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!

For a look at what you may have missed at our 2016 show, click HERE!

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!!
