Kingston’s preeminent festival of comics, gaming, sci-fi, fantasy, and other exciting forms of fandom returns this weekend. Join us Saturday, April 1 and Sunday, April 2. Because the Central Branch is being renovated, the bulk of the programming will be held at St. Andrew’s Presbyterian Church (130 Clergy Street East) on Saturday, with Sunday's events at Kingston Gaming Nexus and Minotaur Games and Gifts. Whether you geek out for cool demonstrations, tabletop gaming, escape rooms, interesting speakers, special children’s programming, or other fantastic activities, King Con will have something for you!
