#9 Fargo CoreCon

Fargo CoreCon

Friday, April 27 at 5:30 p.m.
The very first CoreCon in 2009 began with a super theme: Heroes vs. Villains. As we approach our tenth anniversary, it seemed appropriate to bring that theme back with CoreCon X: Return of the Heroes, Revenge of the Villains. That’s right. We’re doing the same theme twice, but now we’re doing it better. Ten years of running conventions have taught us so much about what we did wrong in the first nine years. It’s also taught us just how much we did right. The area that we have always succeeded in is making CoreCon a convention by the fans, for the fans. We will continue to do that for the next ten years and on.
