Infinity Con is a one-of-a-kind pop culture convention that brings together artists, enthusiasts, and creators of comic books, video & tabletop gaming, anime, sci-fi and more. In addition to over 100 vendors, artists, and exhibitors, we're expanding to include specialized areas concentrating on anime, gaming, cosplay, and kids. The gaming area, dubbed "Gameaggedon" will feature freeplay console games, pinball and arcade games, table top games, and VR games. Don't miss the action-packed, arena-sized Super Smash Brothers tournament happening all weekend in the arena, or the ever-popular Cosplay Contest on Saturday. Join us in Tallahassee in June for other exciting family-friendly events and entertainment throughout the weekend.
