be able to expand the scope of the show and that means more guests, more panels, more of everything,” added Ben Penrod.
