Oh goodness! TOPATOCON!
From the site:
SEPTEMBER 25TH – 27TH, 2015 NORTHAMPTON, MA
Announcing the first TopatoCon. We’re putting together some of
the best people in comics, podcasting, indie gaming and music.
In addition to our 70 exhibitors that we’re collecting from all over the internet, we’re going to have three programming tracks: we’ll have live podcasts, TED-style
talks about comics and culture, and premium workshops where attendees
can learn a hands-on skill. Plus! Tabletop gaming, nightly events, and more!
Watch this space for more information. In the meantime, sign up for
email updates and follow us on Twitter.
This is very good news! An event in our lovely Valley that will let you get in touch with all the wonderful creative people around here and the people they are friends with! We are pretty certain it will only take another year or two before this is bigger than the San Diego Comic-Con.
