Become a Business Sponsor

Black Hills Con is a non-profit organization bringing a brand new fan convention coming to Rapid City. We welcome fans of all ages and interests to join us on October 26th, 2019 from 10 AM to 10 PM at the Central States Fairgrounds Fine Arts building for the first ever Black Hills Con event, The Prequel.  This one day event is intended to help strengthen the bonds within our community by providing a place for fans to share their interests in a safe, welcoming place they can call home. This event will also serve as a fundraiser and stepping stone towards a 3-day event aimed to start summer of 2020.

What should I expect at this event?

We have planned a wide array of activities to encourage attendance at the convention and show our community that this really is an event for them.   

· Local artists have been invited to compete in a design contest of possible mascots.

· A costume contest with children and adult categories to support our local cosplayers and costumers. 

· Attendee-run panels will allow members of our community to share interests with others and provide a safe environment for those who are interested in learning about a variety of topics. 

· A Vendor Hall will provide a space for local artists and creators to showcase and sell their work. 

Most of all, we will provide a safe space to create connections with others, make memories, and strengthen our community.
