We design our events to reach people across all geek interests, and that breaks geek stereotypes to allow us to attract more women than men in every age bracket. 

Sponsorship Zones

Registration

Attendees must check-in to enter the events, and this area is the first stop for attendees. Run by the founder’s mom, this stop serves as a warm welcome. Attendees pick up their branded wristbands or badges here.

Cosplay Lounge

Our Cosplay Lounge is the central point of activity for the many cosplayers who come to our events to meet up for group photos, take individual photos on fantasy backdrops, make new friends, and sign up for contests.

Celebrity Area

Many of our celebrities take selfies with fans, and their booths serve as a backdrop. Be a part of these treasured photos that fans share immediately to social media.

Costume Contests

The most competitive aspect of our events, cosplayers from every skill level compete for prizes and strut their stuff in front of huge audiences on our stages.

Main Stage, Super Stage, & Hero Stage

These stages feature Q&As, comedy, shadowcasts, and the must-see costume competitions. This is a spine-tingling experience for fans to get to know their real-life heroes better by seeing them in person or even asking a question.

Fantasy Super Cosplay Wrestling

FSCW is wickedly funny, edge-of-your-seat, live wrestling action in cosplay. Professional Wrestlers dress up in cosplay to prove once and for all who would win in a fight. This is a GalaxyCon fan favorite!

Video Gaming

The Video Gaming Arcade features 100+ consoles and PCs for tournaments and non-stop free play. Tournament finals are held on the Video Gaming Stage in front of an audience of attendees. 

Social IRL

Our Social Room features activities designed to break the ice, engage with others, and make new friends. We feature improv, theater games, trivia, speed friending, karaoke, and more in this room.
