Evansville Raptor Con 2022 – New Location, A Weekend Full of Events and Celebrities Like Jason Marsden, and Santa
Ok, it may seem weird to include Santa Claus in a pop culture and geek con, but Santa knows how amazing Raptor Con 2022 is going to be, and how else will he know which costumes we want for Christmas?
This will make me sound old, but 'Back in my day', we had to travel to Louisville or Indianapolis to attend a quality comic con. Now we have Raptor Con, and the 2022 lineup of events, contests, and celebrity guests just proves that Evansville supports geek culture in a big way.
Raptor Con 2022 New Location
Last year Raptor Con was held at the Vanderburgh County 4-H Fairgrounds, but this year the event will be held at The National Guard Armory in Evansville. This is a more centralized venue for this inclusive geek convention.
Side note, I'm still getting used to Geek being a positive word. Yes, another old person reference, but I'm super happy that geeks like me are embraced by pop culture now.
