About GenreCon

GenreCon is Guelph’s comic con.


GenreCon is about being passionate for something and having a desire to share your excitement and knowledge with others. GenreCon allows you to explore your interests with others.


This is a fan-run convention celebrating the four cornerstones of geek culture: Literature, Gaming, Film, and Music. GenreCon is a three day long event happening February 9-11, 2018 at the Holiday Inn Hotel & Conference Centre in Guelph, ON.


GenreCon combines the best parts of both conventions and trade shows/expos. This event brings together a community of like-minded individuals to celebrate their passions for geek culture.


Some of what GenreCon has to offer includes: Interactive discussion panels on a wide variety of topics, Board gaming, Video gaming, Karaoke, Costumers, a huge room full of vendors selling all kinds of geeky items, and late night parties. You’re not going to want to miss this!


Come get your geek on!
