The Seminole Community Library at St. Petersburg College invites you to attend the third annual Pinellas Comic and Maker Con (PCMCon). It is the biggest comic convention in Florida’s most densely populated county and is for fans of comic books, gaming, sci-fi, fantasy, anime, costuming and maker culture. More than 4,000 people attended last year’s PCMCon convention. Event details include:

There will be exciting activities for people of all ages including costume contests, video and board gaming tournaments, and appearances by the Star Wars 501st Legion, the Real Tampa Bay Ghostbusters, and many others.

This convention has proven especially attractive to Pinellas residents who may not be able to attend other fan cons because of the distance or cost. Young adults, children and older fans alike will find something to enjoy. All events are free.

Dozens of local businesses and organizations will have booths to sell fan collectibles, promote upcoming events and share services and resources.

Attendees can expect:

  • costume contests
  • food trucks
  • live entertainment
  • a haunted nature trail
  • expert presentations on a variety of topics
  • movies
  • crafting and maker culture
  • displays themed around superheroes
  • sci-fi
  • anime
  • emerging technologies
  • gaming
  • collectible toys.

Science and technology geeks will get a look at the library’s new Innovation Lab that includes a 3-D printer built locally by FreeFab3D, robots, Arduino and Raspberry Pi kits, virtual reality headsets, littleBits Synth Kit, a DIY hologram viewer and more that the public can explore throughout the day. Other exhibitors specializing in “all things maker” will be on hand as well.
