DANCON will be a celebration of creative play, for board games fans of all ages. Festival attendees will have the opportunity to select from dozens of tabletop games to play, from classic board games to hot new releases. Organized game play and tutorials will take place throughout the day, along with free play opportunities and game demonstrations.

Our friends from The Still at Ambrabev will be at the festival all day, selling fantastic easy-to-eat food. The good folks from Wilderness Trail Distillery will join the fun at 4pm with $5 cocktails. Eat, drink, and play board games!
