Super City Rochester 2019
Unlike traditional conventions, most of the activities and exhibitions will be free and open to the public, providing an opportunity for everyone to share in the fun. A true multi-verse experience; from the cosplay/costume contests and a world record attempt, to a video game demo and tournament on the dome of RMSC’s Planetarium, not to mention the “Day Of Firsts” cartoon and movie showings at The Little Theater. There will be pro wrestling, “Geek Comedy Hour” with “Super Roast” in the Valley Cadillac Building, free play video games, free inflatables to invigorate kids of all ages, vendors and food trucks on Anson Place. There’s an “Artist Alley” that will feature local artists like John Magnus Champlain & Shawn Dunwoody, as well as national guests like; Guy Gilchrest, Jim Henson’s Animator, & Danny Fingeroth, a long-time Marvel & DC writerand Spider-Man group line editor for years. Founder Jason Hilton commented on the event “Our mission is to breakout of the classic ‘con’-style event and flood the streets with pop culture enthusiasts and activities that highlight our great city, why limit the fun to a single convention center?! We want to make a little noise by trying to set the World Record for the most Cosplay & Costumed people in one area which would be over 1700. Grab your friends, family, and even your pets, get dressed up as your favorite pop culture character (or don’t) and come downtown for some super fun!” Super City Rochester is an all ages extravaganza for everyone.
