It started as a question on a Facebook page. That kernel of an idea spread, grew and transformed into one of the most anticipated events of 2016 in the Sioux Empire.

I’m so excited to tell you about SiouxperCon. It’s Sioux Falls very own entertainment and comic convention. It’s in April at the Best Western Plus Ramkota Hotel in Sioux Falls.

The creators of SiouxperCon describe it as a fan convention celebrating several mediums: including comic books, anime, board games, video games, science fiction, and fantasy. They want it to be a place to celebrate all nerdoms in a safe, educational, and inclusive environment. It’s brought to you by a group of local customer service professionals.

“We’ve got a great group of people putting this on, and a great community to hold the event in. We are extremely excited about the local talent and businesses who are involved as exhibitors and sponsors, as well as the guests we are bringing in. This is going to be fantastic,” event founder Brian Broekemeier said.

SiouxperCon runs Friday, April 15th through Sunday, April 17th. Tickets are on sale now. The convention begins with Siouxper Brawl, a video game tournament, on April 15th (get the info to take part here). Panels, vendor booths, and Artist Alley will be open on Saturday, April 16th and Sunday, April 17th. Plus there’s the cosplay contest.

Featured guests at SiouxperCon include comic book writers and Iowa natives Phil Hester and Eric Gapstur. Artist Tom Nguyen, writer Sean E. Williams, and artist Gordon Purcell will also be there.

It’s also a non-profit event dedicated to promoting literacy and valuable life skills in an inclusive and friendly environment. Net proceeds from the convention will benefit REACH Literacy and the JY6 Foundation.
