Kids Con New England Promotes Creativity and Literacy in Concord

On Saturday, May 11, 2024, the Everett Arena in Concord, New Hampshire will host Kids Con New England, a comic con event designed to promote education, literacy, and creativity among children. The event promises to be a fun-filled day with various activities and attractions, running from 10am to 5pm.

Attendees will have the opportunity to meet renowned comic and children's book creators, as well as interact with superheroes, princesses, Pokémon, and Star Wars characters. Kids can engage in creative workshops, Jedi and superhero training, magic shows, princess sing-along and storytime, video and tabletop games, art and cosplay contests, a scavenger hunt, and musical performances.

For children who need a break from the excitement, a "calmer space" will be available. Kids under 5 years old get in free, while tickets for others range from $0 to $15. All activities are included with admission, and attendees can expect fun comics and prizes at the door.

Event organizer Emily Drouin, an artist herself, expressed her motivation for creating Kids Con New England: "I want to encourage the next generation of creators, inspire the next generation to come and create their own stories and get inspired by all the children's creators here today."

The event featured an Artist & Author Alley with several children's book authors and illustrators available for meet-and-greets. Multiple vendors were also present for families to visit. Throughout the day, kids participated in crafts, art workshops, performances, games, and contests.

Following the success of Kids Con New England in Concord, organizers are already planning another convention in South Portland, Maine this fall. To purchase tickets and learn more about upcoming events, visit Kidsconne.com.
