COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) - Columbus State's Campus Nerds will host their 9th annual NerdaCon November 14-15 at Columbus State University
Attracting thousands of participants every year, NerdaCon is a student-run convention that allows gamers, anime fans, and a variety of "nerds" the opportunity to explore common interests, compete in tournaments, play popular games, and learn from like-minded skilled players throughout the community.
In 2012, NerdaCon v7 was recognized as one of the largest free conventions in the state of Georgia, attracting a diverse audience from across Georgia, the United States, and abroad.
Due to NerdaCon's expanding success, the Campus Nerds can no longer sustain growth as a free convention. As of NerdaCon v9 (2014), adults and children of all ages are invited to participate in NerdaCon's large variety of attractions for an admission of $5. Tickets can be purchased at the door beginning at 5 p.m. on Friday, Nov. 14.
This year's NerdaCon will feature costume contests, game tournaments, discussion panels, popular celebrity guests from the comic and cosplay communities, and unique merchandise from artists and vendors.
