Mark those calendars! Retro Con will be back for its *5th Anniversary* show on October 14th & 15th, 2017! As always, we promise to deliver a large amount of show for a small amount of money (for both attendees AND vendors). No overblown hype, no ego, and no VIP passes. Just a fun, family-friendly atmosphere for everyone!

We’ll once again be at the Greater Philadelphia Expo Center in Oaks, PA. We’ll be in Hall C, giving us 54,000 square feet to fill with over 200 tables of toys and collectibles, plus replica tv/movie cars and props, special guests, video games, panels, costumes, raffles, contests, and much more!

Attendee Preregistration will begin in January, so keep watching this space!

Vendor spots are already available! Click HERE for details on how you can reserve a spot at the show.

Our thanks to every that attended our show in the past, and we hope to see you back in 2017!!

For those looking for something to do Saturday night after the show ends for the day, the Regal Cinemas next door to the expo center is hosting a screening of Raiders of the Lost Ark!

This retro screening is sponsored by Cheeburger Cheeburger in Oaks, PA! It is located directly next to the movie theater.

The movie start time is 8pm, which gives plenty of time after the show ends to relax for a while, grab a bite to eat, and then take in a retro classic! 

This screening is for anyone, not just Retro Con attendees, and standard ticket prices do apply.
