introducing kids' con
We are proud to announce that we are partnering with the Gulf Coast Exploreum Science Center of Mobile to bring you an amazing kids' tract during Quest-Con on October 20-22, 2017. A kids' convention for kids of all ages. Too often our children are an afterthought when it comes to conventions with kids' events often confined to one room, or even relegated to an out of the way spot. The out of the box thinkers of Quest-Con and the Exploreum are going to change this trend and reshape the way we all think of cons in the years to come.
Important: Kids' Con is not a baby sitting service! Kids' Con is an additional event during Quest-Con for you and your tiny cosplayers to enjoy together. At no time is Quest-Con, the Gulf Coast Exploreum Science Center of Mobile, or any staff present responsible to look after unattended children. We encourage you to explore Kids' Con with your children, and enjoy the wondrous attractions found within with your family as a family.
