blog post | October 5, 2017 | by Cassidy Dwelis


Designer Con is right around the corner! Taking place November 11th and 12th 2017, Designer Con is an annual art and design convention that is not limited to any one form of art! Collectibles, designer toys, apparel, and more are celebrated at this convention and artists of all media are welcome.

The convention, launching in 2006, has 400 vendors and over 150 artists, as well as amazing panelists. This year’s lineup includes Fungisaurs, Clackeys, Stephen Silver,  Kidrobot, Paul Frank, Mold3D. and more. Individual artists sell at booths in the vendor hall, as well as large toy and collectibles companies, plushy makers, and art suppliers.

Even the after party is artsy. On Saturday, after the convention closes, VIP attendees have the option to attend an after party, which includes an art battle event called Secret Walls. There will also be live music and other live painting.

While the vendor registration list for DesignerCon 2017 is sold out, artists are encouraged to apply for the 2018 wait-list.

Tickets are only $10 for a 1-Day Pass, $15 for a Weekend (or 2-Day) pass, and $35 for a VIP pass which allows you to come both days, 1 hour early entry, Weekend Panels, and the after party! Children that are 12 and under get into the show free, and you can buy tickets online.
